Dalton's Chainlink Fundraiser

A special thank you to all who donated to Dalton's Chainlink Fundraiser! This fundraiser, organized by the Kids Corps in December, supported the Matt's Place Foundation and families with ALS. Through the generous donations of our school community, we raised $1,938.30! These proceeds will be used by the Matt's Place Foundation to purchase a household wheelchair ramp for a member of our local community who has ALS. Your generosity and kindness are greatly appreciated! What a school!

Incoming Kinder? Get READY!

Free READY! For Kindergarten workshops for parents – virtual options available

The Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children is offering free READY! For Kindergarten Workshops for parents, virtually, and at various sites around the state. When it comes to early learning, young children learn best through engagement with people they love and trust. READY! for Kindergarten workshops encourage parents to talk, sing, read and play with their child in simple ways that foster essential pre-literacy, pre-math and social-emotional skills. The age-appropriate activities are designed to begin at birth and continue through age five. This curriculum, created by the Children’s Reading Foundation, is based on current research and replicates what parents and educators of successful students have done for years. Each workshop provides FREE learning resources for families. Learn more and register for a workshop here.
