DARE Essays

Students have been working on their DARE essay for the past week and a half now. Hopefully, you have seen them working on this at home! If not, remind them that this is due by Wednesday, November 13th. This essay is a requirement for DARE graduation, therefore if a student does not complete an essay, they will not graduate from DARE.

DARE Graduation

DARE graduation will be on Thursday, November 21st. Families are invited to attend and watch their child graduate from this program. Graduation ceremonies will begin promptly at 2:00 in the gym at Ockerman Elementary.


Thank you to the parents who attended our first round of conferences this past Thursday night. Those of you that I did not meet with me this week have probably signed up for your conference for next week, Wednesday the 13th. Please make sure you are on time; if you are late, I will have to start your conference time anyway and you will miss out on part of your time. I'm sorry to have to do that, but the times are booked solid and I have to be respectful of the other people who have signed up for a specific time.

No School

We have no school on November 27th, 28th, and 29th.
