News for the Families of Duval Charter School at Southside
September 29, 2015
On the morning announcements, we not only take care of any notifications, but we also share a quote and reflection question of the day. So far, we've discussed themes in Attitude, Education, and Success. After the announcements, the teachers discuss the theme in their morning meeting or advisory groups. Today, we had a student submit a quote to share, and the students really took to it. Soon we will be posting some of these quotes around the building to keep them fresh in student minds.
Yours in Education,
Duval Charter School at Southside
First Fundraiser - A Great Success!
We will be forming a committee to help us determine how to spend the funds, and we would like you involved as well. Once the items are narrowed down, we'll send out a survey to all of you, the teachers, and some students o help us determine how we want to spend the money to help the school.
Spread the word! Please share our gratitude with all of those that you sold to. Let them know how much we all appreciate their help in keeping our school great!
