Thank You!

A huge thank you to our awesome PTA, and fabulous parent volunteers! The staff luncheon and dessert bar was FANTASTIC! This is just one more piece of evidence that Dyer has the best parents around! Everyone here felt appreciated, loved, and stuffed! The teachers also really appreciated being able to eat with their colleagues. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Important Reminder From The Cafeteria

Friday, April 29th was the last day for cafeteria charges. Please take a moment to log into MyPaymentsPlus and make sure your child has adequate funds available in their lunch account for the remainder of the school year.

Media Center News

The last day for book check was Friday, May 6. All books are due on Wednesday, May 11. Please help your children find any missing books. If a book is lost, please make arrangements to pay for the lost book.

Information about our summer learning program was sent home in the Friday folders. There are two parts to the program this year: reading 60 minutes a week and completing 45 pages in the Summer Bridge Activities workbook. We are excited about the prizes the children will earn if they successfully complete both parts of the program. See the flyer for more information.

The Summer Reading Buy One, Get One Free Book Fair will be here from Tuesday, May 10 - Friday, May 13. Be on the lookout for flyers.

Volunteers are needed for the book fair. All volunteers get 10% off of their purchases. This is a great deal when it is a buy one, get one free fair!
