A Message from Mrs. Plourde

Hello Deibler Families! It is hard to believe that it is October already. September was a great time to reconnect with old and new friends and we all were reminded that "Together is the best place to be"! As the leaves begin to change and the cooler weather approaches, we look forward to all of the opportunities for continued growth here at Deibler. I would like to take a moment to thank you for your support as we transitioned into the new school year!

Thank you,

Casi Plourde, Principal

The House Activity will happen by grade level OUTSIDE (on the intermediate playground blacktop) and parents are invited to attend, according to the following schedule:

Tuesday: 10/5

1st 9:30-10:00

4th grade 1:30-2:00

Parents if you plan to attend the 30 minute activity, please park in the front and walk around to the back of the building (on the right side if you are facing Deibler). There will be a table set up in the back, by the basketball nets, where you will sign in. Feel free to bring a chair or blanket, as the activity will take place on the blacktop (or grass if it is not wet).

In case of inclement weather, we will hold the grade level house activity and visitation in the cafeteria. You would enter the building through the front doors to sign in.

Students and parents are encouraged to wear their house colors on their house activity (parent visitation) day! We will also have a “house week” with positive house-themed spirit days during the week of October 4-8th! Please see the attached flyer! 😊

Thank you!

Thank you to our Deibler parents for donating and helping to beautify our school with festive fall decorations!

Fall Weather

Fall has arrived; please remember to send in your child’s jacket, sweatshirt, etc. to wear outside for recess. It is always a good idea to label your child's clothing, lunchbox, etc. in case they are misplaced.

Court Documents

Please make sure that the school has a copy of any court documents regarding child custody and related matters. We must assume that both parents have equal access to their children, and by law we must release students to either parent unless we have court papers that state otherwise. If there are documents of which we need to be made aware, please let us know as soon as possible by giving us a copy that we can keep on file. Thank you!

Ways Busy Parents Can Help Children Succeed In School

  • Set priorities. Decide what’s most important to you. (Odds are, it’s your kids!) Then consciously decide how to spend your time. Make sure your decisions reflect what matters. Have a choice between cooking a fancy dinner or reading with your child? Order pizza and read the book.
  • Spend one-on-one time. Kids need both “quality” and “quantity” time with you. There’s nothing like spending time alone with a parent to make a child feel special. Every week, make an appointment to spend some time alone with each of your children. Get out your calendar and write it in. Then treat that appointment as seriously as you would an important business meeting.
  • Find your child’s “prime time” for studying. This may be a key to their success in school. One mother found that after her daughter, a real early bird, set her study time for 6am, her grades went up. Another family of night owls found that evening study hours were best. Work with your child to find the homework time that’s best for him/her. You might find that their “prime time” works to your advantage too!
