Everything you need to know about DeMello...

Hi DeMello Families!

No surprises...we've had yet another a wonderful week of teaching and learning at DeMello! This week, we celebrated our October Students of the Month with two assemblies. It was so gratifying recognizing a student from each class who exemplified our core value of being respectful.


Next week marks the first family night of the school year with our First Grade Literacy Camping Night! We look forward to seeing our first graders and their families at what will undoubtedly be an evening of reading fun! We are also excited to hold Fall Fest on Saturday, 11/19! Please note that Fall Fest will take place at the Cushman School, not at DeMello as originally planned.


Read on for information on the Student Council Gifts to Give clothing drive, as well as a message from Nurse Rachael, information on school lunch on 11/23 and reminders about snacks at school and our PTO PieZoni's Dine to Donate night!

Student Council Gifts to Give Drive

As you may already know, the 4th Grade Student Council has been collecting children's clothing to donate to Gifts to Give. We've received many, many donations so far and are so thankful to our families for participating in this important endeavor. Please note that the drive ends on Tuesday, November 22nd. Our Student Council will be meeting in school on Friday, 11/18 to begin preparing donations for delivery! Families--please remind your children in 4th Grade Student Council of this meeting.

A Message From Nurse Rachael

Please see the attached note on cough drops in school.


Also, families--we have many children who visit the nurse's office for snacks and our supplies are limited! Please be sure to pack your child an allergy aware snack daily.

Take-Home School Lunch Available on 11/23

As you know, we have a half day of school on Wednesday, 11/28 (the day before Thanksgiving) and there will be no lunch served that day. However, our cafeteria is offering students a take-home, frozen, microwavable pizza with Goldfish crackers and a juice box. If you would like your child to bring this lunch home, please reach out to their teacher or be sure to tell your child to indicate they would like a lunch when their teachers take count. Teachers will submit student orders to the cafeteria on Monday, 11/21. Lunches will be distributed on Wednesday before dismissal! As always, please contact the DeMello office with any questions.

PieZoni's Dine to Donate Night

Our final Piezoni's Dine to Donate night is Thursday, 11/17. What a wonderful fundraiser this has been! PieZoni's donates 20% of DeMello families' checks right back to our school. Please see the attached flyer for details and thanks to everyone who has participated in this.
