Disney Digest

Volume 1 Issue 8

Greetings, Disney families!

This was an exciting week at Disney Elementary School! Our wonderful community made possible two wonderful events for our students.

The Springfield chapter of Reading is Fundamental provided free books for all students in grades 1-3 this week. Every student chose a book donated by RIF to take home and enjoy! In addition, students listened and watched virtual read-alouds by parent volunteers and David Harrison, a local author! The virtual read-aloud is below for you to enjoy at home with your children.

This week, all students K-5 also received their "Disney Strong" t-shirts! Thanks to our wonderful Disney Parent Teacher Organization, every student received a free shirt to show off their Disney pride! Students were smiling from ear-to-ear when they got their new gear!

I am thankful to be part of such a loving and giving community. Thank you for all you continue to do to support our students and each other.
