Daniel Intermediate Weekly Update
Week of December 12, 2020
One of our strong beliefs at Daniel is to build strong relationships with our students. As COVID has made this more challenging with virtual learning, we will have Thursday, December 17th as a day where our virtual students can come up to Daniel Intermediate from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm to purchase a Kona Ice and say hello to their teachers. Students will not be allowed in the school, but we will practice social distancing outside at this event. We hope to see you there.

As we enter our last week before winter break, we will focus on missing work. Friday, December 18th is an asynchronous day; all students will be learning from home. We are encouraging all students to use this day to make up any missing work.

Thank you for allowing students to dress up for twin day. I truly loved seeing my students dress up in their Khaki pants, blue shirt, and red tie. I look forward to this being an annual event.
