Daniel Intermediate Weekly Update

Week of December 12, 2020

Dear Families,

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.

PRICES:

$3 Klassic

$4 King

$5 Kowabunga

Color changing spoons $1


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.





Sincerely,

Mr. Chase

Principal

Kona Ice Thursday 17th 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Twin Day

Parents,


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.

Parents,


For your child's safety and the safety of all staff and students, if your child has any COVID-like symptoms, please keep them at home and contact your child's teacher. Your child can still do their work virtually and be counted present for attendance. We have four days left before winter break, and it is our desire that everyone stays healthy for their holiday break. If you have any questions, please contact our school nurse, Ms. Prince, at 972-708-3210.
