September 8, 2017

Welcome Back!
The Elementary School opened its doors on August 29 to welcome back our students for the 2017-2018 school year!

Introducing Mr. A!
Mr. Matthew Aronian has joined our staff as the new Dean of Students. Mr. A. will be working in both the Elementary and Middle Schools this year. He has already begun getting to know our staff, students, and district! We are very excited to have him with us!

DES Technology
Mrs. Hippert's students began using their iPads this week to access the Reading Wonders program. Once they were all logged in, they had the opportunity to practice their weekly vocabulary.

Specials Are In Full Swing
Art, Music, Library, and P.E. are off to a great start! Students are having a blast in all of their related arts. Mr. Scafidi is beginning this year's Square 1 Art projects. Mr. Buono has students up and moving and singing in music. Mrs. Hasemann checked what students knew about the library and Mr. Smith had students dribbling and shooting in their first P.E. class.

Patriots Spirit Day
What better way to kick off the year than with a spirit day! We all wore our Patriots gear to kick off the NFL season! Everyone looked great!

Writing Rocks!
Mrs. Woupio's students are working together on a cut and paste writing activity.

Babola's Basketball STEM Towers
Mrs. Babola's class worked together using only newspaper and masking tape to build the tallest tower that would support a basketball.

Synonym Buns....Yummy!
Mrs. Gauthier's class worked on synonyms this week by creating some delicious trays of synonym buns (while improving their vocabulary at the same time)!

Instrumental Music
Fifth graders had the opportunity to meet Mr. Pacheco, instrumental music teacher, and hear a demonstration of instruments available to them to learn. Rental night is this Tuesday, September 12, at 6pm in the DMS Auditorium.

Parent Pick Up Reminder
In an effort to ease congestion in front of the Elementary School at the end of the day, parents picking up their child(ren) are asked to arrive after 2:25 each day. Middle School dismissal begins at 1:55 and in order for all parents to pick up their MS students, the roadway must be clear. If Elementary parents arrive prior to 2:25, they must park in the upper parking lot or visitor spaces adjacent to the building. Do NOT park in the parent pick up lane as MS parents are waiting there to dismiss their students. Our Parent Pick Up door opens each day at 2:40pm. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

PTO News
