1. Dear eDCSD Elementary Families,

  2. Our elementary students will be starting a new unit blended this week where they will learn about animal rights. Please read the announcements below.


What happened last week at Blended?
There was no blended this past Monday due to the Martin Luther King Jr Holiday.

What is coming up at Blended?
This Monday, January 22nd at blended, students will begin a unit about animal rights and special will be PE.

Blended Reminders
Please remember that teachers are busy preparing for class before blended. If you would like to discuss your student’s progress, please reach out to the teachers and make an appointment to meet. In addition, blended pick up time is 12:00 noon. Activities run until the end of blended so please wait until 12:00 and teachers will send students into the main office when they are finished and ready to be picked up.

Vending machine (All Students)
You may have noticed that we have procured a small vending machine (if not,it is in the classroom). The Principal’s Advisory Council suggested that students needed a way to purchase breakfast, lunch and snack items during blended since we do not have a cafeteria. All profits will be used to fund student’s blended projects and scholarship opportunities for our seniors. Bring your pocket change and your appetite!

New Website (All Students)
Have you seen the new www.edcsd.org? Check out our new design! It is a work in progress but we are hopeful that you will find the new website to be more user friendly. If you have any questions, please contact jennifer.payne@dcsdk12.org.

State Testing Information
We have already begun planning for testing this spring and want to best balance uninterrupted learning time for your students with state testing requirements. Since state testing coming up soon, we wanted to make you aware of where to find important resources. For a list of dates/locations, please click here.

We fully respect your ability to make the best decision for your family as it relates to state mandated assessments. The sooner we know your wishes for participation in these assessments, the better we can plan for our school. If you as a family have decided that you do not wish for your students to participate in these assessments, I ask that you complete this process and excuse your student sooner rather than later to help us plan for the least impact to our regular academic schedule. For directions regarding parent excusals, please click here.

Please contact our school’s assessment coordinator, Janda.bliek@dcsdk12.org, or school administration with any questions.

Your Partner in Learning,
Laura Sharp, Assistant Principal
