After school, do you ask your student if he/she had a good day? Do you engage your child in a discussion about how he or she spent their time while in the care of the teachers and staff members at DES? We hope each parent finds the time to ask these questions and more so you can hear how your child's life was impacted by the happenings and educators at Dunwoody Elementary School. When you asked these questions we hope you heard some of the following:
"We learned how to add fractions today."
"Our teacher played kickball and her team won!"
"I heard my brother on WDES this morning saying the Pledge of Allegiance with the other boy scouts."
"I heard a symphony perform Don't Stop Believin' by Journey."
"I saw our principal at Chick-Fil-A."
"I harvested and ate lettuce from our school garden. And it was good!"
"I honked the horn of a police car."
"Mrs. Sanders was called a 'Principal Dragon Goddess' by our visitor!"
"I learned how to draw a 'corn dog'."
We are thankful to have such wonderful staff who plan and coordinate field trips, author/illustrator visits, recycling events and organic gardening management; as well as teaching, guiding and nurturing our children every school day.
Amy and I are also very thankful for the many parent volunteers that have already volunteered 10 or more hours this semester and those that are on their way to earning their 10+ hours. Each one of you is a valuable piece to the puzzle of enriching our children's education.
Thank you and happy Thanksgiving!
