DSE PTA Weekly News

April 25, 2017

Dear Explorer Parents,
Please join us this Thursday at the next General Association PTA & Foundation Meeting at 5:45pm in the MPR (prior to the TK and Kindergarten Information Meeting).  Both the PTA and Foundation will be providing updates and the PTA will be holding its PTA Board Member Election for the 2017-2018 school year.
We’ll be hosting Staff Appreciation Week May 1 – 5.  A committee of volunteers have some special treats planned to thank and honor our fabulous teachers and staff.  As part of this wonderful week, we’ll be catering breakfast and lunch for our staff each day.  We’re asking for a small donation of $5 per student in order to make this possible.  Envelopes were sent home with students last week.  It’s not too late to return your donation!  Please send it in to your child’s classroom.  All donations are voluntary – we thank you for helping us celebrate our amazing staff!
The PTA will also be hosting a Math Festival on Tuesday, 5/9.  The Math Festival is an exciting school-wide event to expose students to mathematics topics in a positive, self exploratory, festival-like atmosphere – it’s good mathematics, Common Core standards based and FUN!  All Explorer students will have an opportunity to attend and participate in this great event. 
The Principal’s Reading Challenge ends this Friday, 4/28.  Please encourage your students to finish strong – we have an awesome assembly planned for all students that have met their reading challenge goal!
