I hope that everyone had a wonderful break and was able to spend some time with family and friends. Now December is upon us and it is the time of year where were celebrate our scholars and the season. We will be holding our Winter Program in conjunction with our Perfect Attendance Assembly in the MPR of Desert Trails. Grades TK – 3 will perform on December 13th. Grades 4 – 6 will perform on December 14th. Scholars may wear their best fancy dress for the performance.
As the weather begins to turn cold please make sure that your child is coming to school with layers and a jacket. Jackets and undershirts may be any color.
We wish you all a great holiday season!
Winter Wonderland Store will be open to all scholars December 4th to December 7th. This is an opportunity for scholars to shop for gifts for the holidays. A shopping list will be sent home from your child’s teachers with the details. Items range from $.50 to $15.00. This the perfect time for your scholars to shop for mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, etc.
As we embark on Winter Break, the teachers and administration at DTPA would like to ask parents to please encourage your children to continue to read over the holiday. Scholars should have at least 30 minutes of quiet time each day to read and journal in order to keep their reading and comprehension skills sharp. Encourage your child to read aloud to you or provide you an oral recap of what they have read for the day. And if time permits, read them a fun book aloud as well!
