Happy April! In this week’s edition of the Family Update you are invited to learn about important testing days for scholars, family volunteer opportunities, an update on the DPAC football chocolate bar fundraiser, and more! Please click on the link below to jump ahead directly to that article.
This week is SBAC testing for grades K-8. For a portion of each day this week scholars will need their school issued chromebooks in order to log in and participate in testing. Please save these future SBAC dates where scholars will be required to use their chromebooks as well.
- Grades 3 & 6: Week of April 25h.
- Grades 4 & 7: Week of May 4th.
- Grades 5 & 8: Week of May 9th.
We are so incredibly appreciative of the DPAC families who have already joined us to volunteer as lunch time helpers, crossing guards, Wednesday sweatshirt and food sale help, and more! If you would like to join the team of DPAC volunteers, please fill out THIS FORM and Mrs. Garcia will follow up to help get you connected!
DPAC is committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and respectful learning environment for all students, including those with diverse gender identities or expressions. You are invited to view our Safe & Inclusive School Policy, and please know that there are resources available to help all scholars thrive. Please reach out to any teacher or staff member if you would like to learn more about your available options, including the help of a Gender Support Team.
We are so proud of the dedicated DPAC football team, family, and supporters who have sold almost 400 boxes of chocolate! We are now at the home stretch and only have 100 boxes remaining. If you would like to help support the DPAC football team by selling a box of chocolates please fill out this quick form HERE and Ms. Hood will follow up to get you your box of chocolates. Please remember that all money is due back this Friday, April 8th.
Please remember that scholars are to arrive on campus every day with a mask. Currently, the school is providing over 300 masks a day to scholars upon entry to the school, and approximately another 100 throughout the day to scholars who require a replacement. That means nearly 1 out of every 3 DPC scholars requires a mask each day provided by the school. This is not sustainable. Scholars are required to wear a mask as a part of their school uniform, please help the entire DPAC community by providing a mask each day for your scholars. Cloth masks are reusable, temporary masks are available at most major pharmacies. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Next week, April 11 – April 15 there is no school for Spring Break! We hope that you all have a safe an fun Spring Break and look forward to everyone’s return on Monday, April 18th.
Please save the date! Our 4th Annual Donuts With Dad will happen on Wednesday, April 20. We would like to ask all fathers, brothers, uncles, and father figures to come and share a morning breakfast treat with your scholar. Please be on the look out for more details in the coming days.
- Grados 3 y 6: Semana de Abril 25h.
- Grados 4 y 7: Semana del 4 de Mayo.
- Grados 5 y 8: Semana del 9 de Mayo.
Recuerde que los estudiantes deben llegar al campus todos los días con una máscara. Actualmente, la escuela proporciona más de 300 máscaras por día a los estudiantes al ingresar a la escuela y aproximadamente otras 100 durante el día a los estudiantes que necesitan un reemplazo. Eso significa que casi 1 de cada 3 estudiantes de DPC requiere una máscara cada día proporcionada por la escuela. Esto no es sostenible. Se requiere que los estudiantes usen una máscara como parte de su uniforme escolar, ayude a toda la comunidad de DPAC proporcionando una máscara todos los días para sus estudiantes. Las máscaras de tela son reutilizables, las máscaras temporales están disponibles en la mayoría de las farmacias principales. Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.
¡La próxima semana, del 11 al 15 de Abril, no hay clases para las Vacaciones de Primavera! Esperamos que todos tengan unas vacaciones de Primavera seguras y divertidas y esperamos el regreso de todos el Lunes 18 de Abril.
¡Guarde la fecha! Nuestro cuarto Donuts anual con papá tendrá lugar el miércoles 20 de abril. Nos gustaría pedirles a todos los padres, hermanos, tíos y figuras paternas que vengan y compartan un desayuno matutino con su estudiante. Esté atento a más detalles en los próximos días.
