Dear Delevan Families,
I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. I hope this letter finds you well and you are enjoying the last days of summer. Kudos to our maintenance crew. They are busy at work the day after everyone leaves for break all the way until our doors reopen in the fall. Everything is ready to welcome our students back into our building, including some extra elements (like a really cool courtyard for kids!) that will make Delevan an atmosphere that everyone enjoys!
We have focused on a new theme each year and I have come to the realization that every theme is easy to implement because of you: working together, caring for each other, helpful to everyone, and advocating for children. So I have decided that our theme for this year should be THIS IS US… #piONEer. It’s just how we naturally do business on a daily basis!
Our building is known for its comfort, warmth and kind environment. It’s a place where staff and students feel safe and welcomed. A place where everyone is working to make everyone better around them. When this takes place in a school setting, student achievement will rise, students will exhibit positive behaviors, students will strive to do better, and staff will feel appreciated. We have proven all of these and hope that we continue to keep that our focus even through some changes during the 18-19 school year.
We continue to use our Facebook page to communicate updates, reminders, school events, and school/classroom celebrations. Based on parent feedback, this avenue of communication has been extremely helpful to our families. If you haven’t done so already please feel free to “like” our page to see all of the great things happening at Delevan Elementary!
We have excellent traditions and celebrations at Delevan. We welcome all families to join us and celebrate students’ success together. Some of our traditions include: PBIS Kick-off Assembly, PTA Family Fall Fest, Halloween Parade, Grade Level Reading and Writing Celebrations, Flag Day ceremony, STEM Night, Parent/Teacher Conferences and PTA Holiday Gala. More information including dates and times will be sent home with the students.
Here’s to the 2018-2019! “Let’s Do This Right!”
