Crab Feed

The Crab Feed was an amazing success!   A huge thank you to Kristin Gabbard, our Crab Feed coordinator, for a great job!  Thank you to all of our PTO members who supported this huge undertaking.  The proceeds from this event go to support our Dunham community through enrichments, field trips, class supplies, etc..  On behalf of all our students and staff, thank you!

Monday Morning Assembly

Everyone is welcome to attend our upcoming Monday morning assembly.  This month we will spotlight 3rd grade.  We will also be talking about our month’s focus on random acts of kindness and encouraging students to fill each other’s buckets with kind words and acts.

Garden Enrichment

We are very excited that our garden enrichment is starting up a little earlier this year.  The class schedule will be the same as the 1st trimester with K, 4, 5, and 6 being on Thursday afternoon and TK, 1, 2, and 3 on Friday afternoon.  While garden classes will be indoors on rainy days, the ground may still be a little muddy even on other days.  Please encourage your children to wear clothing they can get dirty in on their garden day.
