Friday Folder – November 13, 2020


November 13, 2020

Dear Dunham Families,

Picture Day will be on December 4th!  It will be a drive through style with pictures being taken in the Community Room.  Time slots will be assigned by last name.  More information about the drive through process and time slots will be shared in next week’s Friday Folder.  Order form information is attached below.

Checkout our school website at http://dunhamsd.org/ .  Under the “Parents” tab you will find links for all of our classroom websites.  The teachers have created wonderful class websites to help you access things like homework, websites, communication, and calendars. 

Next week are parent / teacher conferences. I would highly encourage everyone to make sure you attend your student(s) conference.  It serves as a great opportunity for the school and home to communicate and collaborate about helping our kids. 

On November 25-27 there will be no school in observance of Thanksgiving.  With no school on November 25 materials pick-up and drop-off on November 18 will be for two weeks worth of materials.

The Book Fair ends this Sunday, November 15.  It is an online fair and is a great way to get kids reading during winter by buying books as holiday gifts!.

Below is more information about Spirit Day, the Book Fair, and an update about the Create and Donate Fundraiser. Be sure to check these things out.

Take care,

Daniel Hoffman

Superintendent / Principal


Spirit Day

Sports Day is on Wednesday, November 18.  We encourage all Dunham Dragons to show your school spirit and dress up. If you would like to share your school spirit with your classmates have a parent email a picture to dhoffman@dunhamsd.k12.ca.us and we will post it on the school’s Facebook page.

PTO – Book Fair!!!

We are thrilled to be partnering with Copperfield’s Books to provide an Online Book Fair fundraiser for our school!  This is a fabulous opportunity for us to support a local business, while also raising money for much needed resources to help us better support our students and families.  Everything you need to know is attached below.


PTO – Create and Donate Fun-Raiser – Update

Are you looking for that fun and super easy art project? Maybe a great homemade gift to give over the holidays? Join us for our Create and Donate Fun-Raiser. For $30 each, you’ll receive a wooden sign, the paint color of your choice, and a vinyl sticker with a saying on it. Please see the fliers below, confirm which saying(s) you want and select your paint color. The school receives A minimum 40% back, and we get back more with more signs that sell! These make great gifts or add that little bit of personal flare to your home or office. These are fun and so simple, even the young kids can do it! We will be hosting a zoom meeting so we can all make signs together with some help and guidance, or you can reach out for instructions and do it on your own. Hope to see you there!

Important update about this event: 

Due to the extremely low numbers of orders, we will be extending the deadline to order until Wednesday December 2nd. The new event date will be Saturday December 5th. Please read all the fliers for all the information. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for understanding.
