I hope everyone is off to a great start for the New Year. Over the Holiday break, our Library/Media Center received all new tile as well as the computer lab. Our cafeteria received all new lighting so Team Dundalk is off to a great start! Now this is where we need your help. Currently, our attendance rate is 93.5% which is below the State standard of 94% and way below Team Dundalk’s goal of 95%. As you know, our motto of “Strive for Straight A’s: Attitude, Attendance, and Achievement needs to be a motto that we practice daily. We can’t separate one from the other, however, if your child is not here at school, our motto can’t be practiced. I can’t stress enough how important it is for all students to attend school daily to receive the instruction and classroom discussion that is so valuable to their learning.
Also, the second marking ends on January 15, 2016 and report cards will come home on February 4th. It is important that you continue to talk with your child about their progress and if you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
