    Dear Families,

    We hope you had a delightful Thanksgiving break with your family and friends! We were overwhelmed with your generosity in giving to our DDES families to make sure everyone had a terrific day! Thank you for your kindness!

    This month we will have MAP testing for students in 1st -3rd grades for reading.  This test helps let your child’s teacher know how (s)he is progressing in reading and what skills your student is ready for next.

    For fun this month, we will have a winter door decorating contest.  We are looking forward to seeing the creative ideas of our classes!

    Winter break will begin on Friday, December 17th- January 2nd.  We will return on Monday, January 3rd.  We hope that everyone has a marvelous winter holiday!

    ~Ms. Thaxton
