DVS Week 36/40 | MAY 13 - MAY 17, 2019

Calendar: What's Happening at DVS This Week?

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The highlights for this week include;

On Thu May 30, 2019 at 2pm there will be a Dedication of the Gymnasium to ex-Principal/PE teacher, Steve Miller. This will include a whole school gathering and then a "reception" in the library. If you had children at school when Steve was here, and would like to attend, then you are cordially invited. Please RSVP to the office.

NHSAS finishes on Monday for students in Grades 3-5. We are in the middle of F&P Benchmarking, which will continue through the week.

A highly recommended event, open to all the community, is the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement community event 3:30pm at Gilbert H Hood. Scarlett Lewis’ six-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was murdered in his first-grade classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut in December 2012, alongside 19 of his classmates, and six educators in one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history. Scarlett started the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ to foster the understanding that with the right tools, we can educate and encourage individuals to choose loving thoughts over angry thoughts.

The week ends with one of the most exciting days of the year. We welcome the class of 2019-2020 at the Kindergarten Orientation. We welcome the students and their parents to Derry Village.

Have a great week.

Sincerely,

Chris McCallum
