Week 29, February 27th-March 2nd

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a great weekend and are ready for another fun week!
We would like to thank the parents that joined us for the field trip to Walmart. We could not have done it without you! The students had a great time and learned more about needs and wants. It would be interesting to see what your child asks for on your next shopping trip, especially if you ask him/her if the product you are buying or he/she asks for is a need or want.
The annual DPTO Family Movie night will be this Friday, March 2nd at 5:50 p.m. If you bring your ticket from the flyer that was sent home, a free bag of popcorn will be given to you.
Last, we would like to remind all parents to make sure that his/her child bring back the signed Progress report as soon as possible.
