Hello Dale Street Families,
Wow-what a week! It began with some very hot temperatures and ended with an incredible Field Day. It is amazing that we only have four and a half days left in this most unique year. We anticipate a very busy week ahead with many more exciting activities! I hope everyone gets a chance to rest up this weekend as we head into the final week! Please take a minute to review the awesomeness that occurred this week.
On Tuesday, Dale Street staff honored 2 amazing Dale Street employees. We were able to thank Music teacher, Barbara Oxholm and Administrative Assistant, Megan Infantino for everything they have done for our students, their families, and our staff. Barabara is retiring and Megan and her family are relocating out of state. We will miss both of them greatly.
Just because we're taking a break from school for the summer doesn't mean you need to take a break from reading! Check out our Medfield Summer Literacy Website for resources and information to keep your family reading, writing, and talking all summer long!
On Wednesday, Mrs. Vancura and I got to have a closeout meeting (and share cold treats) with Dale Street's Student Council to thank them for all of their efforts this year. We are so proud of these leaders and know that they will continue to do great things!
This week, grade 4 Cohort D students participated in some end-of-the-year math review with Mr. Davanage. Congratulations to Cameron who solved the mystery picture!
The Grade 5 Celebration will be Thursday, June 17th, and Friday, June 18th (this will be a rain date) at 9:30 a.m. for Dale Street's Grade 5 Celebration. This year, the Grade 5 Celebration will take place on the basketball court outdoors and we are hoping for dry and nice weather. Grade 5 families are welcome and we are asking that all guests bring a lawn chair for seating in an area off the pavement. The health and safety of our students, their families, and the staff continue to be our number one priority. Therefore. we are asking that there are only 2 guests per student and that you refrain from bringing children. In addition, if you are not seated more than 6 feet apart from a non-family member you are expected to wear a mask.
Please send students to school with a refillable water bottle with their name on it so that they can stay hydrated throughout the day. We have a large number of unclaimed reusable water bottles in our lost and found that may belong to your child- please tell them to stop by and look if you are missing one. Putting your child's name on it will ensure that it is returned if found. Students may refill their bottles using one of our two bottle filler stations. We hope to be outdoors as much as possible for the remainder of the year so students may wish to have a hat and sunscreen moving forward as well.
Is your child missing a sweatshirt? A lunch box? A water bottle? All of the above??
Please ask them the check the overflowing lost & found! Tables with lost and found items have been placed in the lobby.
Unclaimed items will be donated at the end of the school year.
Like in past years, the PTO is partnering with 1st Day School Supplies to get all your supplies for your student for next school year.
The teachers have given us the supply list for each grade and 1st Day School Supplies will assemble and deliver them for your child.
All name-brand supplies will be packaged individually for your student. Items will be shipped to the school and ready for your child on their first day.
Sign up now. The sale closes July 1st!
Please make sure all Dale Street Library books are returned to school ASAP. Thank you for your cooperation in making sure our library is ready for next year's students.
Any students transferring to another school district or attending a private school, please make sure to contact the office before the end of the year.
