Dear Dunfee School Community,


 There is much excitement in the air as we prepare for the upcoming holiday season.   The Dunfee staff, in conjunction with the Student Council, will be sponsoring a gift drive.  Gift ideas will be placed on an ornament on the tree in the foyer.  The Student Council will also be promoting School Spirit Week from December 19th to the 23rd.   A flyer outlining planned activities for the week will be forthcoming.   The annual Holiday Shoppe, hosted by the PTA, will take place on December 14th and 15th to provide students with the opportunity to purchase inexpensive gifts for their families.    Our third grade students and chorus have been busy practicing for the annual holiday program to take place on December 20th.  In addition, first graders will be treated to Breakfast with Santa and our second grade classes will be participating in a special reading of The Polar Express.  As you can see, students and staff at LMDS are definitely in the holiday spirit!


As the days get shorter, and the colder weather sets in, I would like to remind students to wear a warm coat, hat and gloves to school each day.  Weather permitting, we strive to go out and get fresh air during recess, and it is important that students are dressed appropriately to ensure they remain warm.


Below you will find a list of all December happenings for your convenience.  Please note that we will be operating on the shortened day schedule on December 23rd; all students will be dismissed at 12:20 PM on this day.

December 14th & 15th:        Holiday Shoppe
