Dear Dunfee School Family,

It is hard to believe that we are more than halfway through the 2014/15 school year and students and staff at LMDS continue to work diligently to achieve their goals.   The Science Fair will be held on February 25th and all students in kindergarten through fifth grade are encouraged to participate.  The evening Science Fair will have a host of interactive stations that students can explore while viewing the many projects that will be on display.   In addition, the PTA will be holding a Scholastic Book Fair the week of February 23rd and students will have the opportunity to purchase books during their Media Technology period.   For your convenience, the Book Fair will also be open the evening of the Science Fair. 

As you are aware, students in grades 3-5 will be administered the PARCC in March.  Grades 3 and 5 will be testing from March 2nd to March 11th, and students in grade 4 from March 12th to March 18th.   You can find information about the PARCC on the district website as well as our school homepage, and a letter regarding PARCC will be forthcoming.

For your convenience, you can find a list of all upcoming events for the month of February listed below:
