A Note From Our Principal,  Dr. Tamára McAllister

F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”  I found this quote fitting as fall arrives and this time of year brings crisp air and along with it an extra bounce in our step. I am so very happy to welcome fall!

Fall Festival  This is scheduled for Friday, October 28th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Students are allowed to wear their Halloween costumes the night of the event if they choose to do so.  *Please Note* Students can wear costumes to school on Monday 31st. This is going to be a great event with lots of food, game booths and fun.  The festivities will end promptly at 7:30 p.m. so be sure to show up early to give yourself time to enjoy all the activities and spend any tickets you purchase.  Speaking of tickets, they will be for sale in the front office October 24th – 28th at the price of 5 for $1.00.  If you wait until the night of the event they will be 4 for $1.00.  Hope to see you there!

Student Drop Off and Pick Up Thank you to all of the parents that have been following our drop off/pick up procedures.  We appreciate you!  We have had issues with some parents not following procedures though.  This is a friendly reminder that

during morning drop off it is not okay to pull up to the curb in the front of the office to drop off students.  If you are using the front parking lot, you must park your car, exit your vehicle and walk your student onto campus.  If you are using the back alley for pick up at the end of the day, you must continue to pull forward to keep the line moving and you are not allowed to park your car or exit your vehicle.  These procedures have been put in place to keep our students safe and to keep traffic moving.  Let’s all work together to accomplish those goals.

I know teachers are also looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s progress and I thank you in advance for   carving out time to meet with them.  We, here at Douglas, know that it takes families and teachers working together to help our students succeed and we appreciate everything you do to support your child in their education!
