December News

December 1, 2015

Dear Parents and Students,

Happy holidays from the DECC/New Horizons Staff! December is upon us and the hustle and bustle is beginning. Our students did a wonderful job representing our schools at the Veterans Day Parade on Wednesday, November 11. Thanks for a job well done!

Thank you to all the families and staff that are participating in the Cooking Meals for Families Program presented by Growing Healthy Kids Educational Program; a component of All Faiths Food Bank. The classes are fun and the parents are learning new and healthy ways to feed their families.

There are some important dates to mark the calendar for this month.

SAC/Boosters Meeting at DECC Cafeteria, 5:00 PM - December 10th

Coffee Sales Delivered – December 14th

Early Release Day, Dismissal at 12:00 Noon – December 16th

No Extended Day, All students are to be dismissed at 3:00 PM – December 18th

Holiday Parties & Santa - Friday, December 18th

Winter Break Dec. 21st - Jan. 1st, 2016. Classes will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 5th, 2016.

Records Day, No School – January 4th

Please remember during the winter months students still go outside for recess, weather permitting. The parent handbook outlines appropriate clothing for students. Please make sure you are familiar with these and feel free to call with any questions.

The nurse’s office is always in need of gently used clothing for students to use when they are needed. If you have any donations please send them to the attention of Nancy Ballard. Shirts and pants for both girls and boys would be appreciated.

Enjoy your time off with your family and I will look forward to seeing everyone in 2016!


Best Regards,

Mrs. Phyllis Clemons, Principal
