Well, we received our official NJ State School of Character Plaque today!!! Thank you to the all in the DBO community who continue to strive to make this a better place.
DBO Family, Well it has certainly been an interesting first 2 weeks of school!!! We acknowledge it has not been easy for anyone and we appreciate your support. Our students and staff have been reconnecting, establishing routines, practicing drills and navigating our different types of instruction and learning. Thank you to everyone who graciously donated chalk for our students. There were plenty of smiles as I delivered those to classrooms today. Feel free to keep sending more in!!! Take note that school pictures are coming in 2 weeks. Green cohort will have pictures on Tuesday 9/29. Gold will have pictures on Friday 10/2. All virtual students can have their picture taken and we ask parents of all virtual students to contact their child's teacher to find out the day and time. Lastly, please remember to continue completing your daily screener before school.
DBO Family, I have received calls from parents/families asking if the school needs anything or how they can help. I thought I would put this out there, but we would LOVE chalk. With maintaining social distancing and keeping students in small groups we are trying to give students things to do at recess. Chalk seems to be a big winner lately. Teachers have been dividing up chalk and putting it in baggies for each student so everyone has their own, but you would not believe how much we go through!!!! Again, this is not required and I only mention it because people have been asking. We appreciate our DBO community and thank you for your support.
