Dudley Elementary

Weekly Update 4.25.19

Good Afternoon Dudley Dragon Families-


I hope that you had a wonderful week off during Spring Break.  School is back in session and all is right with the world!


Being Thursday, here are some important announcements.


Tomorrow is Dragon Day.  Our theme is “Sports Day.”  Our assembly will be on the playground at 9:15 AM.


Tomorrow nigh is the Spring Fling Family Night hosted by our dedicated and hard working PTA.  This event runs from 6:00-8:00 PM. It is always a great time. I look forward to seeing you there.

Our state mandated CAASPP testing has begun.  This is the annual assessment that our 3rd-6th grade students take.  This is a computer based assessment and is completed completely on-line.  Here are a few suggestions for parents to help your child be as successful as possible on these assessments:

  • Check with your child’s teacher about the specific testing schedule and try to avoid appointments, absences, and tardies on the testing days.
  • Help your child get a good night’s sleep during the testing days.

Help make sure your child eats a well balanced breakfast including proteins, healthy fats, and carbohydrates.  They put the highest grade gasoline into high performance vehicles. Your child should have the highest quality fuel for maximum performance as well.


Registration for next school year continues.  If you have or know of a child who will be new to Dudley or even a new Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten student next year, an enrollment packet will need to be completed.  The registration packets are available in the school office. It is especially important for incoming Kindergarteners and Transitional Kindergarteners to get registered as soon as possible.


Did you miss the first session of Parenting with Love and Logic?  Not to worry, a second series will be starting soon. We had several families take part in this series the last time it was offered and found the information very insightful.  The sessions will be held at Wilson C. Riles Middle School and begin on May 2nd. I am attaching two flyers to the email with more information.


Finally, here are a few important dates for your calendar.

  • Friday, April 26 ~~ Dragon Day  Our theme is “Sports Day”
  • Friday April 26 ~~ PTA Spring Fling Dance
  • Thursday, May 16th~~ Open House  6:00-7:00 PM
  • Thursday, May 30th ~~ The last day of school for the year for students!

That’s all there is for this week.


I hope you have a great weekend-
