Dudley Elementary

Weekly Update 8.15.19

Good Afternoon Dudley Dragon Families!

It has been an amazing week on our campus.  The first 5 day week of the year. The children are working hard, the teachers and staff are doing an incredible job of meeting the needs of the students, so we are off to a great start!

Here are a few important reminders:

  • Tomorrow is Friday.  At Dudley, Fridays are usually Spirit Days.  This means we wear our favorite Dragon-wear, OR the always fashionable Red and White. 
  • Tomorrow, is also our first SOAR ticket raffle of the year.  Students earn SOAR tickets for meeting our Safety First, Own Your Choices, Always Kind and Respect school rules.  Each week, we draw several students who earn a special SOAR reward and a tasty little treat. This happens every Friday!
  • Monday, August 20th is a Collaboration Monday.   
    • AM Kinders attend school from 8:10 AM to 11:15 AM
    • PM Kinders attend school from 11:15 AM to 2:20 PM
    • Grades 1-6 attend school from 8:55 AM to 2:20 PM
  • Please remember to send back the Thursday folder so that it can be re-used each week.
  • The temperatures have been warm and the air quality can be challenging.  Please know that student safety is our main concern. Throughout the day I monitor both the outside temperature and the AQI.  
    • If temperatures were to rise over 100 and/or the AQI above 101, we would cancel outside recesses and keep the children in the classrooms.  
    • My source for information on these areas is and  
    • I also found a Sacramento Area Spare the Air app in the Apple App Store.  I am not sure about Android or Google Play.  
    • Rest assured that we are working diligently to find that balance between breaks for large muscle movement and student safety.
  • There are multiple ways to stay in touch with Dudley Elementary School
    • Our website is at  Check this site out to be kept up to date with events and find many valuable resources.
    • You can follow Dudley Elementary on Twitter.  You can follow @DragonsSOAR for updates.  I have challenged myself to post a tweet once each day.  It will help if I know I have followers. :-) You don’t need a Twitter account, you can go to and search @DragonsSOAR to see all of the tweets so far.

That’s all I have for this week.  

I hope you have a great weekend.
