Good Afternoon Dudley Dragon Families!


We are back from our Fall Break and the weather is amazing.  It is a wonderful time of the year!


Since it is Thursday, here are a few important reminders:


  • Tomorrow, Friday, October 18th is Spirit  Day. Wear your Dragon wear or the always fashionable red and white to show your Dragon spirit.
    • Speaking of Dragon wear, orders should be coming in soon.  Please remember that the deadline was extended for a week and we had a week away from school which both played a role in delaying delivery.
  • The majority of Coupon Book orders have been delivered.  I am working through a few minor order adjustments. Let me share the totals with you.
    • 286 Coupon Books sold
    • 18 Free Coupon Books earned
    • 57 Raffle entries
    • 37 Game Truck Parties earned
    • $7,150.00 collected!
    • If anyone still has a book at home, please return it to school at your earliest convenience.  We are responsible for the cost of all unaccounted for books. Thank You!
  • Monday, October 21st is a Collaboration Monday.

    • A flyer went home earlier this week
  • Saturday, October 19th is the CJUSD Community Meet and Greet Car Wash at the Center High School Stadium.  Come on out for a free car wash, grab a hot dog, and meet and greet folks from all parts of our district. We will be there from 10:00-2:00.  Hope you can find some time to swing on by.
  • Next week, we will host our annual Red Ribbon Week which is a great reminder for our students that a life free of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco, is the most healthy lifestyle.  This year, we are starting Red Ribbon Week on a Wednesday and we will celebrate straight through until Thursday, October 31st. Each Day, we will dress in a different theme:
    • Wednesday, October 23rd:  “Send a Message, Stay Drug Free”--Wear RED.
    • Thursday, October 24th:  “Sock it to Drugs”--Wear wild, outlandish socks.
    • Friday, October 25th:  Dragon Day the theme is Disney.  Dress as your favorite Disney character
    • Monday, October 28th:  “Use Your Head, Don’t Use Drugs”--Wear your coolest hat.
    • Tuesday, October 29th:  “Hugs Not Drugs”-- bring a stuffed animal to school
    • Wednesday, October 30th:  “The Future is Bright, No Drugs In Sight”-- Wear college gear
    • Thursday, October 31st:  “Your Choices are the Key to Your Dreams”--Wear pajamas. 

That’s all I have for this week.  


I hope you have a great weekend.
