Dudley Elementary

Weekly Update 11.9.17

Good Afternoon Dudley Dragon Families-


Happy Thursday to all of you.  And a Thursday that starts a three day weekend is especially wonderful!


Here are a few important notes and reminders.


Monday, November 13th is a Collaboration Monday.  PM Kinders and grades 1-6 will dismiss at 2:20 PM.  

    • 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

We just completed the first trimester of the school year.  Report cards came home today.  Because I have been printing report cards and award certificates, I have come across some amazing statistics that illustrate what a great job your children are doing at school.

  • 15 students from grades 4-6 earned an Honor Roll certificate.
  • 35 students from grades 4-6 earned a Principal’s List certificate.
  • 69 students in all grades earned Excellence in Writing certificates.
  • 120 students in all grades earned Excellence in Reading certificates.
  • 265 students in all grades earned Excellence in Math certificates.
  • 200 students in all grades earned Excellence in Citizenship certificates.
  • AND
  • 127 students in all grades earned Perfect Attendance certificates which means that they have been in school every single day since August 5th and have no marked tardies.

I am always a very proud principal, but seeing stats like these makes me especially PROUD!  Great work Dragons.


Our dedicated and hardworking PTA is hosting their next Family Movie Night on Friday, November 17th.  The feature is “The Batman Lego Movie.”  Doors open at 6:00 and the movie starts at 6:30.  Students must be accompanied by an adult to attend.


November is a busy month and there are some dates you should be especially aware of as they affect your transportation and child care needs.

Finally, as we take a day away from school tomorrow, it is important to pay respect and appreciation to all of our veterans, active duty, reserves, and retired.  We are honored in the Dudley community to be influenced by so many veterans.  Please join me in wishing them a heart-filled Thank You for their voluntary service.


Well, that does it for this week.  I hope you have a great weekend!
