Parent-Teacher Conferences, Week of Feb. 10-13
Please make parent-teacher conferences a priority on your schedule. It is a very important time to have a conversation about the progress of your child. Our staff dedicates a great deal of time in preparing for these conferences. If you haven’t scheduled your conference, do so by sending in a note to your child’s teacher. Thanks!

The PTO’s Spring Flower Sale begins in early March !!! A wonderful selection will again be offered; so as you plan for this year’s garden (and Mother’s Day), please consider buying from us.

Blizzard Bag

Dear Alton Darby Elementary Parents:

Below you’ll find a link that will take you directly to the Alton Darby website for “blizzard bags”.  If we have any additional calamity days, your child should go to this page to get and complete necessary school activities. You will find that each grade has a Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 for their  reading, writing and social studies assignments.  Students will also need to click on the appropriate grade for math and science assignments so each day’s activities can be completed. Basically, there are five (5) different activities that need to be completed for each calamity day.

View our blizzard bags 

Your child’s teacher does have the opportunity to adjust and/or modify the work included in this website. If this does occur, the teacher will communicate the appropriate information to you. Your child should then complete the work supplied by their teacher rather than the posted work. The assignments are due two weeks after the calamity day. If you do not have a printer, assignments will be given in paper form upon returning to school. At that time, your child will have two weeks to complete the assignments for credit.  Read more information regarding this policy.

As a staff we appreciate your help in providing this support for your child’s education.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me.  Thank you.

Mr. Hennes
