Dassel Elementary Designated as 2014 Reward School
I am happy to share that Dassel Elementary has been designated a Minnesota Reward School for 2014. This designation puts Dassel Elementary in the top 15 percent of Title I schools in Minnesota.
Information about this designation can be found on the Minnesota Department of Education web-site (education.state.mn.us/ under the Data Center Tab. Click on the Minnesota Report Card Tab and then click My School. The MMR information is under the School Performance Tab).
LAURA LYNK WINS LEEA AWARD
Every year the Central Minnesota Service Cooperative honors one teacher from each building that demonstrates leader-ship, dedication, and professionalism in his/her building and district. Teachers in that building select that teacher to be recognized.
This year the Dassel Elementary teachers chose Laura Lynk, fourth grade teacher, to receive that award. Mrs. Lynk models excellence in her assignment every day, and we want to thank her for her dedication and service.
Mrs. Lynk was recognized at the LEEA banquet on Wednesday, October 29th, in St. Cloud.
Volunteers Needed & Appreciated
At Dassel Elementary, we are thankful for a strong foundation of parental support. There are many ways to be involved in your child's education, and volunteering is one of many ways to show your support of the students, teachers, and staff. It is fun to see the smiling faces of the children as they continue their journey in learning. Please consider volunteering with us at Dassel Elementary!
Upcoming Volunteer Needs:
Please feel free to contact the volunteer coordinator, Mary Neu, with questions or requests (286-4100 ext.1518).
PICKING UP YOUR CHILD EARLY FROM SCHOOL
At Dassel Elementary, the safety of your child is a priority. The Safety Committee continues to meet this year and asks the following of you:
If you are picking your child up between 8:15–3:10 from school, please come directly to the office and the office will contact your child’s teacher. Your child will then come to the office to meet you. If you know when you are picking up your child, please send a note with the time, and the teacher will have the child come to the office early.
Please wait by the east door, if you plan to pick up your child after school.
PARENTS WHO PICK UP & DROP OFF THEIR CHILDREN
All parents are asked to pick up their child or drop off their child on the EAST side of the school. For the safety of our students and staff, do not pick up or drop off children while buses are loading/unloading on the south side.
The doors to school will be locked until 7:45 a.m. each day, as we do not have supervision before that time. So please do not send your students to school earlier than 7:45 a.m.
BELIEVE * ACHIEVE * SUCCEED!
Our theme for the year is BELIEVE * ACHIEVE * SUCCEED! Throughout the year we will be working on ways to BELIEVE in accomplishing great things! We know that everyone can do it because WE BELIEVE IN YOU!!!
We BELIEVE that these programs help students achieve and succeed at Dassel Elementary:
