Welcome to Dassel Elementary School

TRACK & SPORTS DAY
Our annual Track & Sports Day is fast approaching. On Friday, May 22nd, students in grades 1-4 will showcase the skills they have learned in physical education throughout the year. At each of the 20 events, students are awarded 1, 2, or 3 points based on a set standard. A special “toe token” will be given for every 5 points.
There are indoor and outdoor events from several categories. Of course, there are traditional track and field events such as running and jumping. Some events, like the pole climb, test physical fitness, while other events, like the soccer kick or football throw, are sports specific. We even include lifelong recreational games – games you might play in your backyard – such as ladder golf. As you can see, the day is really a culmination of the many things we do in physical education.
The day begins at 9:45 with grades 1 and 2 at the outside events and grades 3 and 4 at the inside events. Activity resumes at 1:00 with grades 1 and 2 inside and grades 3 and 4 outside. We hope you can join us for one or both sessions. Perhaps you’d like to take this opportunity to join your son or daughter for lunch. There is a special hot dog cookout planned to make the day even more special. Adult meal tickets are $3.40. Please purchase your lunch ticket in the office.

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:
