Daniels Farm School's very own Buddy Bench
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. If a child is sitting on it alone, it is a signal to the other kids to ask him or her to play. What a fabulous way to continue the Daniels Farm philosophy of inclusion and kindness! Special thanks to the 2016-17 5th grade families who afforded us this opportunity.
To receive the Dolphin Digest every week, please remember to fill in the form below and confirm your subscription via email.
We have a new security clearance policy this year. If you would like to volunteer at the school for any reason you need to fill out the new security form and turn it into the school. You will need to completely fill out the entire form as a Tier II volunteer. If you have not been approved you will not be able to volunteer.
Help Earn Money for DFS - Box Tops and Shoparoo!
Send in your Box Tops. Clip those labels and have your child drop them in the Box Top Mailbox located in the DFS lobby. Please send them in a baggie with your teacher’s name marked on the bag. For each non-expired label submitted (please check those dates!) we earn $.10 for our school, which adds up quickly! The 2 classes that collect the most Box Tops throughout the year will win a popsicle party in June. Every dime counts - let’s make this year our highest earning year yet!
