Welcome to Daniels Farm School!
Daniels Farm has been named a "School of Distinction" by the CT State Department of Education for 2016-17.
Our mission, as the Daniels Farm School Community, is to cultivate students as lifelong learners, capable of drawing upon personal and external resources to become productive, contributing community members and responsible world citizens.
The Kid’s Marathon is BACK.
Our program begins on Tuesday October 1st, runs for the month of October, stops in the winter, and will then resume again in March. All students will receive a Student Lap Tracker ID card.
ID cards will be scanned at the end of each lap. Completed laps will quickly add up! Parents can view their kid’s progress from home at studentlaptracker.com. Parent volunteers will be needed to help scan laps during recess. Be on the lookout for the iVolunteer sign-up.
For all the new families, please find attached informational sheet regarding the Kid's Marathon.
And don't forget that DFS will join other Trumbull Schools for the Final Mile Event to be held at:
Trumbull High School in May
Final Date TBD.
If you have further questions, please feel free to email Christine Hawthorne
Kidstuff & SaveAround Coupon Books will be coming home this week. One book will be sent home with the oldest sibling in DFS but you can easily order additional books.
The parent letter will give you all the details needed to purchase the coupon book, order additional books or order the appropriate coupon book for someone who does not live in this area. The letter will also explain how to return unwanted books so we can keep track of all books.
Thanks for supporting Daniel Farm and getting great deals for your family in the process,

Dear Daniels Farm School Families,
This year we are moving towards changing our car pool pick-up process slightly. We have not found tremendous success with an assigned number, so instead, we are asking all car pool families to simply write their names, printed legibly, in capital letters, on a letter-sized paper or cardboard, and place in the dashboard window, instead of the number.
As of tomorrow, we will no longer be using the number system!
