President's Corner

February 1, 2020

Dear Families of Duanesburg Central Schools:

Welcome to 2020! We in the DCPTA are so excited for the events and programs we have to offer our students and families this year!

Our first event of the year is our 2nd Annual DES Wellness Week ~ February 10th—14th, 2020! With support from our district-wide wellness committee, the DCPTA has scheduled a series of community presenters to teach our children about healthy living. Kicking off our week will be lessons about healthy meals with our very own students from Mrs. Rundblad’s high school Food and Nutrition course. Throughout the remainder of the week, students will learn about mindfulness, the dangers of vaping, chiropractic health, and dental health. We are so grateful to have professionals in our community willing to volunteer their time to give supplemental educational opportunities to our students!

In other exciting news, the DCPTA was awarded a grant to provide families district-wide with the internet safety program, Be Internet Awesome on Monday, February 10th, 2020, from 6:30 PM—8:00 PM, in the Elementary School Cafetorium (dinner will be served beginning at 6:00 PM.) The DCPTA will offer a comprehensive program about digital safety. Find out how to create strong passwords, help your children interact with friends online, engage with your children about their favorite social media, and teach them to make safe decisions online. This is a National PTA program designed to be interactive for all families. Don’t miss it!

As always, we welcome your ideas and support! The more we hear from you, the better we can provide for our students and community! Join us and start making a difference today!

With Eagles Pride,

Melissa Peterson
