Dear Families of Duanesburg Central Schools:

It’s been another active month in our district and there is more to come! I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers that made our Halloween Bash a smashing success! Special thanks to our own Activities Chairperson, Joanie Raymond, for her tireless efforts for this event and to Chet Boehlke for designing the beautiful banner for our platinum sponsor this year. Speaking of our platinum sponsor, much gratitude goes to Jamie Mazuryk of CM Fox Real Estate (and her crew of decorators) for creating the fantastic addition of a haunted hallway for our families to enjoy. And finally, THANK YOU for attending the event and making all this hard work pay off in the biggest way – with smiles, giggles, and fun!

As the first quarter rolls to a close, we are looking ahead to fun family activities to come. MARK YOUR CALENDARS for the DES Veterans Day assembly on November 7th, DES Muffins with Our Munchkins on November 14th, and a winter event for the whole district on December 6th!

Our next DCPTA meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 6:30pm at the Junior/Senior High School. We will review our fall events, review any grant requests we receive, and offer a brief presentation by Kelly Keohan, LMHC. Ms. Keohan is a mental health clinician opening a practice in neighboring Esperance and specializes in treating eating disorders, anxiety, depression, interpersonal difficulties and addictions. She will be presenting on strategies for maintaining a healthy balance in your children’s lives.

With Eagles Pride,

Melissa Peterson
