    Pathways for November 14th

    Pathways for November  14th ______________________________________________________________

    REMINDER:

    If there is any change to how your child will go home at the end of the day (or if you will be picking up your child early from school), you are to send a note to the office at DP that has:

    -          Child’s first and last name

    -           Child’s teacher

    -          Date

    -          Time you will be at DP (or the new arrangement for going home)

    -          Your signature

    An email or phone call to the teacher may go unchecked, so the best way to communicate is by a note to the office.  Thanks for helping us keep your child safe!

    Elementary School Attendance Guidelines for Independent School District 196

    We would like to encourage student attendance every day that is possible, as good attendance helps to ensure a child’s success in school.  In the state of Minnesota it is the parents’/guardians’ legal responsibility that all elementary age children attend school.  Elementary age students who miss 7 unexcused days of school or more, according to the Minnesota Statutes regarding education, are considered at risk for educational neglect and their parents/guardians are in violation of the state law on compulsory education (see MN Statutes 260C.007, Subd. 19.)  When a child has 7 or more unexcused absences, state law requires that the school notify Dakota County.

    Students are expected to be at Diamond Path in their classrooms when the bell rings at 9:25 a.m.  If a student is not in their classroom by 9:25 a.m., it will be considered an unexcused tardy.  Excessive absences and/or tardies will result in a letter of concern from the school.  It should also be noted that 3 unexcused tardies may be considered as 1 unexcused absence.

    In order to provide for the added safety of the children, parents/guardians are to call the school before 9:30 a.m. to inform us if your child is going to be absent.  Call the school (before, during and after office hours) at 952-423-7695.  Please leave your child’s name, grade level, teacher’s name, date of absence and reason for the absence.  If you notify your child’s teacher of the absence, please also notify the office.  If we have not received a phone call before 9:30 a.m., we will call you either at home or at work to ensure your child’s safety.  If you don’t call in and we can’t reach you, your child’s absence will be marked as unexcused.

    We want to support parents/guardians and children so that all of our students have the best attendance record possible.  For more information on the connection between school attendance and school success, please visit:   www.attendanceworks.org

    A Veteran’s THANK YOU

    Mrs. Loch would like to share with our DP community the wonderful thank you note she received from one of the veteran’s who had been at DP as an election judge on November 4th.

    Dear Ms. Loch and students,

    On Sunday I distributed 68 of your wonderful “thank you” cards to veterans. For some of these Korean War and Viet Nam War vets, it was the first thank you they ever received. There were tears of gratitude in their eyes.

    So now, I’m thanking You and asking you to say thanks and shake the hand of any veteran you see.

    Sincerely,

    A vet of 34 years and his wife

    Destination Imagination

    We NEED your HELP!

    Destination Imagination is a wonderful creative problem-solving program that we are thrilled to offer to the students at Diamond Path. Last year after having ten teams participate at the Regional Tournament we sent two teams to compete at the state level. After both teams placed first, they traveled to Knoxville, Tennessee to compete at Global Finals. The 4th and 5th grade teams participated with over 16,000 students from across the world. The 4th grade team, Psychedelic Creatures placed 10th and the Squishy Flaming Dictionaries placed 34th. This year we have an all-time high number of 81 students hoping to participate in DI. However, we have one stumbling block, we NEED Team Managers. If you are over 18, a Parent, Grandparent, or are interested in overseeing a team of students as they work together creatively to solve a challenge, please email Judi Thomas, Destination Imagination Coordinator at Judi.Thomas@district196.org for more information. If we do not locate three more Team Managers many DP students will not be able to participate this year. Remember a creative mind is a terrible thing to waste!
