We will have a mini-spirit week starting November 25th. On Monday, November 25th, students may wear their DuVall Spirit Wear to celebrate our Penguin Postcards event in the afternoon. The DuVall PTA has purchased postcards that we will write a message to Jean Pennycook, a research scientist in Antarctica, who spends two months in Cape Royds, Antarctica each year studying Adelie Penguins. The field station is devoted to working with the Adelie Penguins who come here every year to raise their chicks. Jean runs a postcard project that receives and sends back postcards to children all over the world in order to educate and raise awareness among children about Antarctica, Adelie Penguins and the impact of climate change.
On Tuesday, November 26th, we will have pajama day. Students may wear their pajamas to school (no slippers please, clothing must be school appropriate, & also be ready for the cold weather)!
This is also a short week due the the Thanksgiving Holiday, so there will be no school on Wednesday, November 27th – Friday, November 29th.
