DuVall Elementary School

February 27-March 3

Dear DuVall Families,

I hope you have power and are doing well. For those still without power, I hope it is restored very soon! If I can help you, in any way, please let me know. Many thoughts and wishes for your healthy and safety.

We have a very busy week. Please review the calendar below. March is Reading Month begins on Wednesday. A calendar of events will be sent home. The link to the calendar is listed below in the notes as well. There are a lot of fund raisers this week, Buffalo Wild Wings and the end to the spirit wear and Little Caesars. Whatever you or your family and friends can do to support DuVall is appreciated. If you have any questions about any events, please let me know.

DuVall is such a special place. I haven’t said it in awhile but thank you for being such an awesome community! Our students are so fortunate to have such loving families, neighbors, teachers, and friends that are helping them to develop into kind and successful people.
