Welcome to a new school year! My name is Katherine Rhoades, and I am so excited to start a new school year here at D.U.. This is my first year at D.U.. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2015 with my Bachelor of Science in Education degree. I have taught kindergarten as well as worked with first, second, third, fourth, and sixth graders. I look forward to this new school year with all of you!

Fire Drills Alhamdulillah, we completed our first of the three required fire drills for the year on Thursday, September 14th. We were able to evacuate efficiently in about 1 minute and 20 seconds and all doors were closed properly except for one. I am so proud of our students who remained quiet throughout the process. We still have two more fire drills for the year with one supervised drill by the fire department. BoxTop$ Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to earn money for our school. Box Tops are each worth 10 cents and they can quickly add up to hundreds of dollars. Please encourage your students to keep clipping the Box Tops, glue them on the collection sheet, and send them to you. The first collection is Thursday, October 5th. The class with the most Box Tops collection will get a party and free uniform. See flyer for details.
