Olweus Anti-Bullying Program

In conjunction with the school-wide Olweus anti-bullying program, Dallas Elementary School students in Mrs. Bird’s, Mrs. Farrell’s, Miss Palfey’s, and Mr. Viglone’s third grade classes participated in a fund drive to show kindness and caring to students in a neighboring, city school in Scranton. Students were asked to donate $1 to wear their pajamas to school for their Friday anti-bullying lesson. All proceeds collected went to “Operation Warm”, a national non-profit program that the Scranton Firefighters have partnered with, to provide needy children with a brand-new, American made coat for the winter. The third graders raised enough funds for five coats to be produced and shipped to our area.


International Walk to School Day

Students at Dallas Elementary School laced up their sneakers to celebrate International Walk to School Day on October 5, 2016!!! They joined children in the United States and 40 countries from around the world to celebrate the health benefits of walking to or walking at school. Walking is an easy exercise that anyone can do! Walking also helps the environment by eliminating the number of cars and buses on the roads. Take some time this week to promote health, safety, and the environment by simply taking a walk together. So lace up those sneakers and let’s get walking!!!

Clear or Mesh Backpack Pilot

The Dallas Middle School and Dallas High School are piloting a clear or mesh backpack initiative this year in order to enhance school safety. Although the elementary schools are not mandating clear or mesh backpacks this year, I am recommending that you consider a clear or mesh backpack when purchasing one for your child. Depending on the success of the secondary initiative, the elementary schools may be moving to clear or mesh backpacks at some point in the future.
