Duniway Update 11/5/21

Posted by Sarah Erickson on 11/5/2021

Dear Families,

The days seem to be flying by.  We are in November where we have parent/teacher conferences and teacher planning days.  We are celebrating student successes and there is a lot of wonderful things happening at Duniway.  As always, I feel very fortunate to be working with such a wonderful staff.  

Thank you to all the community members who have already contributed to the Duniway Foundation’s 2021 Annual Fall Giving Campaign!  Below is a first peek at participation levels by teachers.  You have until Nov 12th to help your class win an ice cream party -- and make sure we can continue to fund important teaching positions that support our school community. Please click the link above to donate, or to learn more about the Duniway Foundation and its Annual Campaign.

No School:

Don’t forget that we have NO SCHOOL on November 5th, 11th, and 12th. Teacher workdays and Veterans Day.


Daylight Savings time:

Don’t forget to turn back your clocks this weekend.  We wouldn’t want to be late for school on Monday!


Form of Communication

Duniway is trying hard to be paperless, so all our school announcements and Updates (newsletters) will be ONLINE.  Please be sure to check your email every Friday (unless, like this week, the last day of school is on a Thursday) for the Update.  The email addresses we are using are the ones you entered into the registration verification that needs to be updated yearly.  If you haven’t done it online, a hard copy is coming your way.  Please make corrections and return it to school as soon as possible.



Don’t forget to sign up for parent-teacher conferences.  Check with your child’s teacher for times that are available.


School Pictures

School Pictures were taken on Friday, October 29th.  There will be a make-up date on December 8th.  Because we are doing everything online this year, you can order pictures online by visiting Dorionstudio.com and searching for Duniway.

We received some feedback on this photo session. We changed photographers because Three Like Minds no longer exists.  We tried Herff Jones last year and decided to go with Dorian this year.  If you have comments or concerns, please let the office know directly.  We appreciate your feedback.


Lost & Found:

Half of the lost and found was cleaned and donated.  The racks are full again, with a variety of clothing, but here are no names in them!  They would all go back to their owners if we had names, so please label your child’s coats and sweaters.  The Lost & Found is located right inside the front door, so ring the bell and we will let you in to take a look.


Publicity Denial:

This time of year, the Foundation and PTA are taking pictures of the students during classroom activities.  This is for the Auction Slideshow and Yearbook.  If you do not want your student photographed, you need to submit this form to the office as soon as possible Publicity_Denial_Non-Release_E.pdf 


Swag Store Link:  https://stores.inksoft.com/duniway_spirit 

The Duniway Spirit Store is open now through November 21st!  Place your order for Duniway Swag!  Orders placed by November 21st will be available for pickup on December 13th.


OBOB Update:

Thanks to all the parents who were able to attend our first meeting.  Looks like we are going to have another great year.  Sign-ups for OBOB are due by November 30th.  Here is the link:  https://forms.gle/LkEEw8hdittFAKap6

You do not need to be a member to sign up.  We will work together with other teams and coaches to place individual students on a team if space is available.  As always, contact me if you have any questions at Merylrf@yahoo.com


Finally, have a great weekend, take care of yourself and your family, be safe and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.
