Dale Street Food Drive
Dale Street students are collecting food and donations for the Medfield food cupboard during the month of March.
Any and all donations are greatly appreciated, but the following itemsa are especially welcomed at this time: bottled/boxed juice, 4-packs of toilet paper, peanut butter, cereal, applesauce cups, raisins, cookies, and crackers.
Drop-off boxes for food will be located outside the office. Checks can be made payable to the Medfield Food Cupboard. Grocery store gift cards are always welcome and available from SCRIP.
It has become a tradition in Medfield to organize an annual Parent Literacy Information night. This night began as a Memorial initiative, then grew to include Wheelock, and in 2014, grew to include Dale Street. The highlighted topic in 2014 was to help parents develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core Standards. Please see the attached presentation for more information and links to helpful parent resources.
Fit & Lit
We are excited to announce the First Annual Dale Street Fit & Lit Program, an incentive program designed to excite students about fitness and reading. We are encouraging families to spend 30 minutes each week exercising together and reading together. Our goal is for each student to read for 30 minutes and exercise for 60 minutes each day. The school-wide goal is 1,000,000 minutes! Please see the attached document for more information about this program and for a printable Log Sheet.
Completed logs will be collected each Friday and charms delivered to students on the following Monday. Final logs are due on Friday, April 11, 2014.

Report Card Rating Memo
Attached is a memo regarding our report card rating system. Recently, the K-3 report cards were revised. We will be revising our report cards soon to reflect the new standards but in the meantime we wanted to be clear about what the numbers mean. As always, if you have any questions, please contact the principal.
When school is closed, delayed or dismissed early, the new Blackboard-Connect Notification System will send a call to each household land line and parent cell phone number currently on file. In addition, the announcement will appear on:
Please see the attached letter from Superintendent Marsden regarding this new method of notification.
What is a Thursday Packet?
Medfield schools created the electronic Thursday Packet as a replacement to sending home flyers and brochures in student backpacks. Look for the Thursday Packet under the "Parent Information" menu item (above). School and community notices are posted on each school's Thursday Packet page from the date of submission until the date the event or activity has passed. New items are added every Thursday. Each school office maintains a file of all notices posted throughout the year.
We hope that parents and guardians will check the Thursday Packet section of the website on a regular basis!
Dale Street School Recycles!
Dale Street School is participating in the FundingFactory™ Recycling Program. We're doing our part to help save the environment. You can help by donating something that you would normally just throw away - empty laser or inkjet printer cartridges and used cell phones. By recycling through the FundingFactory™, we earn points that we can exchange for new technology equipment for our students.
Let's make this recycling program a huge success by working together! Just collect any used cartridges from your printers at home, put them in a ziploc plastic bag (to prevent the ink from leaking) and bring them to the Dale Street Library Media Center (LMC). We also recycle empty laser cartridges and cell phones (charger not needed). We cannot recycle refurbished cartridges or toner cartridges.
If you have any questions about this great opportunity, please feel free to e-mail Mrs. Fromen.
Thank you for your support!
