    Book Fair

    Grab your parkas and snow boots because the Arctic Adventure Book Fair is coming to DPM! Our fall Scholastic Book Fair will take place November 18th – 22nd (the same week as Parent/Teacher Conferences). The Fair will be open daily during school hours and after school until 3:00. New books by favorite authors and fun series books will be there...snow much to read! 

    If you like online shopping you can shop the Online Fair from 11/10/19 – 11/23/19. Go towww.scholastic.com/fair and type in Del Paso Manor. All sales benefit the school Library and will be shipped directly to your home.

    A new feature of the Book Fair is that parents can now set up an e-Wallet! e-Wallets are available for setup two weeks prior to the Fair start date. You set the spending limit for your child. If you have multiple students you must create an e-Wallet for each; accounts cannot be shared. The pre-authorized amount will expire after the last day of the Fair. Just go towww.scholastic.com/fair and type in Del Paso Manor to access the e-Wallet set up page.

    The Book Fair doesn’t work without volunteers…there’s snow much to do, we need you! Classroom Dojo will have volunteer sign-up information soon.



    Lost and Found

    The lost and found bin is filling up with student jackets and lunch boxes. If our child is missing any items, please take a look. All remaining items in the lost and found bin over winter break in December will be donated.  The lost and found bin is cleaned out twice a year (Winter Break in December and in June after the last day of school).




    Reserve your yearbook early for the best price at only $12 until January 1, 2020.  After that date, the price will increase.  To reserve a yearbook, order online at YBPay.lifetouch.com with yearbook ID code 13028720.  Pre-purchases may only be done online. 




    If your child will be absent, please be sure to call the school (575-2330 –press 1 for attendance) each morning that your child(ren) will be absent. Upon your child’s return, please turn in any doctor and/or dental documentation to the school office. Also, if your child is tardy due to an appointment, please bring the office your documentation. This documentation is required for an “excused” absence/late.
