Du Quoin Elementary Parents and Guardians, 

Are you enjoying Rump: The (Fairly) True Tale of Rumpelstiltskin? It's been great hearing students talking about the characters and making some interesting predictions as to what is in store for our main character, Rump. The reading schedule for the next week is:

Day 12 [2/3]: pp. 73-78– The Miller’s Lie

Day 13 [2/4]: pp. 79-91–The Witch of the Woods

Day 14 [2/5]: pp. 92-105– Rump to the Rescue

Day 15 [2/8]: pp.106-112 - Straw, Straw, Straw

Day 16 [2/9]: pp.113-119 – One Bargain Too Many

Thank you to those who have made adjustments to help with the traffic flow at dismissal. As a reminder, please do not park along the picnic area where the yellow bollards are located or along the fencing. If you have others picking up your students, please relay this message. 

Looking forward this month, we do have some dates to keep in mind. Monday, Feb. 15 is a school holiday for Presidents' Day. Also spring pictures for the elementary have been set for Thursday, Feb. 25th. Watch for more information about this event soon. 

With Papoose Pride, 

Diana Rea, Principal
