This is a healthy, fun, school-wide event.  Students will have 20 minutes to complete as many laps as possible by walking and/or jogging around the Del Paso Jog-A-Thon track.

Proceeds from this event will go to support programs for students; including Starstruck Dance Showcase, Field Trips, Books, Science Lab, Technology, and more. The Jog-A-Thon is a fun and easy way to contribute to these programs. Best of all…100% goes to our school!

Please support this fun event by volunteering and/or supporting your child in their sponsorship efforts.  Your volunteer form is on the bottom of this flyer.  Reach out to friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers… together we CAN make a difference!  Pledge forms must be returned to your teacher by April 16th (even if you are not gathering pledges) the top earning class will receive a class prize!

Students and Families:  The top earning student will win an IPOD touch! The top earning family will win 4 unlimited passes to Scandia Family Fun Center!  For every $15 your student raises they will receive a raffle ticket ($15 for 1, $30 for 2, etc.) for our drawing full of other great prizes. Our prizes include: 2 tickets to Raging Waters, 2 tickets to IMAX Theatre, 2 Family passes to Crocker Art Museum, Kings Paraphernalia, Family pass to Fairytale Town,  Giants skateboard deck, Buster Posey lunch pail and more!

Welcome Message from the Principal

 

It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2013-14 school year at Del Paso Heights Elementary School!  As principal, I look forward to working with all parents so that our students will have an outstanding educational experience.  I like to be visible around campus, and have an open door policy for all students, staff, and parents.

 

One of my most important goals is to keep you informed about activities, news and happenings here at school.  You can look forward to regular updates on this website, as well as timely communication about all important Dragon events.  If at any time you feel you are not receiving news from school in a timely manner, please contact the office.  I want all parents to be “in the loop” on the events at Del Paso.

 

Parents are always welcome at school.  There are many ways for you to be involved in your child’s education:  volunteering in a classroom, being a member of the School Site Council, and helping teachers with projects are a few of the ways.  Your positive, involved presence on campus promotes a feeling of community and family that will only strengthen our efforts.  As students see parents and teachers working together, they come to better understand the meaning of teamwork.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, or just want to say hello, please feel free to contact me at school, or via email.  I am looking forward to another great school year.

 

Go Dragons!
