Dear Dolphin Families,

Jump Rope for Heart donations and envelopes are due Thursday this week.  Thank you to all families who helped their children participate in this important community outreach.  We have been working hard in PE learning about ways to keep our hearts healthy.  Our final event will be this Thursday at Bonney Lake High School from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  Permission slips for the event need to be turned into Mrs. Burd as soon as possible so she can organize a swift entry into the event for our students.

Parking for Student Pick-Up and Drop-Off
The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses Church (1607 Valley Ave. E) and St. Andrew Catholic Church (1401 Valley Ave) will allow Daffodil Valley Elementary families to use their parking lots for student pick-up and drop-off. (St. Andrew’s has requested we park in only the paved parking closest to Valley Ave.) The parking lots are open to DVE families ONLY at the following times:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 8:40 - 9:00 a.m., 3:35 - 3:55 p.m.
Wednesday: 10:20 - 10:40 a.m.

Please consider parking for both drop-off and pick-up of your child at their classroom door. This is the safest dismissal and arrival process, providing you an excellent opportunity to connect daily with your child’s teacher.

Substitute Teaching
Substitute teaching in the Sumner School District is very important to our mission of ensuring the best education for all of our students. When a staff member is absent, the substitute plays a key role in maintaining the safety of students and the continuity of the educational program. Our ability to staff our schools appropriately is dependent upon well qualified, dependable substitutes.  The District substitute pay rate is $135 per day and $76 per half day. Visit the Sumner School District Website to apply online.

Teacher Tuesday!
Teacher Tuesday is a weekly opportunity for the district to highlight highly effective educators in our schools making a difference. Every Tuesday a teacher is recognized for their continuous excellence in teaching.  To nominate a teacher for Teacher Tuesday, email
