Important 2015-16 School Year Information
As a service to our families, Daffodil Valley Elementary will purchase all 2015/16 school supplies at a greatly discounted bulk rate! All supplies purchased will be of high-quality and latex-free. We ask that each family contribute $20 for each attending student to cover cost. Parents will be provided the opportunity to pay this minimal fee at our Back to School event in August. (Information regarding the time and date of this event will be communicated this summer).

Due to limited storage space at Daffodil Valley Elementary, we highly suggest students NOT bring backpacks to school beginning the 2015/16 school year. Take-home folders will be provided to your student for parent-teacher communication, homework, and other paperwork.

Información Importante del Ano Escolar 2015-16
Como un servicio a nuestras familias, Daffodil Valley Elementary comprará todos los útiles escolares para 2015/2016 a un gran descuento! Todos los utiles comprados serán de alta calidad y libre de látex. Pedimos que cada familia contribuye $ 20 por cada estudiante asistiendo para cubrir costos. Los padres recibirán la oportunidad de pagar esta cuota mínima en nuestro evento de Volver a Escuela en agosto. (La información sobre la hora y la fecha de este evento se comunicará este verano).

Debido al espacio limitado en Daffodil Valley Elementary, sugerimos fuertemente que estudiantes NO traigan mochilas a la escuela a partir del año escolar 2015/2016. Carpetas para llevar a casa se proporcionará a su estudiante para la comunicación entre padres y maestros, la tarea, u otros documentos.

Dear Dolphin Families,

Physical Education News
May has been an intense month in the gym with students finishing up their personal fitness challenges in all of the components of health-related fitness.  Primary students focused on muscular endurance challenges and learned the definition of Cardiorespiratory Endurance.  Third through 5th graders were assessed in body composition, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance, and cardiorespiratory endurance.  If you are interested in checking out the results you can go to our online fitness site called Welnet.

Campus Safety
The Daffodil Valley Elementary School campus is NOT under staff supervision before 9:00 a.m. Monday through Friday (10:30 a.m. Wednesday) and after 3:45 p.m. each school day.

Students may choose to enter the cafeteria at 8:25 a.m. (10:05 a.m. Wednesday) for our breakfast program. Otherwise, it is expected that students are supervised by a parent or guardian until classroom doors open at 8:55 a.m. (10:25 a.m. Wednesday). Bus-riders and walkers arriving just before 8:55 a.m. are expected to line-up outside of their classroom door.

At 3:45 p.m. each school day, it is expected that all students immediately leave campus, unless participating in an event or activity pre-approved by both parents and school personnel. (Dolphin Club, tutoring, etc.)

To keep students safe, playground equipment and all other unsupervised areas of the campus are explicitly off-limits both before and after school hours. 

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. 

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
