What a wonderful start to the school year! We had a GREAT three days. Classes settled in, and the children got to “work” reconnecting with old friends and meeting new friends. Welcome to all of our new students and families--we are so glad you are here!
This coming week is a big one. We have our first All-School S.W.I.M. Assembly! Join us on the blacktop at 8:45am on Wednesday, September 5th to learn more about S.W.I.M., and be sure to come to Back to School Night that evening to hear about S.W.I.M. and more from your child’s teacher.
Picture Day is the next day, Thursday, September 6th. You should have received an email about ordering pictures, and a paper order form in your child’s backpack on Friday.
I look forward to an incredible year ahead. Please continue to encourage your child to try new things, and to not get discouraged when things get hard. We are learning and growing together, and of course there are things they don’t know or can’t do YET!
you for sharing your children with us!

Message from the PTA
Hello NDE Community,
What an incredible first week! It was wonderful to see our school filled with so many students, teachers, and parents getting into their new routines and connecting with each other.
We are in for a lot of fun heading into this second week with the SWIM assembly, Back to School Night, and Picture Day.
Our annual Dolphin Dash Fun Run and Pancake Breakfast will be held on Sunday, September 30th from 9am-12pm. This is a fun-filled school event—all NDE families are encouraged to attend! You can choose from a ¼ mile, 1 mile, or 5K course. There will also be a photo booth, bounce houses, face painting, and fun activities on the playground for everyone to enjoy.
All proceeds from the Dolphin Dash go toward supporting classroom and school day programs like art, music, and fitness that all of our children so deeply enjoy. The Pancake Breakfast is brought to us by the 5th Grade Class to raise funds for their Walker Creek Scholarships. When you participate in events like the Dolphin Dash, your support reaches every student at NDE.
The month of September is going to be filled with school events, so keep an eye on the calendar posted at the top of this newsletter and on our website at NDEPTA.com.
Please know you can reach out to me anytime with your questions, suggestions, or ideas! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful second week of school everyone!

FOCUS on FITNESS
Welcome Back to School! We are hoping to begin our Kids In Motion Fitness programming within the next few weeks. In order to do this we NEED parent volunteers. Please take a look at the information below and consider whether you are able to help us this year.
Kids in Motion Physical Fitness Program
This standards-based programming serves all students at North Davis Elementary from Transitional Kindergarten through 6th grade. There are three separate programs for the various grade/developmental levels. These include the T/K and Kindergarten program, the Primary program (grades 1-3), and the Intermediate program (grades 4-6). During the fitness sessions students move through a variety of age/developmentally appropriate fitness activities in small groups. All lessons plans are already written and are sent out ahead of sessions for parent volunteer review.
T/K and Kindergarten programming occurs on Wednesdays during grade level rotations. These sessions are 30 minutes in length and work with one class at a time. This entire programming runs 9:15-11:45. Talk with your child’s classroom teach about when their session occurs.
The Primary (grades 1-3) program occurs on Fridays (see info below on your child’s specific grade level session time):
First grade meets during their grade level rotations for 30-minute sessions (serving up to 25 students each session). The entire programming runs 8:40– 10:40. The individual sessions run 8:50-9:20, 9:25-9:55, recess break and 10:10-10:40.
Second grade meets as an entire grade level following lunch 12:30-1:30.
Third grade meets as an entire grade level. We need parent volunteers on site 10:35-11:45.
The Intermediate grades (4-6) work on skill-based activities. Talk with your child’s classroom teacher about when they need help with PE.
Please consider helping! This program’s success depends on YOUR HELP!
