  • One District-One Author Reveal: Andrew Clements!

    After a week of clues and mystery, D63 revealed its One District - One Author pick on September 26: award-winning writer Andrew Clements Author of dozens of books beloved by young readers everywhere, Clements has penned works ranging from the 2.5 million bestseller Frindle to No Talking and Things Not Seen: the two books our D63 community will be reading this fall.

    It’s boys versus girls in No Talking – our elementary school book – as the “unshushable” 5th graders compete to see which team can say the fewest words a day.  At Gemini, Things Not Seen will keep students on the edge of their seats as Bobby Phillips races against time to figure out why he woke up one morning . . . invisible.

    Throughout the month, families will read the books together at home – and can visit our One District - One Author website for discussion questions, a reading schedule, and even a letter from Clements himself! Students can also view video recordings of both books – each chapter read by a “D63 star” and even a few local celebrities.

    So let’s get reading! And mark your calendar as we wrap up this exciting program with a visit from Clements himself on Wednesday, October 26. Open only to D63 families, this special evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Gemini Junior High.

  • Melzer Students Check Out New Water Bottle Filling Fountain

    Posted by Janet Bishop at 9/23/2016

    Water Bottle Refilling Station

    In September, the first of two planned drinking fountain/water bottle refilling stations opened for business at Melzer. Underwritten with a generous gift from the School's PTA, the fountain helps keep students well hydrated and makes it quick and easy to refill water bottles with a special spigot. And that, in turn, reduces waste as there's no need to open a new bottle of water every time they're thirsty. The second fountain, made possible by a gift from an anonymous donor, will be up and running shortly.
