  • Would you Like Fries with That? Fun and Fund Raising at McDonald's

    Posted by Janet Bishop on 9/19/2017


    Burgers and fries and apple pies -- there was no lack of great things to eat at Washington's McTeacher's Night on September 12! Students, parents, and teachers alike enjoyed McDonald's favorites (and the fact that a part of each purchase supported the school) while teachers worked the register and carried full trays of those delicious pies to tempt customers. 

    And it goes without saying that if apple pie is good a giant, mobile apple pie is even better! Or, at least lots of fun. Staff took turns donning the pie costume - a hit with their students who couldn't wait for a photo op.

  • Off to a Great Start!

    Posted by Janet Bishop on 8/18/2017


    On a beautiful Wednesday, D63 welcomed 3,600 K-8 students back to its seven schools! There were lots of smiles, greetings, photos, and great excitement as friends reunited. The rare first-day tears shed by a few of our kindergarteners quickly dried as they met teachers and began to explore the school.

    This year Opening Day went exceptionally smoothly; students quickly and easily found their classrooms, settled in, and jumped right into learning and fun. Parents chatted and reconnected on the playground before heading home.

    Thursday was wet, but that didn't dampen the spirits of our First Step preschoolers who joined us at Apollo, Melzer, and Washington. As we head into our first full week, D63 has a full house!
