Happy November! 

Our Veteran’s Day assembly is an important tradition at Del Rio School. Led by our Student Council, all our students participate in this event to honor those who have served, or are serving our country in the military. Our assembly this year will be Thursday, November 8th at 1:30 in the Del Rio gym. The public is welcomed to attend. Again this year, students may invite relatives or family friends who have served in the military so they can be introduced and honored at the assembly. 

Thanksgiving Feast!

Del Rio’s annual Family Thanksgiving Luncheon will be held Wednesday, November 14th. This event is a delicious feast of   turkey and much more that families can join their students at school to enjoy a luncheon together.  In order to simplify the process and trying to make it more efficient, all student lunches will be deducted from their account.  The cost for those students on free/reduced lunch will be the same as any other day.  For all other students who plan to eat that day, we ask that money is deposited in their lunch account for this meal prior to this event.  Every student has an account open even though he/she may have never used it due to always bringing a lunch.  The cost of a student lunch is $2.75 and the cost of an adult lunch is $3.75.  All sibling/adult lunches will be cash only and sold at the door, not as prepaid ticket as has been done in the past.  Lunch times have been extended for this event and times are posted in this newsletter.  Come join your student during their grade level lunch time and enjoy.

Del Rio Pawsitives and Character Counts – Student of the Month

Cora is the pristine example of how a student should be at Del Rio. She is dedicated to her academics and so hard working every day in school. She loves to read big chapter books and is always challenging herself to master new series. Outside of school, she is learning Kung Fu and how to use a bo staff. She is kind to all she meets and always lends a helping hand. 

Cora is a Character Counts nominee for the month of October for the character trait of trustworthiness. Mrs. Hawkins, her third grade teacher states that “Cora is a very reliable and dependable student. She prides herself on telling the truth and doing the right thing when no one is looking. She is one that doesn’t need an adult around to do what is expected. I am so privileged to have a student like Cora in my class this year.” 

We thank you Cora, for standing out amongst the crowd here at Del Rio School! Keep up the positive  qualities!

 DRS Student Council Fundraiser

Student Council is having a Fall Fundraiser.   Students have been given a catalog for this fundraiser.  Online ordering is also an option and is perfect for out of town family and friends.  Please remember students should not go door to door alone.  Help us reach our goal of $2500.00 in sales.  Money is due by November 13th.  We appreciate your support in this endeavor.


There have been a lot of illnesses going around. We want students at school every day EXCEPT when they are sick! Please make sure we have good phone numbers to be able to reach you if your child gets sick and needs to be sent home. The Health Office can keep students for a short time until someone can take them home, but not for an extended time. It is up to you to make emergency plans in case your child is sick and cannot stay at school. In general, students should not return to school until there is no fever or vomiting for 24 hours.
