Happy Monday!  The weather is getting colder, but things are heating up here at Durham.  Please make sure you mark your calendars for the following days:

Tuesday is Halloween.  Students can participate in a Relay for Life Fundraiser by dressing up in a school appropriate costume and donating a dollar.  Please remember: no mask or hats!

The Thanks for Giving Food Drive begins is Nov. 1st -14th.  Please donate if you can!

Wednesday is Chick Fil A and Friday is FROYO Friday.(Yum!!)

Morning tutoring labs begins NOVEMBER 6th.  ELA will meet on Tuesday and Math will meet on Thursday.  The sessions are from 8:15 till 8:50.

October 16 – October 20

Tomorrow is Fro-yo Friday!  Don’t forget, it is also the last day of Red Ribbon Week.  Wear neon because “the future is too bright for drugs!”

Tomorrow is Thursday!  That means “Peace out to drugs!”  Remember to wear your favorite tye-dyed clothing!


Remember, it’s Red Ribbon Week.  Today students wore their favorite sports jerseys.  Tomorrow is hat day.  This is also Conference Week.  Students are dismissed at 1:30.

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Fall Break.  I enjoyed time with my family in Memphis.  Conference Week is coming up soon – October 16 – 20.  Today, students received pre-conference letters.  Please indicate on the letter if you want a face-to-face conference or a telephone conference.  You also have the opportunity to indicate that a conference is not necessary at this time.  Please return the letters by Friday, October 6th.
