As hard as it is to believe the “100th” day of the school year has come and gone! This annual celebration is always special at McIlvaine, in all of our elementary schools and with our seniors! If it seems that this year’s celebration seems to have come especially early, it has since we currently have had no weather related closings or delays. Now while I understand that our students are waiting in eager anticipation for that phone call that lets them sleep in, let me tell you about the wonderful things that have taken place in the last few months! Through the support of the Harry K Foundation and the Delaware Food Bank of Delaware, Charlton and Allen Frear opened a food pantry for those families in need. We celebrated the Chinese New Year with our students at McIlvaine, Frear and Simpson. By the way it’s the Year of the “Rat.” Although we prefer saying “Year of the Mouse”! Fifer held a career fair and Brown had a cultural festival. The principal of Star Hill braved the elements to read to her students from the roof. While the high school celebrated seniors signing their college letters of intent and put on an outstanding production of “Charlotte’s Web.” And to think that I didn’t mention our winter sports, band and chorus performances, community/business breakfasts, Veteran’s Day celebrations, Districtwide Black History Month celebration and of course Stokes Elementary school’s famous Math and Potatoes Program! Wow – just think of the great things that will happen the rest of the year! I can’t wait – maybe we’ll even have a snow day!
Dear Caesar Rodney Family,
The Caesar Rodney School District is committed to preventing the spread of the flu in our schools and local community. The CR School Nurses partnered with Safeway Pharmacist, Kobus, to provide flu clinics for the faculty and staff at each of our schools and at the District Office. Over 300 employees in the Caesar Rodney School District have already been vaccinated against the flu this school year! Look for the CR Flu Fighter Ribbons attached to the name tags of district employees.
We encourage you and your family to join us in the fight against the flu by getting your flu shot today!
