Are they doing the school Christmas shop for the kids to do their Holiday shopping before the break?
‘Tis The Season, to deck the halls! In this case, we’re decorating the school’s halls. And Drayton Hall Elementary School Kaleidoscope is doing just that! Here’s a photo of their cafeteria bulletin board. 🎄❄️

So I heard that there was not going to be any school resource officers at Drayton this year. This makes me really nervous. Is there a reason our children won’t have one available at the school?
I received the information today to download the First View to my electronic device. To me, it wasn't the most user friendly. You will need to contact the school for the school bus code to complete the information.
School supply sales are beginning. Is there a list posted yet for this fall? I wasn't able to locate it, if so. Thanks!

VA parents: I was unable to log into Canvas. I found it on the CCSD portal, but couldn't log in - any suggestions? I was prompted to log into Google, so I used my son's email for this - but all it did was spin.
Hey, DHES, do we have the update/rosters yet? Thanks!!

I’m glad nobody played “Hook-ey” today because Stingrays hockey players came to read us a few stories. They definitely “broke the ice” by showing off some of their equipment! 🏒
It was super “chill”
