HOME AND SCHOOL CLUB
Home and School Club (HSC) is a vital organization on the Del Mar Elementary School campus. The HSC group is made up of parents and school staff members who are dedicated to working together to bring enrichment and school experiences to our students.
A variety of activities are planned through out the year to bring families together with the school. For example, the back-to-school picnic kicks off the year for an informal time to enjoy a pot luck dinner and get to know each other. Other activities during the year include book fairs, gift-back night, walk-a-thon, drive for schools, and of course the annual garden festival. Fund raisers conducted during the year go directly back into the school to supplement the school’s programs. The ball wall, computers for the classroom, and the Imagination Playground are only a few of the many projects funded by the HSC thanks to your help.
The summer months will soon be over and you will be preparing your students to return to school. Please take some time this summer to read with your kids. Take them to the library or enroll them in a summer reading program. Encouraging your child to read will bridge the gap between the end of school and the start of the next year. Of course, brushing up on math during the summer can be fun and not even seem like work. Cooking, drawing, contests with number facts are but a few of the things that will keep your child sharp for the coming year.
As you are gearing up the 2016-2017 school year, make a plan to become more actively involved in school. Your child’s classroom is a great place to start. Get to know your teacher and learn about what your child is learning. You’ll be surprised how much better your child will do in school with you involved. Please don’t be hesitant to help out with school events. We need all the volunteers we can get to make the school year positive and fun. The Home and School Club looks forward to your involvement and are eager to meet you.
