Dutch Neck Event Updates
Thank you to everyone who made the International Carnival a great success. Special thanks to the kids and the families who signed up for the country posters, teaching us about the different countries around the world, as well as provide cultural games and crafts for more than 200 kids. Thank you to Toy Edwards, Liberty Martial Arts, High School North student Helen Zhu, Maria Moran (Windsor Athletic Club-USAWAC), and Dutch Neck parent Meena Venkat for sharing their energy and teaching the kids cool dances. The evening ended with an awesome parade of ethic clothing from different continents all over the world. Lastly, thank you to our CUSTODIANS, administration, and to all or our Dutch Neck families who have continued to show their support in every event. We hope all who came had a fun night and we hope to see you at our next event!

Thanks! My son just started Dutch neck kindergarten yesterday and would love to join! Just wondering, what time would the meeting finish? Thanks!

Thanks to Dexter’s Emporium Planning Committee’s hard work and to our many volunteers, the event went smoothly and our store was almost empty!

Our annual Dexter’s Emporium is happening this Saturday from 10AM to 2PM at Dutch Neck!! Get in the holiday mood and enjoy warm apple cider as your kids shop independently for the people on their list without breaking the bank! Everything is just a dollar. Tis also a season of giving and the kids have the chance to make cards for patients at Capital Health and donate gifts! While you wait, as a family you can also enjoy creating Haiku together. All the Haikus will be displayed on the wall for all to enjoy.

Dutch Neck had a very busy week last week! It was American Education Week where parents had the opportunity to go into their child’s classroom to observe what goes on in the classroom, all grade levels collected food donations in partnership with a local charity organization, we also had our book fair for the whole week, and Dinner with the Principals took place on Thursday night. We are thankful for the opportunity to go visit the classroom(s), for our wonderful volunteers that helped with either the book fair or Dinner with the Principals, and those of you who supported our school with your book fair purchases! Many enjoyed and complimented the food catered by Convenient Catering, grooved to the fun music played by Mr. Kovatch, and of course hung out with our Super Principals and Super Dexter! ...

Great job PTA! Was fun!
If you passed by Dutch Neck School in the last week, you would have noticed the flags and banner we had outside. November 11th, was Veteran’s Day. It is a day to honor our men and women and families who are veterans and active in service. Dutch Neck School and PTA is proud to show our support for their efforts and sacrifices. A giant thank you to Andria Bilotto Wirth and David Wirth, David is also a veteran, for taking the initiative these years to make this happen. ... See MoreSee Less
