Welcome Back!

I am looking forward to another great school year both at DuVall and Long. My schedule has me at DuVall on Tuesday,Thursday, Friday and at Long on Monday and Tuesday.

Upcoming events include the Bob Cipriano Run on October 11th (more info. to come) which means our 4th and 5th graders will be out on the track training over the next 6 weeks.

Each grade level will be focusing on the instep kick at appropriate grade level standards. Grades 4 and 5 will be training for the 13 minute timed run test while grades k-3 will concentrate on galloping.

If you have any question feel free to contact me through email or voice call.

Field Day 2019

Field Day was a huge success made possible by all of our wonderful parent volunteers and the PTO. Although the day was a little damp the kids had a great time at the park. From the Golf Ball Relay to the Sponge Relays our students were smiling and having a ton of fun. Thanks again to the parents,PTO, Mr.Attee, teachers, and the DuVall students for making Field Day fantastic.

Grades 3-5 will participate from 9:30-11. All parent volunteers should arrive around 9:10 to choose a station to run.

Grades K-2 will participate from 1:30-2:45. All parent volunteers should arrive around 1:10 to choose a station to run.

Thanks for volunteering and making this day a success, Mr.Tapp

Mini Martian Marathon Update

Great News, Both Long and DuVall numbers have taken off! Over the next 4 weeks our teams should be out preparing themselves to make the final 1.2 miles on race day. Between now and April 13th our martians should dedicate time to strengthen cardi-respiratory fitness by getting out and jogging building their endurance. A parent letter will come home the week of the race to provide all details needed for the race. Mr.Tapp
