Summer Reading Program
All students received a summer reading list (bookmark) with their final report card. Students will read books from the suggested reading lists, then circle those titles on their bookmarks. Students and parents will sign the back of the bookmark. Students may return the signed bokomark list to their new teacher in August. Student who accomplish the summer goal will be recognized on DCTV morning news, receive a reading certificate, and will be awarded a coupon to a local restaurant!

Rising Kindergarteners and First Graders: 10 books (read to or with the student)
Rising Second and Third Graders: 5 books

Rising Sixth Graders will contact their middle school for guidelines. Most are published on their school websites.

Join PTA Today!!
The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help our school! Membership dues are $5 per person. You can send in your money in an envelope marked "PTA membership". Thank you for supporting the Duncan Chapel PTA! Joining the PTA does not obligate you to volunteer at school or attend PTA meetings - although we hope you will do both!
