Wee Deliver is open for business!

On Monday, October 24th, the Duncan Chapel mail system opened for business.  The third grade is responsible for running the "Wee Deliver" post office. Mrs. Thompson will supervise the mail workers. Mail will be picked up, sorted, and delivered two times a week.

Through this “in house” mail system, students practice writing and other standards as they write and respond to letters.  Teachers can send cards or letters to fellow teachers or students!

     PARENTS - you are encouraged to get involved by writing to your child.  You can find out your child’s school address in 3 different ways:  an address book will be located in the front office, the addresses will be posted on the school’s website (look for the link on the Parent’s Page), and every teacher will be sharing their classroom address with you through their newsletter.

A mailbox will be placed outside the office in the main lobby for you to deposit mail. Also, there are mailboxes posted on various hallways that may be used.

     Please remember to address the letter correctly, including return address.  NO REAL STAMPS necessary!  You may use a sticker or drawing in place of the stamp. Your envelope would look something like the sample here.

 Thank you for supporting this fun, learning activity!

No Outside Food or Drinks

The Duncan Chapel cafeteria is just like any other restaurant and we request that food items from McDonalds, Wendy’s, Pete’s, etc., not be brought to our “restaurant”.  We encourage you to participate in our school lunch program.  Due to increased security, parents are asked to say good-by to their child in the cafeteria and not follow the class to the classroom or playground.  Thank you!!
