3rd graders in guided reading have been learning about the difference between poetry, prose, and drama in guided reading. Kids were practicing determining the difference of each by "scooting" around, reading cards and deciding which card had which type of writing on the card.

Last spring while reading a book called Bren Bataclan Smile Artist by Mia Lewis, Briggs (now in 5th grade) had a few questions for the author so he wrote a letter to Mr. Bataclan. Mr. Bataclan is an artist that paints pictures and leaves them for people to find to make them smile. Mr. Bataclan replied by sending a painting. Can you guess what it was? It was a cow painting for Darien School. He definitely made someone smile with this painting.

Darien students got off to a great start of the school year today! It was so great to see all of the smiling faces (from both staff and students). Students got to know one another, the rules/expectations, and complete some challenges with their classmates.

The Best Communities for Music Education Award is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that recognizes and celebrates school districts and schools for their support and commitment to music education and efforts to assure access to music for all students as part of a well-rounded education. This year, the program celebrates its 22nd year of honoring schools and districts across the country. The Delavan-Darien School District community was selected based on an application submitted by Orchestra Teacher, Mrs. Jennifer Bayerl, which provided information about funding, staffing, commitment to standards and access to music instruction. Data was analyzed statistically and verified via a follow-up audit by researchers at The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas. The Delavan-Darien School District has received this award every year since 2014! We would like to thank all of our music educators and the community for supporting our musical education in the district.
