Joining hearts across the district. Dalers of all ages throughout the district donned purple on Friday, February 9, 2024, to show their support for P.S. I Love You Day. This special day aims to shine a light on mental health and combat bullying. By introducing mental health education to students at an early age, discussions will become more open, enabling students to identify when they or others require assistance. Every second Friday of February, communities are urged to wear purple to promote kindness, create a welcoming atmosphere, and emphasize that mental health is as crucial as physical health.

The 100th day of the academic year is a significant milestone, indicating that students have progressed beyond the halfway point. It presents a valuable opportunity to showcase the knowledge and skills children have acquired since the commencement of the academic term.

To commemorate the 100th day of school, students at Dalers engage in various celebratory activities. Many students participate by dressing up in costumes to resemble elderly 100-year-olds, while others opt for celebratory parties or don specially crafted 100 Days of School shirts. Teachers often encourage students to compile lists of 100 favorite things, string together 100 beads, and partake in other engaging and enjoyable activities.

No matter the activity, celebrating this academic milestone is a big deal for kids.
