Mrs. May's and Mrs. Pal's fifth grade students recently completed a program titled "Imagine a Day Without Water" with the help of EJ Water. The students received prize bags from EJ Water for completing the project! What a great program and thank you EJ Water!
We are beginning to schedule screenings for incoming preschool and kindergarten students for the 2022-2023 school year. Our screenings will be held on March 10th and 11th. Please read the information on the flyer and call Sharon at the Dieterich Elementary office at 217-925-5248 if you would like to set an appointment!
A change was made to the Girls NTC/CIC Shootout at Altamont for tomorrow 1/15/22. Dieterich was originally suppose to play at 10:00am but will now play Vandalia at 11:30am. This will still be the first game of the shootout.
We apologize for the confusion but our new schedules and calendar have an incorrect time for the HS Boys basketball game tonight. The F/S and JV games with South Central at Dieterich start at 5:00. We have mistakenly told people calling in that it was a 6:00 start time since that is what was provided to the office. We apologize for any confusion. It is a 5:00 start time!
We have gotten several questions about the Varsity Boys Basketball schedules since there have been many changes since the original schedule was put out in August. The updated schedule can be found on our website under "Documents", "Sports Schedules", "High School Boys Basketball". A couple things to note: Since Odin now co-ops with Patoka, we are not playing them tonight. And since Oblong, Palestine and Hutsonville now co-op we will only play OPH at Oblong on 1/21, we will not play Palestine or Hutsonville separately so if you have a schedule where they are listed it is incorrect. (We picked up Paris and Effingham to fill those games.) Also, this Friday we play South Central. This will be F/S & JV games only, NO VARSITY.
There have been a couple of calendar changes regarding HS Girls Basketball. The game on January 10th at Windsor has changed to a 6:00 start time. The game on January 11th will now be played at Oblong instead of Palestine.

Parents, we are continuing to go outside for recess and will do so for as long as possible. Please send your students to school with a winter coat, a hat, and gloves. We have numerous students who are coming to school with just a sweatshirt. If you are missing their coat, please have your student check the lost and found. We have a large collection of coats in lost in found.
