MLK Holiday & Assembly

Reminder: NO SCHOOL MONDAY, JAN 15 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. 

School resumes on Tuesday, Jan 16. There will be an in-school assembly for grades 4-12 on Tuesday morning from 8:30-9am to celebrate Dr. King.

Parents are welcome to join (standing room only). Students will present excerpts from the famous speech “I have a dream” and poetry, prose and songs around the theme of diversity and inclusiveness.  In closing we will all sing together: “We shall overcome.”


Dress Code Reminder

Please take the time periodically to clarify with your child what portion of his/her wardrobe is school appropriate. Questions can be directed to your child’s teacher or the administrative office.

Desert Marigold School recognizes that all students have intrinsic worth based on who they are and not on what they wear. We want to create an environment in which each student can develop those innate qualities, focus on learning, and contribute in a positive way to the school community. We also believe that pressures related to clothing choice can distract students and undermine the school environment. 

Reminder: Graphic shirts, leggings, unnatural hair color, half shirts, light up shoes are NOT permitted.

Please refer to the links below to review the dress codes from our student handbooks:

Dress Code for Early Childhood & Grade School (PreK-8)

Dress Code for High School (Grades 9-12)

Campus Improvements – Jan 2018

Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to improve our beautiful 12 acre campus. Over winter break many campus tasks were accomplished. The new Early Childhood Play Yard set was built and the Grade 5/6/7 building was repaired with a new metal roof that will last for years to come. Happy 2018!!

S’mores & Bonfire – Fri, Jan 26

Parent Council Events – S’mores and Bonfire
Friday, January 26th from 6:00-8:00pm

Join us to toast marshmallows and make s’mores! We’ll have a bonfire burning in the yard by the Farmhouse. So round up the kiddos, grab a blanket, your water bottle and head out to the campus to create some fun memories with fellow parents, students, teachers and staff. We can’t think of a better way to spend a chilly Friday evening!
And don’t forget your stick or skewer for roasting your marshmallows!!
