Dear Parents and Guardians,

On April 11, 2012, Indiana passed the statute named Erin's Law. This law uses educational resources to help educate students about personal safety.

As a result of this state mandate, Dayton Elementary School will be teaching safety awareness in a sensitive and developmentally age-appropriate manner. This March and April, Miss Bacon will be meeting with each class to do the TSC-required body safety lesson. The lesson will teach students how to recognize when they feel uncomfortable, how to respond to uncomfortable situations, and how to identify a trusted person. The lesson is 30-40 minutes long and will consist of a book and a short discussion or a video and short discussion. It is important each student participates in this safety lesson.

If you have any questions please contact Lisa Bacon at



Mrs. Wolf and Mrs. Howard have both received funding from Donors Choose for their classroom projects. Mrs. Wolf will be doing a "Music to our ears" project, and Mrs. Howard is doing "Learning through Music" project. Way to go!

Reading Chain

Ms. Miller and Mrs. Clute's 3rd grade classes have read over 500 books since the first day of school! That is Amazing! They got to parade through the school with their reading chain to show off their Huge accomplishment! Way to go super readers!
