    • Congratulations to Hunter Lombardo. Hunter's artwork was chosen for D.B.O's "Save the Bees" t-shirt. The D.B.O. community was able to raise over $600 in t-shirt sales. All proceeds were donated to NJ Audubon.

    • BUDDY BENCH - The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. If a student is lonely or does not have someone to play with they can sit on the bench. If another student sees someone sitting on the bench they have been asked to imagine how that person feels and see if they want to play/join in. Thank you to the DBO PTA for this generous donation and helping us to foster inclusion and kindness here at DBO.

Principal's Message

  • Mr. M and Buzzy Dear DBO Family,

     It is hard to believe Winter is over and Spring is finally here! With Spring we see transformations in nature but also in our students. Our students are now taking the knowledge they have gained all year and applying it in new and challenging ways as we begin to prepare them for the coming school year.

     Our Character focus for the month of April is Communication. As always, we can use your help as we try and reinforce students listening, asking for help in an appropriate way, greeting people, and speaking clearly.

     Please pay close attention to the website calendar and PTA buzz sent weekly so you can stay informed about school and community events such as our Talent Show which is sure to be a hit! 

     Thank you, as always,

     Your Principal,

     Chris Marangon
