Dear Families,

Happy winter break! We hope you relax, slow down, and enjoy the winter break. Here are some fun family activities that you should consider. Students return to school on Wednesday, January 3rd at 7:45.  

First Friday, January 5

Please join us on Friday, January 5th from 7:45-8:45 for our First Friday Coffee and Conversation. We will have special guests from DPS’s Tranformational Social Emotional Learning (tSEL) team presenting. 

Attendance Update

Our attendance was up just a bit last week from 86.7% to 87.8%. First-graders had the best attendance at 90.48%. We are still striving for a 95% attendance rate. Hopefully, we will all return healthier after the break and our rate will be back into the 90% range.
