This Week In Dallas ISD (April 29 edition)

Teacher Appreciation Week

All of the work we do on a daily basis is in service of our students. However, one group of individuals is continually on the front line of support - our teachers. This week is a celebration and salute to all of our teachers. The good instruction, development of relationships and the time our teachers put-in inside and outside the school day is so very much appreciated! Thank you teachers for all you do and may your week be filled with appreciation.


Principal Shelton at Richard Lagow Elementary School was named Principals' Choice Award Winner earlier this year by her peers among Dallas ISD. She is also being recognized by Paul Quinn College and will receive the President's Award. Her leadership continues to serve as a light of hope for her students and staff. We are proud to have Principal Shelton in the Spruce feeder pattern.


As we move toward the close of the school year, there tend to be many deadlines and information shared. This week is no exception. Please take a few moments to read the WAIP items to see what applies to your campus.
