Dealey Dragon Update
Message from the Principal
I can't believe we are almost finished with the first semester. Our Winter Break will be here before we know it.
The next couple of weeks will be extremely busy here at Dealey as we prepare for the end of the semester. We have many after school programs and events. Please see the calendar below and do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions about event times, dates, or details.
We will end the semester by taking our district ACP exams. I have include our tentative testing schedule as well. These exams will give us data to use as we plan for the second semester and work to cover all of the skills needed for students to be prepared for the next grade level. We will keep you posted about our overall school results.
Finally, I am pleased to announce that we have filled our orchestra vacancy! Mrs. Kiira Russell has joined our staff as the orchestra teacher here at Dealey. She holds a degree in Music Education from Oberlin Conservatory and has been teaching music in many different capacities for the past 10 years. We are thrilled to have her working with our students.
Thanks again for all of your support this first semester!
Welcome, Kiira Russell! Dealey's New Orchestra Teacher!
