Looking Ahead to the 2021-22 School Year

Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s),


As I transition into the role of Principal at DeSana Middle School, I would like to take a moment to thank Principal North for her leadership and unwavering commitment to the students, staff, parents, and community of DeSana Middle School. Principal North has truly been an inspirational leader, and I wish her nothing but the best in her retirement after more than forty-two years of service in education. Please take a moment to visit one of our social media platforms and thank Principal North. Please use the hashtag #ThanksTerriNorth.


As we conclude the 2020-2021 school year, please take a moment to look over the information below. I hope both you and your children have a wonderful summer break. We cannot wait to see you again next school year. WE are DESANA!
