Greetings CALA Parents & Families!

Thank you very much parents for coming out to support our students' work at the Duncanville ISD art show.

We will finalize TELPAS state assessment this week and spend the next few weeks building skills in reading, science, math, and social studies.

We look forward to resuming our house assemblies this week!

Be on the look out for invitations to show faculty and staff appreciation as well as invitations to some of our end of year events.

Please see below for all other updates.

Thank you in advance for your support and sending your child to school each day prepared to excel in academics and behavior!

Thank you for sending your child to school with their own mask each day. We have seen an improvement in this practice. We are still following a temporary mask mandate. Remind your children to wear their mask properly throughout the day. Thank you very much in advance for your support.

Attendance Matters

It matters to have your child in school everyday, on time for the entire school day. Truancy and compulsory attendance count against students who are habitually absent and could affect promotion. Perfect attendance means students are here on time, everyday, and remain in school through dismissal. Our district will also be recognizing students who met targeted attendance goals for the 1st semester.

Family Math Night & Title 1 Night Friday, April 15th 6 - 7:30 p.m.
