This week let's ROW Like Vikings: Respect, Ownership & Wise Choices
Have a great week! Go Vikings!
During this first week of school at DES we've been hard at work teaching students the PBIS expectations for all areas of the building so they don't have to wonder.
Mrs. Love and Mr. Briggs taught lessons on the expectations in the cafeteria and on the playground while Mr. Cousino and Mrs. Raymer taught lessons on bus expectations. Mrs. Hawkins and Nurse Palmer taught students about bathroom expectations while classroom teachers taught hallway expectations.
Ask your student what they learned about being a Viking this week!

Lastly, if you haven't already connected with your student's teacher on Bloomz, please consider doing so. Bloomz is the main form of communication that teachers use to interact with families. If you aren't sure how to get connected, please contact your student's teacher or the office and we'd be happy to help!
