Principal's Message

Dear Excellent Dealey Families,

This will be my last week at Dealey. I want to say that being the principal at Dealey has been an honor, and I am so grateful to each of you for sharing this journey with me. Every day I have learned from you, and I hope you have learned from me, too. I wish you all of the very best, and I am only a phone call or email away if there is anything you need.

Dragons breathe fire!

Much love,

Ms. Wing

Principal Profile Meeting

Dealey Faculty, Staff and Community Members,

Your input is invaluable in selecting a strong, new principal for Dealey Montessori. Each school has unique strengths, needs, and experiences. With this in mind, stakeholder input is always a critical first step in the principal selection process. Please click on the survey link below to provide input on the most important principal characteristics for Dealey Montessori and feedback related to the strengths and needs of the school.

The survey will close at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Please click the link below to access the survey.

We will also meet to discuss the data collected, provide stakeholders an opportunity to give more input concerning the principal profile, and ensure that everyone has an understanding of the next steps in the process. While participation in this meeting is optional, we hope that you will join us. Please note that we will reference the attached research summary in our principal profile creation dialogue.

Updates and Information

Parent Conferences

Parent Conferences will be the week of January 24th. Elementary teachers will share information on how to sign up for a virtual conference, and Middle School information will be shared through remind.

Vaccine Gift Cards for Students

High demand for gift cards and shipping delays during the holiday season, has created an unforeseen delay in distributing the vaccine incentive gift cards to students who have submitted their COVID vaccine documentation. We appreciate your patience as we work to expedite as much as possible. We anticipate that we will have these within the next 10 business days. A notification has been sent to parents also.
