From our Community
All Staff Whew!!! Made it through that mess of a week last week. What doesn't break us, makes us stronger - and we are only getting stronger! So very grateful to all Dealey staff and the community for putting all of the students first and keeping them safe. Looking forward to moving together in the future. Go Dealey!!Eason Family
Ms. Winners personally checked on me several days after she saw that I had a difficult time feeling harassed by the protestors while I was picking up my daughters last week. She continually embodies the principle that it doesn't cost anything to be kind to someone. I am so thankful my daughters have a role model like her at school.Lauren Waldrop
Ms. Bell has helped my daughter become more independent in completing her work, regulating her emotions, and managing tricky social situations this year. In our parent-teacher conference, she gave me concrete ways I can help my daughter academically. She is outstanding: a model of patience, kindness, and love of learning/reading for my daughter. How lucky we are that she is at Dealey!Lauren Waldrop
Ms. Lavat I'm not sure I can fully capture how thankful I am for Ms. Lavat: she is a constant model of steadiness and love of learning for my daughter. Her classroom is an environment where my daughter feels safe, loved, and gently challenged to be a better friend and student. She recognizes my daughter's passions and encourages her to pursue them. She inspires my daughter to keep going in the face of challenges. We love you, Ms. Lavat!Lauren Waldrop
Mrs. Matere, Ms. Winners & Nurse Dunlap I am grateful my son is supported, loved, and encouraged from different disciplines at school. Thank you to these three for making the extra effort – it makes a difference!Rachel Tubbs
