Oh What a week it has been!

Celebration!

You children worked SO hard on their DPS interims this week. I was so excited to see the growth they've made already this year! They truly worked so hard and were so focused!

Super Secret Project

You may have heard your student talk about our super secret project sometime this week. We were asked by the Teacher Leader Group I am in to make a DGS holiday music video/ song. We worked in secret to create a great MashUp. I will be debuting it to the staff later this afternoon. I'm working on a way to share it with all of you as it is hilarious! The kids wrote all the lyrics themselves AND came up with what each video clip should be like. It is a perfect reflection of their creativity!!
