Dealey Dragon Update

August 22, 2021

Message from the Principal

Dear Excellent Dragon Families,

I hope you had a fantastic first week. There was so much joy in our building with all of our students back on campus. Please take a look at the photos below to get a very small glimpse at the magic that was happening in our classrooms this week!

I also wanted to thank you for your patience and feedback as we manage reentry with a full building and Covid restrictions. Your help and flexibility at arrival and dismissal has been essential, and your children have done a great job following our safety protocols and procedures.

Have a great 2nd Week!

Dragons breathe fire!

Much love,

Ms. Wing
