We need you!
We also invite you to share ideas with how to support our goal of making Dessau Elementary a campus of excellence. Many of you signed our parent wall and and shared your personal commitments. That was a great way to start our year together. Now we move even further down the road.
If you need help registering on-line, have some ideas you want to share or just want to volunteer please reach out to us. You are welcome to contact the following people to get started:
Carolyn Parker, Principal firstname.lastname@example.org
Yolanda Henry, Counselor email@example.com
Nereida Franco, Teacher (Speaks Spanish) firstname.lastname@example.org
You can email or call the main number 512-594-4600 and ask for one of us!
