Dealey Dragons,

November is dedicated to showing thanks and gratitude. I am grateful and humbled by the daily work habits and attitude of effort shown by our children, families, and staff. Our work habits, attitude, and effort are things we control. You win regardless of the outcome when you choose to have a positive attitude and give maximum effort to whatever challenges or difficult situations you encounter.

Thank you for the countless ways you all support our Dragons!

If a re-take is wanted, they need to bring back their proofs that was sent home on Sept 23rd. If they were absent- I have a list and will be coming around to get them.

Attendance Matters

Every school day counts in a child's academic life... A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. Our campus attendance went down to 93.9%

The highest percentage of attendance among the grade levels will have the opportunity to wear jeans with a Dealey or College shirt on Thursday. Congratulations 8th grade again with 98.2%! You may wear jeans this Thursday with a Dealey spirit or college shirt.
