Last Chance for 6th Grade Dedications in the Yearbook

If you would like your 6th grader to have a dedication in the yearbook, please send is the information by Monday, Feb 14. We have extended this date so this is the last opportunity you will have. I have included an example of what I did for my son when he graduated from Desert Cove. You can add your information HERE.

Update Your Information/Student Pick Up

Please make sure your information is updated in Infinite Campus. If you've moved, changed phone numbers, emergency contacts, divorce, etc. It's important for us to have that information.


If you have to pick up your child(ren) for an appointment or personal at the end of the day, please make sure it's no later than 2:30PM. It will be much less chaotic for you and the office. We appreciate your assistance.
