Message From Mrs. Sanchez

Good Evening DRES Family,

We kick off our biggest fundraiser of the year tomorrow, The APEX REMIX! The students will watch a kick-off video in the morning and then meet the APEX team throughout the day. Check out the 22-23 theme here and see more about what your children will be learning over the next 2 weeks while raising money.: https://vimeo.com/729292037 We are raising funds for Technology and Security Enhancements, Campus Beautification, Teacher Appreciation, Continued Advocacy to DRES Families and more! You can go online at https://myapexevent.com to learn more. Tomorrow your child will bring home their Access Code so you can get their pledge page started!

Be sure to check in with your children daily over the next 2 weeks to see what they are learning from the APEX Leadership Team.

You can view previous 22-23 newsletters here: https://www.wcpss.net/domain/20157

Have a good evening,

Mrs. Sanchez, Principal

Morning Arrival

Reminder that morning arrival starts at 8:00am.

Students should not be dropped off out front of the school until 8:00am. We do not have staff on duty out front until 8:00am.

Please wait in the carpool line to drop your children off rather than parking and walking them across the carpool lane. Carpool gets started right at 8:00am and moves quickly in the morning.
