A Message from Mrs. Boortz, Principal

Hello Phoenix Family,

I hope you are enjoying the first few weeks of summer. This newsletter will update you on a few important back to school dates and other events happening at DTSOI.

We use this type of Smore Newsletter often, and I encourage you to add the sender address to your trusted email contacts. If you are not already, following our social media accounts is another great way to keep up with what is happening during the school year.

Our official account handles are:

  • Facebook: Don Tyson School of Innovation
  • Instagram: @dtsoi_phoenix
  • Twitter: @dtsoi_phoenix

I am excited to think about all of the exciting things to come this fall, but I hope you are able to rest and recharge during the summer break. We will have a great year, #PhoenixFam!

Kelly Boortz
