FUN Day Info:
The three elementary principals have worked together to plan spring events for the students. FUN Day will happen for all students. Mr. Collins will be sharing a DL FUN Day with the grade's K-3 DL classes. Grade 4 DL students will be coming into DCS for FUN Day since it is their final year at DCS. We will not be having guests at FUN Day, but we will do some live streaming via Facebook and take many photos to share. The dates are as follows:
Elementary FUN Day Schedule
Grade's K and 1 - June 14
Grade 2 - June 15
Grade 3 - June 16
Grade 4 - June 17
Rain dates - June 18 or week of June 21
Grade Four will have promotions by class out side. Two guests per child will be able to attend. It is schedule for June 24th. The rain date is June 25. We coordinated with WMS so there are no conflicts with those that have a child in grade 8.
9:45 - Lacey
10:30 - Walker
11:15 - Cleary
1:00 - West
We are excited to bring back some sense of normalcy for the end of the year. This is all about the kids and the kids having fun! We appreciate the support.
We are 90% into the year! Our RIDE data shows that 6%(19 students - in person/distance) are chronically absent. We are currently in the 82th Percentile! The realistic goal is to have less than 5% chronically absent, but ultimately 0%. Chronically absent is defined as being out 10% of the days in school. This data impacts our STAR rating.
Please make sure you contact the main office if you change your contact information since returning the contact form or at any point you make a change.
We will be using #dcsanchors all over social media. Look for it on twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
Have a great weekend!
Mr. Morrone, Proud Principal of DCS!

SPIRIT Day will be back in the Fall!

Virtual Elementary Art Show
The link below leads to a BIG slideshow with a sampling of art lessons students have completed throughout this school year! All of these artworks are intermingling, from all three elementary schools in the district. Since we couldn't have a big show at the library this past winter, we wanted to show you how hard our young ones worked in a different way! We hope you enjoy the show!
