Dragons of the Month
Congratulations to the following Dragons for being selected as this month's Dragons of the Month. These students were selected by their classmates for being HUMBLE in their classrooms. These Dragons received a DBES swag bag, popcorn, and attended a brief celebration ceremony where parents submitted videos to let their Dragon know how proud they are of their student. Congrats Dragons!
