Happy holidays...

Whether you celebrate the holidays or celebrate having two weeks off, we all hope you enjoy the time. It's been a busy year and staff and students have been working really hard! I hope you have the opportunity to rest, enjoy the family, and take a break from the daily routine. It's been a challenging year but I am grateful for all of you and the staff at Desert Cove. We are so fortunate!

May your days be merry and bright!

Thank you Grimaldi's

I would like to thank Grimaldi's for sponsoring our holiday lunch this year. I am grateful for community partnerships that support educators and schools. It made such a difference to be able to provide a delicious meal before we engaged in holiday activities.

Thank you PSI World too...

I would also like to thank PSIWorld for a holiday donation that was made to Desert Cove for every student. They will receive them Friday. I can't tell you what it is yet because that would ruin the surprise but OMG! So fun!

Holiday Support

Our community has a lot of needs this year, and we are still accepting gift cards in the amount of $25 from Walmart or Target. Please drop them off at the office or with Nurse Stephanie
