Denton Dolphin News
September 5, 2021
Thank you to our DES Families!
Thank you for your continued support as students returned to the building this week. We did have a few hiccups but as a team, we are working on making each day better. With PreK beginning this week, we will continue to stay on schedule.
Technology is being distributed as device agreements are returned. If you have not returned your child's agreement, please get them in this week. If your child owes an obligation from the 2021 school year, please take care of that as soon as possible.
iReady testing begins this week. For these county placement assessments, students will need headphones. While we have some at school, some students perfer to use their own. Feel free to send in a pair of headphones with your child this week; it should not be a blue-tooth pair as these are not allowed with the program.
Thank you again for all your support and encouragement as we welcomed all our Dolphins to the buiding!

DES Parent/Teacher Association: Up and Running Again!
Dues are only $10 for the year. Funds are used to support classrooms, provide student incentives at the Book Fair, and many more things to make DES a special place to learn.
The PTA Officers have some great ideas for family events, so please plan to attend this meeting to give input. Thank you for your support!
This year, students are able to purchase snacks each day; choices include chips, cookies and gummy snacks. On Friday, ice cream is available for $1.00. Please use MySchoolBucks to put funds on your child's account if you will allow him/her to purchase snacks.
Breakfast continues in the classroom each day as before. Both breakfast and lunch are free again this year; however, we do ask that you still submit a Meal Benefit form as this impacts school funding.
