It's hard to believe summer is coming to a close. Not quite yet for students but for teachers and staff, mid-August is the end of summer as they return to prepare their classrooms and ready themselves for students. I hope everyone has had a refreshing and relaxing summer, enjoyed the sun and did what most Minnesotans love to do....be on a lake!
As you've noticed, we have a new website! Please look around as there is an abundance of information shared within the pages. Our websites have always served us well and communicated the information families, students and staff need to know. With this new website, we hope to raise the bar another notch and give everyone yet another opportunity to see the great things happening in our buildings. We want to make sure everyone is aware of the excellent education students receive, the highlights of achievement, and the stories as they develop along the way. Please bookmark the site and check back often.
Not only do we have a new website but we've made several building improvements over the summer. The West Gym has a completely new look, the North Mezzanine was enlarged with the bleachers coming out and a new wall constructed, hallways were painted, some bathrooms were updated, DE's little gym was given a new look, and the list goes on. Thanks for the many crews and staff who have worked on these updates over the summer!
We're excited for the new year, the students to return and the opportunities ahead. Please join me in welcoming new faces as you see them in the halls. Both students and staff, on behalf of DC Schools...Welcome Back!
