WE NEED INTERESTED PARENTS TO FILL TWO OPEN SEATS ON OUR COLLABORATIVE SCHOOL COMMITTEE (CSC)

The Collaborative School Committee, which includes faculty, parents and community representatives, works together to improve the education of the children at our school by providing “strategic direction in support of the school’s mission and vision, as outlined in the School Improvement Plan.” CSC meetings are held the 1st or 2nd Thursday of every month, from 4:00-5:30 p.m.

We are looking for parents who can bring new ideas and perspectives to the committee.  If you are interested, please contact Principal Burdette directly at Ken_Burdette@dpsk12.org.

GENTLY USED CLOTHES NEEDED

The office is in need of gently used girls/boys pants for students to borrow for unexpected spills or accidents (sizes 5 – 8+).  We do NOT need any shirts.  Thank you!
