Principal Update


Last week several staff members and I were able to attend the annual Mile High Student Scholars awards for DPS.  It was a great event where two of our students were highlighted for their outstanding efforts this year.  Congratulations to Grace McFarland in 3rd grade and Muqit Matin in 5th grade.  For more information on the Mile High Scholars click here.
