Please join us in celebrating many great educators who are retiring from DC West this year. We will host a cake and punch reception in the Middle/High School Library, the invitation is included.

We have continued to support many families with their needs from the flooding. We have had so many organizations and other schools give gracious donations that we are able to pass along to our DC West families. If your family or someone you know has needs, please contact me personally as we want to assist as many people as possible.

The DC West Elementary Project is moving into the finishing stage. Despite the challenges with weather, the project is still on track to complete early August. We look forward to hosting open house and the first days of school in August. Many have asked if we will do a special open house of the school for the general public. The answer is yes, we will be making plans to organize an event!
