MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL:
Learning is alive and well at DLA! When I observe in classrooms I see students raising their hands to answer questions, working in small groups, solving challenging math problems, reading interesting texts, and focusing on learning. We know that the shift to remote learning has been a challenge, but we are so grateful for our families’ support and our students’ efforts to engage in learning online. Students know their schedules, have learned the technology, and are enjoying seeing their classmates and teachers virtually. To achieve our school goals, we need your child to attend class, participate in class sessions, and submit assignments every day! Remind your child of the value of education, that it’s their job is to be an excellent student, and that if they work hard they will get smarter. We are looking forward to sharing your child’s progress at first quarter conferences on October 14-15. Your child’s teacher will contact you to schedule the 1on1 conference in person, virtual, or over the phone. Teachers will go over your child’s report card, assessment results, and core value ratings. You will leave the conference knowing what your child’s end of the year goal is and how to support your child’s progress at home. Our school goal is 90% attendance at conferences!
