Hello!


Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Google Classroom posts and to those of you that completed the MSU evaluation! It has been fun for all of us at DFS to hear from so many of you.

As a reminder, the MSU visit survey and the Welcome Back scavenger hunt survey are due October 13. You should have received links to these surveys via email. You will want to review the materials in Google Classroom while completing the surveys. *As a bonus, we will be drawing for a few Next Level Scholars Swag Bags to mail home to a few lucky students who complete the survey by the deadline!*

*Didn't get one of these surveys? Unsure of if you completed one and not the other? Contact me ASAP at mdangelo@drdfs.org or text (734) 354-7274*
