School's Out for Summer ... And So Are Our Newsletters
Are you ready to jet-set, lay low and stay local, or just stop and breathe? We're one day away from summer fun and that means your regularly scheduled newsletters are taking a little vacay, too. You won't receive Team DPS Weekly every Thursday or Our DPS Weekly every Friday, but Communications will send all-team updates on an as-needed basis. To kick off summer break, we've packed this final Team DPS Weekly with summer discounts for DPS educators. Check them out below! 

As we gear up for next year, we want to hear from you to make sure we're making the most of our newsletters. Take this quick, four-question survey to tell us what you think about Team DPS Weekly and how we can make it even better for you. One lucky participant will win a DPS prize pack! 

Questions? Email us at newsletters@dpsk12.org. Have an excellent and refreshing summer!
