Due to inclement weather moving in, all after school activities are cancelled for today, Friday Feb. 15th. We hate to do that but will work to find another time to recognize our senior winter extracurricular participants.

School is ON tomorrow in DS but there is a strong chance inclement weather such as ice and snow may move in around noon or shortly after. If this happens we MAY have to release from school early. We just want families to be aware and prepared should this happen.

Today has been a great one as our business and community leader focus group just met for some super information sharing and discussion AND we got a new large bus we’re getting ready to roll soon. Check out the pics of both below. New bus 2020 is awesome!

Woohoo! Such an overwhelming amount of support for our Crush 4 UR Crush fundraiser. Almost 250 sold! Our 6th and 7th graders spent the afternoon unboxing and organizing the sodas and will be delivering them tomorrow during the parties.

A few minutes ago I had the opportunity with a few colleagues to listen to our Young Leaders In Action Team do a mock presentation regarding their smoke and vape free campus proposal. They continue to revise with super points. They are an awesome group.

We have reading going on galore this morning in the elementary school. Ms. Cunningham’s class was hard at it... reading mastery at its best.

The DS community lost a true legend and friend this weekend as Dr. Herbert Chaney passed. He was a former local Dr., School Board Chairman, and fellow Rotarian among many other positive things. I am always grateful of his friendship, wit and wisdom. He will be missed by many.

Those familiar with our schools are familiar with Andy Hall. He is our band director & music teacher and he’s a phenom here. He was recently named the music educator of the year for the 2nd district! We appreciate you Mr Hall, you’re awesome and we thank you for all you do!
