Message from the Principal

July 20, 2022


Dear DES Families,

Ready or not, here we go!  It's that time of year again where we turn our attention to starting school soon... very soon!  July is the only month of the year where the school is missing students, so there really isn't much time off from the end of one year to the beginning of the next.  Parents, we will really need your help as we ask you to complete registration online from August 1st - 12th.  Packets are being sent in the mail this week with all the info and instructions you'll need to complete registration.  If you know of any new families to our school, please tell them to go to school in person.


Our TK-3 Elementary Open House will be Thursday, August 18th from 2 to 6 PM.  Bring your child and all those school supplies!  We look forward to seeing so many of you that day.  The first day of school will be Tuesday, August 23rd for grades TK-12th.  Preschool Open House will be on Friday, August 26th from 4 to 6 PM in our Mini Monarch Preschool.  The first day for PK will be on Monday, August 29th.


So many things to remember!  If you need any assistance with the regisration process or school in general, please call our office between 8 to 4 PM, Monday through Friday.
