Spring is (FINALLLY)
It is hard to believe that we are down to our final two
months of the school year. There is a lot to accomplish between now and the end
Here are some important reminders:
you had a chance to complete this family satisfaction survey about DLA at
conferences. If you did not, please complete the survey on-line via our website
or ask your child’s teacher or the Main Office to send a copy home to you. Our
Board, Admin and Staff really want to hear from you so that we can continue to
improve the DLA experience for you and your children.
Summer Launch 2015—Please
register your child for our five week Mon-Fri program for this summer. It is a
great mix of academic focus and group projects and some interaction with
community resources in art, science and others. If you didn’t register your
children, please make sure you work through your child’s teacher to get the
information and form to complete. Teaching and learning, transportation and
meals are all provided at no cost to you….Our Summer Launch is VERY UNIQUE
because all the teachers are from the DLA staff…
Registration for the 2015-16
school year—THANKS to the many families who have completed the
re-registration forms for 2015-16. To all other current DLA families, please be
sure to complete your registration materials as soon as possible in order to
SAVE YOUR SEAT!!
If you know of students who would like to join us at DLA
next year, we are accepting applications for new students for seats that are
available. Mrs. Ewing and Mr. Wright handle our enrollment process so ask for
them when you are in the building or by calling DLA.
Final round of State
testing—As you are likely aware, there are more state tests this year than
in recent years. The final round of testing will occur in April and May. Please
review the testing dates in this newsletter and on our website. Our attendance
for testing in March was excellent. Some students however had clearly not
gotten enough rest on the nights before testing. Please help them be at their
best by enforcing an early “Lights Out” on nights before testing!!
Many more exciting things are happening at DLA in April and
May and are listed and described in this newsletter. Have a great Spring Break
and we look forward to seeing all of our DLA Eagles on Tuesday, April 7!!
