DLA is #1....
As you may
have heard, DLA received the #1 ranking among all 38 schools in Dayton for
student growth in 2015! Help us share this wonderful news to families who may
want to consider DLA for their children.
DLA is hosting an Open House on Thursday, April 14 from 4:00-6:00pm so invite a family or two to attend. We are increasing our kindergarten and first grade enrollment and filling available seats in grades 2-8 so please help us spread the word!!
Here are some important reminders for April:
Registration for the 2016-17 school year—THANKS to the many families who have completed the re-registration forms for 2016-17. To all other current DLA families, please be sure to complete your registration materials as soon as possible in order to SAVE YOUR SEAT!!
State testing—As you are likely aware, state testing for grades 3-8 will begin April 6 and run through the month of April. Please review the testing dates in this newsletter and on our website. Be sure your children get plenty of rest on the nights before testing.
Family survey—Hopefully, you had a chance to complete this DLA family satisfaction survey that was sent home to you or you did so last week at conferences. If you did not, please 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 2016—Please register your child for our Monday-Friday program that will run from June 6 through July 1. 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…
It is a
great time to be MIGHTY PROUD about what our students and staff have
accomplished at DLA! Dr. Wallace
