Hello to DLA families,
It is hard to believe it is already October and that we have completed six weeks of school!
First Quarter Mandatory Student-led Teacher/Family conferences
The most important news for October is to remind you that our first quarter student-led teacher/family conferences will be held on Thursday, Oct. 22 from 4:00pm-7:00pm and Friday, Oct. 23 between 9:00am- 2:00pm. There is no school on Friday, Oct. 23.
· In person conferences are MANDATORY for every DLA student and their family.
· Students receive an out of uniform pass for attending. Students MUST be present at conferences.
· Students will present their first quarter grades, their academic goals for the year and their behavior report.
· On Thursday evening October 22, we will have representatives from various community organizations in the Atrium for our families to learn about their services. We will also have representatives from area high schools for our JA students and families to meet.
Wednesday and Saturday Tutoring
This year our Wednesday tutoring program will be by invitation. We will focus on the students who need the most extra work. If your child is being required to attend each Wednesday, DLA will mail you a letter of invitation in early October.
We will hold a Saturday tutoring session as well for the invited students once per month in October, November, December, January, February and March. Further information will be included in the letter of invitation to be sent home in early October.
Thanks to all DLA Families for enrolling your child/children at DLA! We look forward to seeing EVERYONE at our first quarter conferences.
