Four DLA Students win College Promise Scholarship!!

Our College Promise winners left to right are:  Daveauntae Cotton, Monet Allen, Carston Hardwick and Amari Harris

Four eighth graders at Dayton Leadership Academies are among the 53 students in Montgomery County who have been awarded the College Promise Scholarship!
Monet Allen, Daveauntae Cotton, Carston Hardwick and Amari Harris received news this weekend that they had been selected. The College Promise Scholarship provides a mentor during high school and the opportunity to attend such schools as Wright State, Central State, University of Dayton, Miami University and others for little or no cost to scholarship families.
These four students join Jazzmyn Sumlin (DLA Class of 2014) as College Promise Scholarship recipients.


Spring is (FINALLLY) Here!!!

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 of May.

Here are some important reminders:

Family survey—Hopefully, 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!!
