Dear Parents and Students,

Happy holidays from the DECC/New Horizons Staff! December is upon us and the hustle and bustle is beginning. Our students and staff did a wonderful job representing our schools at the Veterans Day Parade on Friday, November 11. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who came out to participate and honor our veterans.

We are still looking for parents to volunteer at our “Saturday Night Lights” fundraiser in February. If you are interested in helping please see your child’s teacher for more information.

Please remember during the winter months students still go outside for recess, weather permitting. The parent handbook outlines appropriate clothing for students. Please make sure you are familiar with these and feel free to call with any questions.

The nurse’s office is always in need of gently used clothing for students to use when they are needed. If you have any donations please send them to the attention of Nancy Ballard. Shirts and pants for both girls and boys would be appreciated.

Enjoy your time off with your family and I will look forward to seeing everyone in 2017!


Best Regards,

Mrs. Phyllis Clemons, Principal
