January's News!

January 3, 2017


Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break. It is amazing that half of the school year is already behind us. We are starting the New Year with much to celebrate. Please congratulate Mrs. Cora Stokes for being nominated Teacher of the Year and Mrs. Angelica Cardenas for being nominated Employee of the Year. Both of these ladies are well deserving of this recognition.

This month there are several important dates to remember.


January 6 – Character Awards at New Horizons @ 9:00 am in the cafeteria

January 12 – Boosters Meeting at DECC @ 5:00 pm in the cafeteria

January 16 – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday (No School)

January 31– Second Quarter Progress Reports go home with students

January 16-27- Progress Monitoring (VPK Assessment - AP2 for all VPK students)


As we move into the second semester please remember to continue to stay in contact with your child’s teacher. A sustained relationship between home and school allows students to thrive in their educational environment.  


Best Regards,


Phyllis Clemons
