Principal's Corner


Dear Friends,

Happy spring!  Our tenth year has flown by.  We have accomplished so much this year.  To see some of the things our students do each day, follow me on Twitter at @DFESPrincipal.  As the year winds down, I want to thank all in our community for their work and support.  


Yours in education,
Michelle Chang
