Principal's Corner


Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!  I look forward to the exciting learning and community activities we have planned for the remainder of this school year.  Some activities that we have coming up are our Pancake Breakfast and Used Book Sale, Upper Grade Overnight Field Trips, Student Council Spirit Days, Author's Day, and much more. 

Remember that school begins at 7:50 am and ends at 1:50 pm.  Be sure to use Stop, Drop and Go! to safely drop your children off to school each day. 

For a day to day look into what is happening at our AWESOME school, follow me on Twitter at @DFESPrincipal.


Yours in education,
Michelle Chang
