Principal's Message

 Dear Parents and Families of Dacusville Dolphins:

I hope this post finds you enjoying time with your family and friends and taking some much-deserved vacation time to unwind and relax. Summer may be winding down, but things here at DES are just heating up! I can’t believe how fast time is flying and with images of school supply shopping flooding Facebook and Instagram I can’t help but get excited about the upcoming school year! Last year was my first year at Dacusville Elementary and it was such a blessing and an honor to be a part of this wonderful school and community as we “Blast Off to a Stellar Future!” Thank you all for your support last year with Mrs. Tharpe and I sharing leadership responsibilities for DES, and I appreciate your continued support as I transition to the Principal role and we add and move members of our team for this year. We are anxiously awaiting the start of this new season of success with incredible optimism and positivity. We have spent a lot of time and continue to spend time planning together with our faculty, parents, and community members to provide our students with the safest, engaging, challenging, and supportive learning environment possible. Our team is committed to helping each child reach their full potential as we strive daily to achieve excellence. We invite you to partner with us as we rally together to make this year the best yet! You can help us share and celebrate all events, accomplishments, and achievements of the 2018-2019 school year using the hashtag #ADolphinWin. We are “One Team, Same Dream!” See you at Meet the Teacher Night, Thursday, August 16th  from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m.
