Principal's Message

 
Welcome to Dacusville Elementary School!

On behalf of our faculty and staff at Dacusville Elementary School, we welcome you and your child to a new school year! We are excited about the 2019-2020 school year and all the opportunities we have in store for our students and their families! Our teachers, support staff, and administration are committed to working with our students, parents, and greater community to raise the bar in all areas of education and continue on this journey toward excellence. We are dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing, and rigorous learning environment that prepares ALL students to be successful beyond the classroom. This year we are rallying around our theme, “Geared for Greatness!” and focusing on the 5Gs: Gratitude, Growth Mindset, Goals, Grit, and Greatness. Our goal is to create a positive school-wide culture where students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We strongly believe in the power of community and we encourage you to join us, become invested, and actively support this vision by supporting your child, ensuring they are at school each day, serving as a mentor for other children, volunteering at events, attending PTO meetings or parent conferences, or any other way you can show your support for the children and teachers of Dacusville. Together we are One Team with the Same Dream, to open doors of opportunity for our children and leave this community better than we found it! If you post anything positive about your child and/or DES to social media, please use the #ADolphinWin or #DES5G and help us spread the word and celebrate the successes! Thank you for your support and if I can ever be of any assistance please do not hesitate to contact me via email at travischapman@pickens.k12.sc.us or by phone at 864-397-2800.

Serving with a purpose,

Travis A. Chapman
Principal
