Principal's Message

 Dear Parents and Families of Dacusville Dolphins:

We are beyond ecstatic about the exciting things taking place this year at DES! Our staff has prepared all summer and will continue to plan throughout the year to ensure that this is your child’s best year ever! We are dedicated to creating a safe, fun, supportive, and engaging learning environment for ALL of our students. The theme for this year is sports-related and we are rallying around the saying “One Team, Same Dream!” Our teachers, support staff, and administration are committed to working with our students, parents, and the greater community to raise the bar in all areas of education and continue on this journey toward excellence. The vision is that this school is and remains a source of pride for the community, a beacon of hope and opportunities for our students to grow and succeed and a place where great teachers come to work and never want to leave. 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, volunteering at events, supporting our DSO, or any other way to show your support for the children and teachers of Dacusville. If you post anything positive about your child and DES to social media, please use the #ADolphinWin and help us spread the word and celebrate the successes this year! Thank you for your support and if I can ever be of any assistance please do not hesitate to contact me via email at or by phone at 864-397-2800.
