DMC Families,
I would like to thank you for your support and patience with me as I am navigating my
new schedule without my Assistant Principal. Your patience has been amazing in regards to
student discipline, responding to emails, and meeting with parents! I am very grateful for
the community in which I work. A huge thank you to all my parents who have been helping
with the lunchroom duties and crosswalk duties!
