Dear DSA Families,

Oh how we miss seeing your children EVERYDAY.  We are all looking forward to the day when we get to see and LOVE on them again. I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy. This is definitely a time where many of you may find yourselves a little anxious over the virtual format of schooling. Please know we are learning together and have nothing but patience and time to figure it out along with you. Take a deep breath and try not to stress over it. I promise we will get through this together and learning will continue to take place.  Below I will be sharing some needed information with you regarding continuing the love…., lessons and assignments, communication and connection and last but not least DSA’s office hours and happenings over the next few weeks.positive words to speak to students

Continuing the love….

Every morning here at school your child has LIFE spoken over them through the message in the picture on the right.  We tell them every day that we LOVE them as well.  I am assigning parents a task each day: please read the message to your child along with something you already do which is telling them you LOVE them. 

Lessons and Assignments

Your child will be receiving at least one lesson and assignment each week for each class or subject area for the two weeks of March 30th-April 3rd and April 6th-April 15th.  Students are asked to complete the assignments as teachers will need to grade at least 1 assignment each week.  Please communicate with your child’s teacher directly if you have questions and need specific direction with the lessons and assignments.  Assignments will be offered both virtually/electronically and paper based for any students who do not have internet capabilities. We have posted the digital platform that each teacher will be using on our website with other updated information. Click on the links below to view Elementary or Middle School teacher links. The arts are linked at the bottom of the Middle School page or in the dropdown menu at the top of each page.

Communication and Connection

Communication and connection with students, teachers and parents will be critical in your child’s learning process over the next few weeks.  Your child should be receiving direct communication from their child’s homeroom teacher at least one time each week as well as communication from their other teachers as needed or if students are struggling with the learning or the assignments.  We love our students and miss connecting with them. 

DSA’s office hours and happenings over the next few weeks
