Principal's Post

6.2 - Transition back to live instruction....CHECK! PSSAs.....CHECK! Summer break...right around the corner! It is so hard to believe that this year is coming to a close. We are truly looking forward to celebrating our students and all of their hard work this year. Keep an eye out for any grade-level events planned for the last few days of school!

6.11 - Summer is here! The past 15 months have been tumultuous...but we made it. Thank you all for your continued support. Don't forget to check out our final Mindful Mustangs page below - we honored over 220 students! You can even watch the silly string reward they earned. Eleven cans of silly string makes quite the mess.

Summer Resources

Our Literacy Team put together some awesome resources for all grade levels to utilize over the summer. Your child will still have access to IXL, RAZ Kids and other apps until early August! Don't forget to take some time to sharpen those academic skills over the summer!

DASD Learning On-Demand are activities by grade level. There is a theme for each week and a digital choice board with clickable links to different activities in Math, ELA, and some fun activities as well. There are videos embedded on the first slides to outline all directions for our Mustang families!

Mustangs Create! - SM Art Show

Check out our virtual art show with over 1,000 works of art created by our talented students! Most of the artwork was a result of an art lesson with Mrs. Beaver, but students were also invited to upload a work of art created outside of school.
