    May is School Board Appreciation Month. We appreciate all it does on an ongoing basis; however, we wanted to take this opportunity to especially thank DCSD’s School Board for the groundbreaking work begun this year.

    Fourth Graders Dance to “Everything is Awesome!”

    Mrs. Child and her nimble fourth graders performed to “Everything is Awesome!” during our Friday Finale.  A few weeks ago, Washington and Garfield students learned a dance from the Creative Arts Academy 6th graders to The Lego Movie song.  The lyric “Everything is awesome when you’re part of a TEAM” perfectly illustrates several of the lifeskills we have here at school.   Enjoy the video!
