Words from Mr. Simmons...


Happy Friday, everyone! Thank you to everyone who attended the Donuts for Dads!  We had a great turnout and loved seeing all of the people at DES.  We do not have school on November 21st-23rd for Thanksgiving Break.  We hope you all have a great holiday with your family and friends.


We are also so appreciative to you all for sending in names of your family and friends that are veterans!  As you can see from the information below, we have a display in the front entryway to honor our veterans.


Have a great weekend!



- Mr. Simmons, Principal
