Words from Mr. Simmons...


We had a great week at DES.  The students did a great job of trying to get in a normal schedule, even though we had some delays.  As we start to plan for the 2019-2020 school year, if you know that you are moving for the upcoming school year, please let the office know as soon as possible.  This will help us as we move forward with our planning.


We also really enjoyed our Indiana Pacers visit for Grades 1-3.  The students had a great time with the Pacers organization.  We hope that your student enjoyed this experience.


You will see below, but if you have an incoming Kindergarten student, please make sure that you contact the office.  Our Kindergarten registration will be on April 10th for all TSC schools. We look forward to welcoming our newest Bulldogs for the 2019-2020 school year.


We look forward to another great week.  Have a great weekend!


- Mr. Simmons, Principal

Read Like A Pro

The Indiana Pacers joined our Bulldogs on Thursday to read like a Pro! Students in 1st through 3rd grades got the chance to enjoy a special reading from the Pacer organization. Reading is very important in every day to day activity and we appreciate the Indiana Pacers for encouraging our bulldogs to read!
