Dear Dames Ferry Dragons,

     Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I hope you have enjoyed your summer break and you are excited about starting back to school.  We are “Celebrating 20 Years of Magic”.  The magic will begin each day at 7:55 a.m. with our tardy bell. 

     There are a couple of changes to our morning drop-off procedures.  Students may be dropped off beginning at 7:15 a.m. on the loop by the gym.  Students will not enter the building through the front of the gym in the mornings.  The drop-off loop is the only authorized and supervised place to let students out of the vehicle.  Dismissal will begin at 2:40 p.m. each day. Please remember that parents must have the school issued pick-up card to enter the gym for pick-ups and to use the drive-thru line.  These cards will be given out at Open House. 

     Open House will be August 3, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The first day of school will be August 4, 2017.  Classrooms will open at 7:30 a.m. on the first day of school because we know that you are excited.  If you arrive before that time, you may wait in the gym.       

     We invite parents and community stakeholders to visit our school and become involved.  We take pride in our tradition of educational excellence.  Please mark your calendar for Friday, August 11, 2017, at 7:30 a.m. for Coffee and Conversation with our administrative team.
