Our DPS Weekly: High-Five for a New School Year!

Aug. 27, 2021
 

Dear DPS Community,

This week marked the official kick off of the 2021-22 school year, and it was so energizing to see our scholars and their families fill our campuses with joy, optimism (and of course a few first-day jitters) once again. The buzz of excitement was palpable, especially at Garden Place Academy, where I joined in the fun with students, parents, teachers and support staff before the first bell of the new year.

Below are some more photos of the first few days back to school, and be sure to watch this welcome back video.

Thank you to all of our team members who worked hard to get our schools ready for a year of learning and who gave such a warm welcome to our scholars. I look forward to the school year ahead and all the possibilities it holds for our students.

In collaboration,
Dr. Alex Marrero
Superintendent

¡Vengan esos cinco ante el nuevo año escolar!

Estimada comunidad de DPS:

Esta semana se vio marcada por el inicio oficial del año escolar 2021-22 y fue revitalizante ver a nuestros estudiantes y a sus familias llenar los campus con alegría y optimismo (y, cómo no, los nervios del primer día por parte de algunos) nuevamente. El bullicio de emoción era palpable, sobre todo en la Academia Garden Place, donde me divertí junto a los estudiantes, los padres, maestros y el personal de apoyo antes de que sonara el primer timbre del nuevo año.

A continuación, verán más fotos de los primeros días de regreso a clase; no se pierdan este video de bienvenida.

Gracias a todos los miembros de nuestro equipo que se esforzaron para que las escuelas estuvieran listas para un año de aprendizaje y a quienes dieron una cálida bienvenida a nuestros estudiantes. Estoy entusiasmado ante el año escolar que empieza y todas las posibilidades que presenta para nuestros estudiantes.

En colaboración.
