Principal’s Report - November, 2021

Harvest Festival

DES hosted its first annual Harvest Festival on October 29, 2021. On this day students carved and decorated pumpkins, rotated through all the classrooms and ended the day with a parade. DES is incredibly thankful to the wonderful community members who donated pumpkins to our day. We had a total of 88 pumpkins donated from several different families. This allowed every single student to carve or decorate a pumpkin! Our local police officers were able to join us on this day as well. It was great for the students to see so many community members come to support their amazing growth!

Veterans Day

DES will be hosting a flag ceremony on November 10, 2021 to honor our veterans in the community. We have invited these members to join us for the ceremony. Our amazing music teacher Mrs. Kutkowski has been working with students to learn patriotic songs that we will sing as a school during the ceremony. We look forward to having these community members join us on the tenth.


As part of our goal this year, DES is re-establishing the motto of R.O.C.K.S. as its vision statement. During the month of November all students will be working on the letter “R” inside and outside of the classroom. Students are being challenged to show how responsible they can be. Teachers will be modeling responsible behavior as well as providing activities to promote responsibility in our school. When you first walk into our building there is a bulletin board dedicated towards our letter R. Pictures and notes will be posted throughout the month of November, showcasing students caught being responsible.
