Dear DeKeyser Families,

Shannon HathcockIt is hard to believe that school is just around the corner!  I hope that you and your family have enjoyed a wonderful summer.  

The entire DeKeyser Staff is busy preparing for the start of the year, anxious to meet their new students.

Please be sure to read the DeKeyser News as it arrives each week as it is full of important information.  Here is a link to our current newsletter: DeKeyser News - Welcome Back

Please join us for our DOLPHIN DAY on Monday, August 29th from   3:30 - 4:30 PM.  This event will provide an opportunity for you and your child to tour the building, check out their classroom, and ease some of the beginning of the year school jitters. 

As always, thank you for all you do to help make DeKeyser the awesome school community that it is! Working together, we will continue to accomplish great things!

Mrs. Hathcock
