Welcome from mr. Kier...

As we end our first week of school, I want to thank our students, parents, and staff for a wonderful start.  Our students have come back excited and ready to learn.  Our parents have been gracious and supportive, and our staff is just amazing!  We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning through the arts.  To our new families, “Welcome to DSA!  We are glad you chose us.”

Open House

Open House is scheduled for two days, September 8 and September 10 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Students with last name starting with A through L are invited to attend on Tuesday, September 8th. Students whose last name begins with M through Z will attend on Thursday, September 10th. There are some exceptions where some teachers are only able to be here one night because of conflicts. In that case, siblings of that student may also attend on the one night the teacher is present. Check with your student's home room teacher to find out if they are an exception to the alphabetical listing noted above.

Middle School students and their families will meet first in their homeroom (first period class) rather than the cafeteria as in previous years. A note went out to all middle school students this week.
