I would like to thank all of the parents and family members that attended our annual Harvest Festival.  This was a wonderful event for scholars, staff, and families.  The hard work that went into preparing for this event was well spent.  We raised close to $2,800 dollars. 😊

I would also like to thank all the families that donated to the Canned Food Drive.  These cans will be used to assemble food baskets.  The baskets will be given to DTPA families that may be in need of an extra blessing during this holiday season.

As we enter November, it is a great time to reflect and think about all of the things we are thankful for in our lives.  I would like to thank each of you.  It warms my heart that you are entrusting DTPA with the responsibility of educating your children. Thank You!

For the entire month of November, all classes will be doing their mid-year assessments.  This is an exciting time, as we get to see how much each scholar has learned so far this year.  Attendance is important during this month to ensure that scholars can do their best on all of their tests.  Please make sure your child is getting a good night sleep, eating in the morning, and getting to school on time.


Parent surveys have been distributed to each scholar through their classroom teacher.  This survey has been given in an effort to better serve our scholars, parents, and the community of Desert Trails Preparatory Academy.  Please take a moment to complete the brief survey and return it to your child’s teacher no later than Tuesday, November 14, 2017.  Only one survey is needed per family. Thank you for your time in helping us to support you better.
