February Newsletter 

I hope your 2019 is off to a great start. February is now upon us and our teachers, support staff and scholars are changing gears. While continuing to teach your scholar their current grade-level curriculum, they are also being introduced to next year’s concepts. Scholars are also preparing to take their state assessments and teachers are focusing in on key concepts and tasks to help our scholars be the best they can be. In the process, teachers are encouraging more independence and responsibility. These skills are important to help scholars feel confident and show improvement and growth in the work they do. While we do still have 4 more months of school, they will go by very quickly. Please help us at home to ensure your child’s success. All of your support in your child’s education is not only appreciated but critical to their overall performance. Engage with your child’s teacher often and let your child know you are there for them. We here at DTPA thank you for all that you do.

Coming Fundraising Activities

Fundraising funds our field trips. This year we are working hard to provide our scholars with fun and exciting learning experiences outside of the classrooms. But without the funds, this can be hard to do. Therefore, DTPA provides a number of fundraising opportunities throughout the school year to raise money to support the cost of admission and bus expenses. We still have a few more chances to reach our fundraising goals.

                  **Spring Candy & Popcorn Fundraiser Kick-off – February 6th 
                  **Annual Jog-a-Thon: March 22nd

We thank you for supporting the scholars of DTPA. In May, our scholars will be attending various field trips. In order to chaperone for these field trips, you must contact the classroom teacher and your name will be placed in a lottery. If you are selected, you will need to be sure that you have completed the background check in the office with Ms. Crystal. If you have not done so, you will lose your spot and another parent will be selected. So please, if you are interested in participating on field trips, get your background cleared as soon as possible.

    The Desert Trails Preparatory Academy cheer team are victorious again!  This year’s cheer team ranged from 3rd to 6th graders who realized that cheer is a fun, but serious sport. Our girls learned quickly that cheer is not easy. With the help of Ms. Jazmyn, Ms. Angel, and Mrs. Vance, the girls practiced their sharp, rhythmic movements twice a week, no matter the weather. As competition day approached, the girls did not falter in their confidence and on March 17, 2018 they proved what their coaches already knew and performed their little hearts out. They were on sharp with their movements, in sync with each other, and hit all of their stunts. The girls gave full effort to get the win. Desert Trails was the ONLY elementary school competing against six other experienced dance/cheer teams and All-Star teams. So, when the SHARP officials called Desert Trails Preparatory Academy as SHARP Champions we knew we slayed the performance! Desert Trails Preparatory Academy Cheer team is a team of mighty stars shining extremely bright. Fear our bows!
