Greetings DTPA family! This school year is off to a wonderful start! We are so excited to be starting a new year. Our goal at Desert Trails Preparatory Academy has always been to promote academic achievement. In addition, we strive to provide students with opportunities for personal growth and prepare them for a bright and successful future.
To our families returning, thank you for choosing DTPA as the place to educate your children. To our new families, welcome! We hope that you are all settled in for a great school year. Each day brings with it the promise of new knowledge, wisdom, and growth. I am looking forward to many days of learning ahead!!
We would like to thank all of the DTPA families for understanding and helping us ensure the safety of every scholar. It is our top priority to keep every scholar safe; therefore, it is important that parents and guardians use their placards to pick up their child. Placards have been issued to each scholar and additional ones may be purchased in the office for $2.00.
Please remember to bring your placard every day. You may also take a picture of your placard and show it from your phone as well. Your child’s first and last name with their grade level should be written on the placard. You may write multiple names on one placard.
Again, thank you for helping us make Desert Trails Preparatory Academy a safe place for all scholars.
Even if you haven’t been involved in the past, it’s never too late to start. All you have to do is see Ms. Crystal in the office for a volunteer form. Once you have returned the form, and have been approved, you can coordinate the days and times with your child’s teacher and begin volunteering!!!
Scholars and teachers have been working very hard since the first day of school. During the week of September 4 – 6 you will have an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss, in detail, how your child is doing academically. At this conference the teacher will go over their Progress Report and provide you with a copy. Each teacher will be sending home a letter to schedule these conferences, so keep an eye on your child’s backpack.
