DTPA NEWS

FEBRUARY MEMO

The second semester at DTPA is well underway.  We are heading into state testing season as our scholars will begin testing in April.  The scholars will be tested in grades 3rd  – 8th  in reading, math, and science (5th & 8th grade). The scholars have been working hard on developing best test taking strategies, gaining mastery of key concepts and practicing Common Core critical thinking skills.  We are sure our scholars will be prepared for their best performance on these tests. 

Parents, you too can support your child’s preparation for state testing. 

How can I help my child prepare for the test? You are an important part of your child’s education. Some things you can do to help your child are:

*Discuss the test with your child. Make sure they are not scared or anxious.
*Tell your child that you and their teacher have high expectations and that you are both there to help them every step of the way.
*Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.
*Review test results with your child and discuss with their teacher where they might need additional help.

GROUDBREAKING THANK YOU
DTPA CHEER TEAM
    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!
