Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! Our overarching theme for the district this year is: We are Family….Rooted in Scotsmen Pride! 

Our DCS Family consists of many key people; parents, students, Board of Education members, teachers, administrators, custodians, aides, support staff, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, community members, etc. We are all working together for a common goal – to provide our students with a safe learning environment and the education and support that they need to be productive citizens in the 21st century. Our world is changing so rapidly, that it is hard to even imagine what it will be like when our present Kindergartners cross the graduation stage in 2028! Regardless, we will do our best to keep up with the times and it will take all of us, working together, to make it happen! 

This year, we are encouraging our students and staff to cross the line, step out of the box, and take risks as learners and instructors. We are working hard to foster a culture of inquiry, self-determination, and student driven learning. Our teachers have had, and will continue to have, extensive professional development in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and are bringing their new strategies and ideas to all classrooms. These are exciting times, and our DCS family has accepted the challenges that lie before us. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas that you might have to make our school the best possible place to learn and grow. Your input is valued and appreciated!

Best Regards,
Laurie Hopkins-Halbert
Elementary Principal

Your weather just got better.
