Sneak-A-Peek & Stay and Play

August 29th
Alrighty… let’s get our Gators ready to go!

All students and their parents are invited to come and meet the teacher at the Sneak-A-Peek event on Thursday, August 29th, 2019 from 9-10 am at DES. Students can visit their classrooms, drop off their school supplies, and say “hello” to their new teacher. It’s only an hour, and the staff needs to get back to work so doors close at 10 a.m. sharp.

Stick around for a Stay & Play from 10-11:30 a.m. at the playground in the front of the school. The PTO will have volunteers with ice-pops to hand out to all! It’s a great chance to make a new friend and reach out to other parents and students in your classes.

Sneak-A-Peek: 9-10
Stay & Play: 10-11:30
