Dear Desert Mountain Families and Community Members,
We are looking forward to the start of the 2015-2016 school year! We are appreciative of your ongoing support and are excited for another successful year. As we prepare for the year we are working diligently to ensure that we foster an environment conducive to the highest level of learning.
Our focus this year is simple, collaboration. Through collaboration, we will continue to build on a culture of trust and excellence. Desert Mountain is a great environment, and we believe the goal of a truly collaborative culture will support all parts of the school, including staff, students, parents, and other stakeholders.
In order to assist our families with transition, please mark your calendars for Thursday, August 6th for Twilight Tours. The event will take place on campus from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Please begin in the gym. During this time students and families will meet their teachers and receive information for the upcoming school year.
We recognize the value and importance of parent/guardian participation in a child’s education and welcome your involvement. Please ensure we have your updated email and phone numbers so we can keep you personally updated with upcoming school events. Our talented web master will update our website regularly to keep our community members informed of upcoming school and district events. We thank you for your interest in our school and for supporting your child(ren), as we work together to educate and prepare our most precious assets.
Again I want to thank all of you for your support, and I look forward to seeing you during “Twilight Tours”.
