Dear DES Families,

At Denison Elementary, we have a dedicated staff that enjoys working together to provide the best for our students. Our district and schools are recognized for being innovative and student centered in many important areas. Through the diversity of our people's talents and school resources, we can provide your child with a special and unique educational experience that will best prepare them for an ever-changing world.

Each teacher has unique strengths and teaching styles that can benefit our children.  These factors can come into play when placing students into classrooms for next year.  Parent input can be used to understand what children need to be successful in school.  Your input will be considered when making placements.  Please do not request specific teachers by name, as these individuals will not be considered. If you child is in the Dual Language program, you do not need to provide any info as their teachers are set for next year.


If you are providing input, please complete the following Google Form by July 15, 2024:

Parent Input for 2024-25 School Year (ENGLISH)

Dejarles saber a los Padres 2024-25 Ano Ecolar (ESPANOL)


Thank you for entrusting us to serve you and your children during this school year. Through words and actions - our school, students, and community have truly lived our school motto: “Be responsible, do your best, and help the rest!”




Christopher Schulz

Denison Elementary Principal
