Message from the Principal

May 30, 2023


Dear Parents and Guardians,


We are down to our last few days of May, and I want to thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your children this school year.  It takes a village to raise a child, and we couldn't do our jobs without your support.  


Class lists for the 2023 - 2024 School Year will be finalized in July, after we finish our three weeks of Summer School and our School Calendar Year.  Before registration in August, the teacher for next year will send your child a letter.  Parents can check their Power School access to see the teacher assigned to their child(ren) at the end of July. 


From May 30th to June 30th, parents can complete the following form if they would like to provide input in regards to your child and his/her needs.  You can access the forms through the following links:


Parent Input Form (English)       Parent Input Form (Spanish)


Our goal at DES is to differentiate instruction to meet the learning needs of our students.  We believe the best way to accomplish this goal is to maintain a balance between classrooms and have a diverse group of students within each class.  Students are excellent teachers within the classroom setting and we want to maximize the growth of each by exposing them to diverse ideas, opinions, and learning styles.


Best wishes to you and your family as you spend time together this summer.  We look forward to continuing our work with you when your child returns to DES in August.



Christopher Schulz

Denison Elementary Principal
