Welcome Back Parents, Teachers, and Students!

We hope everyone had a great time at Meet the Teacher last week and had a great first day of school! As we embark on a new school year, please check back early and often to our website for the latest Desert Cove Elementary School news!

And remember the following important dates for next week:

  • Tuesday the 19th: Curriculum Night at 5 an 5:30
  • Friday the 22nd: Student Picture Day

Real soon, look for information on School Cents, our Shopping Programs, and Business Sponsorships. Without the fundraising of the PTO, many of the awesome things our kids love about school wouldn’t be possible. And many of our fundraising techniques require you to just go about your regular routine…like food shopping!
