You may have noticed a couple of cameras this morning. District staff stopped by to help us celebrate the “first” first day of school for Des Moines Public Schools. Click on the headline to view the start of a great 2018-19 school year!
Welcome back for school year 2018-19! Students are in good spirits and excited to explore, meet new friends and learn. This year brings changes to our calendar. A reminder that we have an early out this first week — dismissing at 1:10 p.m. all three days. Thanks for everyone’s patience as we iron out the wrinkles that come with adjusting to our new schedule.
In addition to the school website, The Downtown School offers a Twitter feed @dtwnfalcons and access to schedules, event photos, meal menus, student data and more through the DMPS mobile app, available for iPhone and Android. School starts Aug. 8. Are you connected?
