Welcome DeLong Blazing Dragon Families!


​September 2019

Welcome Back Blazing Dragons!

I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. We are eager to welcome your children back to DeLong Elementary School for an outstanding 2019-20 school year. We take great pride in creating an educational atmosphere where students can learn in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to engage in a lifelong love of learning. 

As we focus on student achievement we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. In our Grade Level Professional Learning Communities (PLC) teachers will regularly collaborate, analyze data, plan instruction that includes rigorous work in our classrooms and develop common assessments to ensure student achievement is attained throughout each grade level. During the upcoming school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. Ways to support and increase your child’s academic success include:

  • Make attendance a PRIORITY including limiting tardiness and absences
  • Check the DeLong website regularly to stay informed of school events
  • Communicate often with your child’s teacher
  • Review the school day with your child

I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children. This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!
