Welcome DeLong Blazing Dragon Families!


August 2018

I hope you are enjoying the last few days of what has been a wonderful summer. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. 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 of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a plethora of extracurricular clubs and activities.

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff are already planning and preparing for the upcoming year. I also hope that all Dragons are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. One of the great things about DeLong is that we are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!  Your active participation is key to the success of your child during his/her elementary school years. I encourage all parents to play an active role in the education journey of your child.

Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at DeLong.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings at DeLong.

Again, we welcome you to our wonderful learning community . . . a place alive with tons of energy . . . enthusiasm . . . and a high standard of excellence!  It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  I look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.  Please stop by and say hello. Together, we will create the most optimal learning experience for all.

Mr. Konishi
