Dear Team DPS,
This week marked the official kick off of the 2021-22 school year, and it was so energizing to see our scholars and their families fill our campuses with joy, optimism (and of course a few first-day jitters) once again. The buzz of excitement was palpable, especially at Garden Place Academy, where I joined in the fun with students, parents, teachers and support staff before the first bell of the new year.
Below are some more photos of the first few days back to school, and be sure to watch this welcome back video in English or Spanish.

Thank you to all of our team members who worked hard to get our schools ready for a year of learning and who gave such a warm welcome to our scholars. I look forward to the school year ahead and all the possibilities it holds for our students.
