Diamondback News

Dear Diamondback Family,

I hope this Wednesday finds you well. 

We have had a fantastic start to our year, here at Dessau Middle School. Recently we received our campus accountability rating  and Dessau Middle School Met Standard. Also, we maintained a 100 percent Pass Rate for the Algebra I EOC. We are working to build upon the momentum created, for our 2018-19 school year.

We hosted Diamondback Camp for the first three days of school this year, and we received lots of positive feedback from our students. They loved the team building opportunities that were presented to them by our staff. We are in our second full day of students transitioning to their classes, and we are extremely proud of the PRO behaviors the students are modeling in the classrooms and hallways.

As a reminder, Dessau Middle School will host an open house tomorrow evening beginning with a welcome at 6:20 p.m. in the gym. Parents will be able to transition to all of their student’s classes and meet all of their teachers. 

I have attached a copy of our Open House schedule for your convenience. We will also have tables set up for some of our clubs and organizations. There will also be a table for you to sign up for our PTO, and join our teachers, as we create the best opportunities for our students. A+FCU will also have a table set up with membership benefits, and will briefly speak during our time in the Gym. 

We will have spirit shirts, sold by our parent organization, available to be purchased for $10 each. Shirt sales will take place before and after the Open House. Attached is a link to preview the shirts. 

As we begin a new school year, we also begin our fall sports season. I have attached schedules for both our football and Volleyball teams. Please support our students, as they play district competition. 

Some other exciting news with Dessau Middle School is that we won a $10,000 grant from the Pflugerville Education Foundation to fund our new Outdoor Learning Space. This space will include a large greenhouse, seating area, and materials for students to build planter boxes and grow their own plants. This new space will be utilized by students in all grade levels.

I hope you have a great evening.

Sincerely,

Jeremy LeJeune
