Dear DAA Middle School Families,
We have finished our first week of MAP in the area of math and the students are doing very well! We appreciate the perseverance and effort students have been putting forth. This is a great opportunity for students to show what they know! Our teachers will be using this data to help find areas of strengths and improvements with classes, small groups, and individuals to help every student realize their potential.

We are so excited to let you know that our students will be attending EXPO 2020 this year with the school! There are four different “journeys” that are available, and we have already booked three of them. I would like to give a big “Thank You” to Felipe Sanchez and Barbara Hoyng for their help in getting this once-in-a-lifetime event scheduled for each of our students!
As you are aware, students have been coming home with an iPad agreement for you to sign. The middle school is beginning the journey towards being an Apple Distinguished School, which not only means we will have iPads, but using that extra technology in order to enhance our learning. Our teachers earned their first “Apple Badge” during our professional development time this past Tuesday. Staff have recently been asked, with good reason, “why do students need two devices?” The graphic below outlines the pros and cons of each device and, through teacher training, we aim to help students master the device and when it is best to use each.

If you are still having technical troubles, please make sure to raise a ticket if the teacher is unable to help your child with a fix. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will help resolve the issue.
