Welcome to the Website for DeSana Middle School
Home of the Dragons!
Welcome to a new school year at DeSana Middle School! With a projected enrollment this year of nearly 1000 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students filling our hallways and classrooms, we are truly excited about Year 4 at DeSana and the countless possibilities and opportunities that it holds! We look forward to working with the finest group of students around - - - our young Dragons . . . our fantastic, committed and involved parents . . . and an incredibly supportive business community!
Our highly talented, caring, and extremely enthusiastic teachers and support staff are eager to engage our students in quality, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, along with providing some fun, enriching and special times through many extracurricular activities, clubs, performing musical groups, and athletic teams and events. Working together, we are quite confident that we will provide a top-notch education for our young Dragons!
Throughout this year at DeSana, we will continue to build upon the solid foundation we have established thus far . . . one that is built on the cornerstone of excellence in education. Our mission each day? Simply put:
Collaborate . . . Create . . . Innovate . . . Persevere . . . Inspire!
So to that end, our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities --- both inside and outside of the classroom --- for high caliber learning, continual growth, leadership skills development, community service, and achievement at a high level of excellence! We pledge that this will be our focus daily, and we invite and encourage our parents to work in partnership with us to optimize the opportunities in all five facets of our DeSana program - - - Academics (first & foremost always!), The Arts, Athletics, Activities, and Altruistic Endeavors.
We look forward to a very positive and productive year together! And we extend a special, yearlong invitation to our parents to join us at any and all school activities and events whenever you can. We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education! For it is key to the success of your young Dragon during his/her middle school years.
Please also know that we value highly home/school communication at DeSana. It is vital and always plays an integral role in each student’s success. Please do not hesitate to contact us if/when the need arises. We will do likewise. We want and encourage our parents to stay in the know about their child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.
To help begin this 2019 - 2020 school year in very fine fashion, we encourage you to take a look at not only the important information in the packet you received at Dragon Camp or Open House but also the information we have posted here on our DeSana website. This information is for your reading pleasure and will explain more about the different facets of our program here at DeSana. It, too, is very important information.
Again, we welcome you to DeSana Middle School as we continue to grow and broaden the opportunities for our young Dragons! We look forward to working together with every member of our DeSana Family in building upon what we have established these past three years . . . creating a most wonderful school where our young Dragons’ imaginations, ingenuity and passion for learning continue to grow every single day!
