Letter to parents March 11, 2022
03/11/2022
Hello DRA Parents and Guardians, We have an exciting and eventful month for our students and community! Today’s visit to Shadow Hills High School (SHHS) was an enormous success. Our 8th graders demonstrated their maturity and high school readiness by showing Accountability, Integrity and Respect. All students were ready with their correct clothing, wore their school lanyard and ID, followed directions, respected each other, staff and property. I am extremely proud of them, DRA leads the way! Friendly reminder, if your child is attending a HS other than SHHS, please visit their website for all transition information.
