DANA JUNE MENU 2016-17.pdf 


May 21, 2017


Dear Dana Families and Friends:


First off, I would like to send a very special thank you to our wonderful PTA for their support and hard work on last week’s Incoming 6thGrade Mixer.  Felicia Villarreal did an amazing job organizing the event and the support from our parent community truly made the event special.  It was also great to see members from all of Wiseburn Unified School District’s PTAs and WEF who were on hand to help support the Mixer.  The students had a great time!  Thank you all! 


This week includes our signature Student Led Conferences.  For our 7th and 8th grade parents, I know you share my excitement and enthusiasm for the event.  For our 6th grade parents, you are in for a special and rewarding treat where you will be able to share time with your child and see the work he/she has completed this year.  I am certain you will leave in high spirits after the event.  Our awesome Dana PTA will be out in force again as they provide a small reception area for our families.  Please pay close attention to the special schedule(s) we have this coming week (see below).
