Double Peak School Friday Wrap-Up (5/1)

Double Peak School Friday Wrap-Up (5/1)

General Information

Intra-District Transfers – The SMUSD’s Student Services department and DPS have spent the last three weeks working on intra-district transfers.  There has been an increased complexity to the puzzle with over 600 transfer requests and DPS opening at 3 different sites.  Over the next two weeks, Student Services will be processing transfers (approvals and denials) and mailing them home.  Thank you for you patience.

GATE and Honors Classes – DPS will have both GATE and honors classes.  Students may be assessed for GATE in third grade, with the program starting in fourth grade (district-wide standard).  For sixth grade, the amount of honors classes depends on the amount of students who qualify.

PTO Meeting – The next PTO meeting is scheduled for May 7th at 5:30 p.m. at the SMUSD District Office.  All PTO meetings are open to the public.  Hope to see you there.

K-6 Opening – DPS will officially open as a K-6 for the 2015-2016 school year and transition to a K-8 over the next two years.

Construction

As of last Monday, all of the walls are vertical.  You can now start to see the design of the campus.  The large open space to the west will be the play fields and one of the parking lots.
