Welcome Back!


Hey Phantoms,

I hope you all had a fantastic summer and welcome to the 2014-2015 school year.  My name is Amanda and I’ll be your DASH Dispatch editor this year. Judging by this past week we have an amazing year ahead of us, and I will be constantly updating to let you all know what’s happening on upcoming dates. There are some big days coming up, and some things you need to remember.  So don’t forget that there is no school on September 1st for Labor Day and to bring your smile on September 5th for Picture Day. Well, that’s all for now, but stay tuned for more information and exciting news!
