    I am very grateful for the continuous participation of the parents in the District. There is a great amount of work that needs to be done going forward and I am proud to stand along side with the DPCC in doing so. Let’s continue to hold people accountable for the actions that they take regarding our children’s future. I will be keeping my children home from school on May 16th and will be an active participant going forward.
