Principal's Message

Dear Del Rey Woods Families,
 
I write with much enthusiasm to welcome all our new and returning Dolphins to the 2018 - 2019 school year. I hope you had an adventure-filled summer vacation and are ready to return to DRW on August 8th.
 
 
The entire DRW staff has been busy during the summer months preparing extensively for the new school year.  You will notice that our office has a new look, courtesy of our amazing teachers and office supervisor who came in during their break to paint and organize the space. Mrs. Siemensma and Mrs. Ficarra provided small group reading and writing instruction in June. Ms. Fouser and Mrs. Synold conducted Kinder Camp for three days in July. The Instructional Leadership Team spent several hours reflecting and planning for this year. Our new and returning teachers had been sprucing up their rooms, happily anticipating the first day of school.
 
We are all very excited to begin the year and fulfill our commitment to academic, personal, and social excellence. We invite you to continue to partner with us in ensuring that our students are successful, safe, and happy at Del Rey Woods. 
 
As we begin the year, remember our MPUSD Way -   
 
Every person matters
Each day counts
Learn something new everyday
Improve with purpose
We’re better together!
 
To an amazing year,
 
Mrs. Lynn Ebora
Principal
