Principal's Message



    Del Dayo Dragon


    Welcome to Del Dayo Elementary School, home of the Dragons! At Del Dayo, we believe in nurturing a lifelong love of learning that inspires students to celebrate diversity and solve the problems of tomorrow. As a community, we work together to carry out and build on the traditions and values that have defined Del Dayo for so many years as a place for students to realize their full academic, intellectual, social, and emotional potential.


    At Del Dayo, we recognize that in order for students to reach their full potential they must receive support from both home and school. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children's success. As a school, we are committed to meet the individual needs of all students and maintain personal connections with all families. Our teachers are your best resource so we encourage you to connect and build strong partnerships with your child’s teacher.


    Family and community support provides the foundation that prepares students to succeed at school. We invite you to become active participants in our school community by joining our Parent Teacher Organization, School Site Council, and volunteering as classroom assistants, art docents, field trip coordinators, and lunch supervisors. At home, we ask for your support to make sure your child gets to school on time, attends school regularly, reads everyday, and is supported in pursuing and developing their passions.


    It is an honor and privilege to be the principal at Del Dayo Elementary School and serve my hometown community. It is both exciting and humbling to work with the most talented and experienced staff, the kindest students, and the hardest working families within our community. I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students.
