We have a dedicated team of teachers, para-professionals, and support staff who are waiting to share their excitement for learning with your child to make sure he or she has the best learning experience possible. Join us in visiting our school, volunteering, and chatting with administrators, teachers and staff to help us deliver the instruction your child deserves. Parents and friends of DCISD are always welcome to come by to see learning in action. This year promises to be one of focus and achievement. We invite parents, guardians, community members, and friends of DCISD to become active participants on our dedicated team increasing learning opportunities for everyone in our school community.
The results have come in for the elementary and junior-high academic UIL competitions held earlier this month, and our Dell City students made an impressive showing. Cougar students in grades three through eight traveled to Van Horn Jan. 10 for the competition, and they placed in a range of events.
Dell City ISD has received a “clean opinion” – a seal of approval for its bookkeeping and financial oversight – from the district's independent auditor. School board members reviewed the audit at their Jan. 16 meeting.
The Dell City ISD school board will soon have a new member. Timothy McCray was appointed at the Jan. 16 school board meeting, and he will be sworn in, and join the other trustees, at the board's February meeting. Thank you, Mr. McCray, for serving this community, and volunteering for this difficult and important job!
Congratulations to our coed junior-high basketball team for their fantastic run last week, including a second-place finish at a tournament at Immanuel Christian in El Paso!
The Dell City School hosts its annual Christmas Program next Wednesday, Dec. 18 in Cougar Gym – it's always a heart-warming event, and all community members are invited to attend. The Christmas Program is only one of many school events planned in the coming days, in the lead up to the holidays and the school's winter break.
Congratulations to four Cougar student-athletes – Hunter Wilson, Kassandra Acosta, Maxine Burford and Emilia Velarde – who were recently selected as “all-district” volleyball players. All-district selection honors top competitors, and these Dell City seniors, who played under coaches Chuck Wilson and Trever Czubinski, earned the recognition.
The Cougar community came together Wednesday, Nov. 6, to recognize student academic and classroom achievement, at the second Six-Weeks Awards Ceremony.
Karen Torres – who joined Dell City ISD this year as the school's pre-K and kinder teacher – brings almost 25 years of experience to her work here. And while her career has been diverse – she's worked with ESL and special-education students, in Head Start, elementary and junior-high classrooms – her Dell City job is definitely a new chapter, with new opportunities for growth.
Oscar Guerrero, Dell City ISD's new special-education teacher, has had a variety of roles in his five years as an educator – from teaching science and math in rural communities to administering testing and federal programs at a large El Paso charter school. But in working with Dell City's special-education students, he's finding a particular satisfaction.
