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.
March 29 marked the year anniversary of the passing of DPS Trooper Mike Schulze, but the connection between “Mountain Mike” and the Dell City School, and the Dell City community, continues to deepen. The signs can be seen around our Valley.
The Dell City School will host a very special event tomorrow – when Cougar Field is dedicated and formally renamed Trooper Michael “Mike” Schulze Football Field. The dedication ceremony begins at 5 p.m. (Mountain time), and all are invited to attend.
The Dell City ISD school board when it meets tonight will honor DPS Trooper Mike Schulze. Ideally, a law officer puts community before self – there's no doubt that Mike fulfills that ideal. Mike was recently diagnosed with cancer – a diagnosis he's determined to beat – and the school is joining others from across the region in recognizing and supporting him. Based at Pine Springs since 2004, Mike has put his love for this place and its people into practice every day.
Congratulations to Trever Czubinski and Peggy Beltrán, Dell City ISD's Teachers of the Year for 2020-2021! Czubinski, Dell City's secondary English teacher, and Beltrán, the school's third- and fourth-grade teacher, will join other standout educators from El Paso and Hudspeth counties in the running for regional and state Teacher of the Year.
Earlier this year, seventh graders Nicole Martos and Rhiannon Muise set out to answer some questions about an important Dell City School building: the Grace Grebing Library. Who was Grace Grebing? What had she done, and why was the library named for her? They answer those questions in this special contribution to our school news coverage.
The Hudspeth County Junior Livestock Show is one of the high points of the year in our communities – a gathering and a celebration – and the tradition endured in 2021, Jan. 28-31, albeit in smaller, pandemic-era form. And our Dell Valley youth made a great showing.
Debbie Guillen, Dell City ISD's PEIMS coordinator and registrar, has been a full-time district employee since 2017. But she began substitute teaching here 15 years earlier, and always had her sights on a full-time position. This Dell City native loves her job – which puts her natural computer skills to good use – and she says that working at the school she herself attended, alongside coworkers who were once classmates, is deeply satisfying.
A Dell City High grad, Adriana Sanchez joined the district in 2015, and quickly found a place at the heart of the day-to-day life of the school. She's a central presence in the school's front office, and as executive administrative assistant, she's a vital aide to the superintendent. She's embraced large responsibilities, and plays a critical role in making our school run smoothly.
