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 Dell City School and Dell Valley communities came together Friday, May 28, at Cougar Field, to celebrate the Class of 2021 – Tristan Smetak, valedictorian, and Vanessa Galvan, salutatorian. It was a lovely evening – the Dell Valley and Hudspeth County communities are so proud of Tristan and Vanessa, and we wish them the best in the next stage of their lives!
Congratulations to Tristan Smetak, of the Dell City High School Class of 2021! Tristan joined the Dell City School, and the Hudspeth County community, in 2018, as a sophomore – but in his years here, he's become a rural West Texan through-and-through.
Homeland Security officials recently announced that the threat of targeted violence is schools is “elevated,” in part because of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and associated shutdowns. Learn more about risk factors, and how to be an “engaged bystander,” here.
Congratulations to Vanessa Galvan, of the Dell City High School Class of 2021! Vanessa became a Cougar at the beginning of her junior year – and Dell City High has been exactly the right place at the right time in her life. Vanessa said the school and the community have provided the perfect environment for her to discover herself, and to come “out of her shell” – and into her own.
Congratulations to our Cougar track and tennis athletes, who've wrapped up their seasons of spring sports! And a special tip of the hat to two Dell City ninth-graders – Iris Ayala and Reyes Espinoza – who qualified for the area track meet in Buena Vista, and did great in that event Wednesday (April 14).
A college education can be a gateway to opportunity. But it can also be costly, and the transition to college can be a challenge. In our dual-credit program, Dell City High students can earn college credits, learn what will be expected of them in the college context and develop the skills to succeed there – all free of charge.
Paloma Medina – a native Dell Citian who joined Dell City ISD in October 2020 – fills multiple roles at the school, working with students from pre-K to high school. And with Cougar students of all ages, she's found work that's both challenging, and nourishing.
Having fallen under the spell of the Valley's peace and beauty, Rudy Bustamante moved to Dell City just six weeks ago – to become the school district's new maintenance staffer. But as a man who doesn't know how to sit still, and one with a plentiful supply of practical know-how earned through work and life, he started making a contribution here from the day he arrived.
