Teacher Appreciation - 2024 Edition

Last week, DLS celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week!

To the teachers at the Dual Language School - thank you for your endless energy, dedication and support of our children. Your influence on our children cannot be underestimated. The community you create within your classrooms and across the school provide a sense of connection and have helped build Dual Language into the school it is today.

Thanks to our generous families and community contributions, teachers and staff had something to look forward to on a daily basis, including a staff bathroom refresh!
