COMMUNITY UPDATE - NOVEMBER 2018
Executive Director's Message
Hello DPAC Families -- Our team just returned from two days of Professional Development in San Antonio, TX with more than 1,000 other Democracy Prep staff members. Our team is coming back to Las Vegas primed to close out the first Trimester of school strong. It has been exciting to watch scholars grow this fall. and I am eager to see our staff put their skills to work to help our scholars achieve their academic goals for the remainder of the year!
Scholar Section
Trimester Exams:
All scholars in grades 3-12 have exams at the end of the Trimester. Please prepare for your exams by reviewing notes, speaking to teachers about topics covered on exams, and most importantly taking care of yourselves -- eating properly and getting enough sleep.

Winter Sports:
November brings the start of our winter sports. Please be on the look out for tryout dates for our basketball teams. If you have questions, please talk to Coach Gipson for more information.
