Damascus Elementary School
2012 Met 7 out of 7 State Indicators
Four Time National Waste Wise Recycling Award Recipient
It's hard to believe but it's that time of the year again, the beginning of a new school year. Parents are a vital and important part of a child’s education. Children receive the best education when you and our dedicated staff work as a team. It is parents’ enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best; and a teacher's ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things.
There's a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new teachers to meet, new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master...and I look forward to you sharing in those exciting times. As a parent myself I know how fast time goes by. One year your child's in 1st grade and seemingly in the blink of an eye they're in middle school.
In closing, I encourage you to fully embrace the moment and urge you to take the time from your busy schedule to become familiar with our school, as well as create a homework-friendly home environment that will allow your children to excel.
Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and I look forward to seeing you in the very near future.
Mr. Matthew L. Bowen
Damascus Elementary Principal
