Open House

Desert Sky invites you to attend Open House on Thursday, August 3rd from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. The evening will begin at 6:30pm in our gymnasium. During this time, we will introduce our teaching staff to you, and we will hold an open forum where parent representatives will be elected to serve on Desert Sky’s Site Council. Nominations will be taken on the floor and those parents in attendance will have the opportunity to vote for parent representation on the Site Council. Immediately following the Site Council election (approximately 7:00pm), parents and families are welcome to visit the classrooms of our students’ teachers. This informal meeting will allow you an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and see the classrooms where your child is learning everyday.

8th grade parent meeting

8th Grade Parents!

There will be a parent meeting tonight, July 20th, at 6 p.m. in the Desert Sky MPR to discuss the 8th Grade Chromebook 1to1 program.  There will be a presentation and a Q&A session.  This meeting is not mandatory in order for your child to receive a Chromebook.
