The Race Is On! 


The number of community members requesting receipt of this newsletter, The Beacon, continues to grow. It would be great to get it in the hands of all of our DSUSD families. In an effort to do just that, beginning today, Monday, February 9, any individual signing up on our web site to receive the newsletter will have his/her name entered into a drawing for one of five Chromebooks! 

Contest ends Tuesday, March 31, and winners will be announced in the April 6 edition. An electronic version of the flyer on page 11 will be sent to all principals on Monday, February 9, for distribution. Sorry but employees of Desert Sands Unified School District are not eligible to participate. Simply direct your school family members to go to http://www.dsusd.us/news to register. Look for a Spanish language version of the newsletter to be available in the very near future.
