DPS Good News for April 24, 2020


  • Congratulations to Burton Elementary (for the third straight year!), C.C. Spaulding Elementary, and Lakewood Elementary, who were all named Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools for 2019-20! Capturing Kids’ Heartstools and processes help create socio-emotional safety conducive to learning, replacing defensiveness with openness and judgment with acceptance and connectedness to the school.
