Good Evening students and parents,
This is Lauryn Duncan, Principal at Douglass Elementary School calling with a few announcements for the week.
Parents, please know that teachers work very hard to maintain high time on task and we certainly welcome your support. Therefore, it is important to schedule a time with your child’s teacher if you would like to visit or volunteer in the classroom.
