A message from your Principal

Welcome DREAM EHES Families,

We are so excited to launch our 2020-2021 school year! Welcome to our newest members of our community - our Kindergarten students! This may be a year like no other, but what we can ensure is that our commitment to our students and families will not change. Our school was founded on a belief that families are our partners, our students deserve to feel known, valued, and loved, and our community is a place where joy and engagement are at the forefront. We look forward to working together and collaborating together this year and we hope that this website supports our communication.

Lots of Love,

Principal Canales
