     Dear Detroit Lions Academy families,

    As the Principal of Detroit Lions Academy, it is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to a great year at DLA. I am thrilled to have students physically back in our classrooms. Our staff eagerly awaits to witness their laugher, energy, and enthusiasm for learning. Since the 2021-2022 school year will have some resemblance of normalcy, our staff looks forward to hosting in person events including Literacy Night, STEAM Night, Fall, Spring and Winter Concerts and after tutoring and school clubs, with the return of these events, it will be an amazing year!

    I encourage all of our parents to become active members of our PTA. With your support, our staff and students can have amazing events, school supplies, and field trip opportunities.

    To stay abreast of all that is taking place at Detroit Lions, please be sure to have an updated cell phone number and email address to receive information via our messaging system and be sure to create a PowerSchool Account. Also, remember to visit our website and social media platforms regularly for current news and upcoming events.

It is great to be a part of a community where      students, teachers, and parents care for each other and strive to build meaningful relationships that support academic and social-emotional growth.
