• Principal’s Welcome Letter



    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year Matadors and families!  I am so happy to welcome you back to learning at Spain School this Fall.  It has what seems like just a few short weeks since we have seen our halls and classrooms filled with students.  Many of you have grown and changed over the summer and you may notice a few changes at school as well.  A few beloved teachers retired and we have a few new faces, but one thing that remains constant is our joy and passion to educate each student and to help them on their path to success.

    We are so excited about beginning a new school year with you and we have many things planned for this year.  First, we want to make Spain the premier elementary/middle school in DPSCD and we can do this with the help of all students and parents.  Next, we want to continue to put Spain on the map as a top notch performing arts and conservatory school offering; drama, dance, visual arts and vocal music programs.  We offer the best in academia and in the performing arts, ensuring that we are creating well-rounded citizens to make an impact on the world.

    We ask that parents get involved with our PTA, join Class Dojo with your child's classroom teacher and come out and support all school activities and programs.   We are looking forward to our winter concerts, spring musical, girls and boys basketball season, after-school tutoring, Sphinx music program, return of field trips and our annual Winter Wonderland Pancake Breakfast.  We have all of this and so much more planned for our Spain family. Let's work together to make this school year the best year yet promoting Matador Pride!   

     Please be assured that it is our priority to not only meet the educational needs of each child, but to also ensure that we are addressing and meeting the social and emotional needs of every child, as well as ensuring that we have a school social worker and school nurse present to work with our students.  Parents, we cannot do this alone and we are asking that you partner with us to make this a safe and successful year.  If we work together, we can make certain that each child’s needs are met.  Please be certain to check the school website regularly for updates, follow us on Twitter and look out for us launching on Instagram.  We appreciate you and look forward to a great and successful school year!
