Welcome to the Daphne Elementary School family!
The entire faculty and staff are so excited about beginning another great school year. We are all committed to working hard to ensure that Daphne Elementary students receive a quality education in a caring, nurturing, and safe environment. Daphne Elementary School consists of pre-kindergarten through grade three. All classes are taught by highly qualified teachers.
As an Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) School, our students are exposed to a balanced literacy program. We are committed to providing quality instruction that will provide all students with the literacy skills needed to meet or exceed grade-level standards.
In addition to academics, Daphne Elementary is a Leader in Me school where we are striving to continue growing each and every child every day. At DES, by incorporating the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into our daily routine, we implement activities that will engage and empower our learners. Our students will be participating in clubs and in student leadership roles that will enhance their school experience and their love for learning.
The students at Daphne Elementary have many opportunities to use technology on a daily basis. Each student is equipped with an electronic device to utilize educational programs such as IXL Math and Grammar, I-Ready, and other online websites. Students also immerse into computerized assessments throughout the year.
Parental involvement is a crucial component to the success of each student at Daphne Elementary. I want to encourage each of you to get involved in our school and with your child’s school experience. We have some wonderful activities planned for your children this year. If you have questions or concerns throughout the year and cannot locate the answer on our school website or Facebook page, feel free to contact your child’s teacher for guidance. We know that with open communication and a clear direction, your child will have a successful year.
We would like to thank you for entrusting your children to our care. Daphne Elementary is truly a place where every day is a wonderful day in our neighborhood school.
Remember our motto: Love. Learn. Lead
