If you would like to get a head-start, you can begin by downloading the Remind App and join the Class of 2025. Code is @dab2025. We are asking every parent to sign up. I will be using this app to send out information now and throughout the next three years. The Remind App is the best way to keep up to date with important information and reach the administration.
