      DCE truly believes “it takes a village” and our outstanding families, PTO, and business partners work tirelessly alongside educators and staff to meaningfully contribute to the collective mission of eXcellence for all learners! There are many opportunities to partner! Please let me know if you are interested and I will connect you with the perfect fit for your time and talents!
