Isaiah Pettway , our school
Dedicated, leader, and respectful, are a
few of the many words the students,
staff and administration would use to
describe our school leader. He teaches a
class called character education this class
teaches us life skill, respect and how to
mold our character. He spends his lunch
attending important meetings, and
gatherings about funding for our
school. He also motivates the students to
strive and do their best.
D.P.S.A serves the best catered
healthy lunch. In our cafeteria
it is optional for students to
purchase healthy snacks, and
beverage's from our vending
machines. Also, we have other
snacks in our cafeteria if the
student do not like what’s
being served. Mrs. Sanders (our
lunch aid) has rules about us
leaving the lunch room without
permission for our safety, also
so that we are not accused of
skipping. In order to leave the
cafeteria you must have a pass
from a staff in the building.
