Featured Student Work
Our beloved Facilities Manager Lafayette Rockette will be retiring at the end of the month. He has been in this role for the full 19 years that he has worked in DPS and has been an invaluable part of the East Community. We’d say he is a saint, but truly he’s an Angel, through and through. Since we can’t meet in person to give him a proper send off, we are collecting donations for a monetary retirement gift. If you would like to contribute, please contact East parent Julie Selsberg at (303) 229-9715, email@example.com or via Venmo at @Julie-Selsberg.
