Families of DES students,
I am so excited and truly honored to be the Assistant Principal at Dalhart Elementary School. My name is Diane Thompson and this is my first year as an Assistant Principal. For the past 8 years I have been the School Counselor for Sunray Elementary and Middle school, handling Pre-k through 8th graders. My experience as a school counselor will contribute to being a great Assistant Principal. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of our 610 students.
I am originally from Dalhart, the daughter of Elvin and Grace Ringo. I graduated from Dalhart High and am proud to be back home. I am fortunate to work alongside our principal, Claudia Montoya, because she has a great heart for students. I am looking forward to a productive and great year!
Thank you for this opportunity to serve your families in this role! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
