2023 Spelling Bee

Congratulations to our Eagles who represented their class by participating in our 2023 DVA Spelling Bee.

The students demonstrated courage, determination, perseverance, and respect. We are so proud of each one of them!

Our spellers battled through 19 rounds of words, with Tristan G successfully spelling the championship word to secure him the top spot. Esmeralda M is on deck as our alternate.

We look forward to Tristan representing DVA at the upcoming Yuma County Spelling Bee.

Our E-A-G-L-E-S are A-W-E-S-O-M-E!


We were delighted to honor selected students for demonstrating the character quality of respect.


• Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule
• Be understanding of differences
• Use good manners, don’t use bad language
• Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone
• Be considerate of the feelings of others
• Deal peacefully with anger, insults and disagreements

Everyone has worth as a human being and deserves our respect. You don’t have to like everyone, and you don’t have to agree with their opinions or behavior, but you should still give respect freely, regardless of the respect that you receive.

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Way to show respect, DVA Eagles!


Our DVA Eagles understand that character is important and we work hard on developing strong, healthy character traits. For the month of September, we emphasized being trustworthy.

Be honest. Don’t deceive, cheat, or steal.
Have integrity. Do what you say you’ll do.
Keep your promises.
Be loyal. Stand by your values.

During our October PTL, we were proud to honor several outstanding students with the Trustworthy award.

Thank you, DVA Eagles, and remember, our character always counts!
