Transitioning Schools - Coffee & Conversation Podcast: Episode # 105

Welcome back to a new year of the Coffee & Conversation Podcast!

In this heartfelt back-to-school episode, host Jeff Harris gathers with Middle School Principal Paige Swan and High School Assistant Principal Sara Sampels. At DNUSD, we know just how emotional and important these transitions are for our children – from the sweet days of elementary school to the brave new world of middle school and the exciting adventure of high school.

As our children head off to their first day of school, we invite you to join us, along with these caring experts, as they share their wisdom and guidance. They'll walk us through the academic ups and downs and offer insights into the friendships, challenges, and growth your child will experience.



Jeff Harris - Superintendent of Schools



Paige Swan - Principal at Crescent Elk Middle School
