Come enjoy the freedom and beauty of South Mountain's Pima Canyon Trail while meeting and/or reconnecting with other DGM moms!
LeCenia is a DGM Mom who is leading this Moms Club activity.
Info about the trail: The Pima trail does not have demanding ups and downs as some of the other local single-track trails. It's a gentle but relentless path allowing for good flow and movement to wake us all up in the morning feeling invigorated.
School closes at 4pm. There is no childcare after 4pm, so please pickup your child on time to avoid late fees.
Childcare Registration for 2019-2020
Childcare Days are days the School is open but there is no class instruction. Childcare is made available to assist working parents. These dates are all listed on the DGM website At-A-Glance Calendar.
Please fill out the Childcare Registration Form here for Fall Break childcare or any childcare dates that you are interested in. It is imperative that you register your child/children (this includes Extended Day children) if you wish to have your child receive care. If you are not registered, we cannot extend childcare services to you since we base our staffing needs on the number of children who are registered.
