Message from the Elementary Principal-
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are very proud to serve the Dundee community by providing a safe, nurturing, and engaging school environment in which to learn and grow. This year, our teachers will be taking personalized learning to a new level! We have been planning for this initiative for several months now and are super excited to begin implementation. We are committed to providing instruction that is learner centered and highly motivating to all students. Technology will play an even greater role in student achievement and our ability to differentiate to meet each child’s needs. Please see below for the four key elements to our initiative:
The world is changing and schools have been slow to catch up… here at DCS we are making strides to ensure that our students are college and career ready. Our students will need to be problem solvers, reflective thinkers, team players, risk takers, communicators, and technologically savvy to compete in the 21st century. We intend to make this happen, as our students deserve only the best!
Parents are an integral component to our learning community. I would encourage all parents to become members of our Parent Advisory Council and to participate in at least one of the many activities and volunteer opportunities during the school year. Your help is always needed and appreciated.
We will continue keep what is best for children at the heart of every decision, and we reflect constantly on our policies, practices, and procedures in order to take action to improve. As always, should you have a question, concern, or an idea to share, please don’t hesitate to call us. We honor your insight and value your opinions.
Our DCS Team looks forward to working with the amazing students that will be walking through our doors each day and vow to make this school year the best one ever!
A Community of lifelong learners invested in discovering their fullest potential through personalized pathways.
