Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
We are excited to welcome many of you back and greet others to our school community for the first time for the 2019.2020 school year. It is with gratitude and excitement that I return for my second year at Dartmouth. The office staff has worked hard all summer to make some fun additions and changes to our school community to support the academic, social and emotional learning for ALL students. Teachers provided lists of materials they need in order to promote a culture of achievement and growth. We've also had a few construction projects occur that will enhance our learning environment.
A few of my core values include: kindness, integrity, communication, perseverance and building relationships. You will see me model these on a consistent basis. I see potential in all children and make an effort every day to connect with students on a real, personal level. My goal is to support teachers with the right resources in order to provide all students with the knowledge and mental training they need to navigate the world around them and to foster a positive environment that allows our team of students and staff to grow.
I look forward to partnering with each and every one of you to create a safe, caring and academically rich learning environment for every child, every day. We will continue PTO meetings this year and welcome all parents to be an active member so we can collaborate on important topics. As you can see, we have updated our website and will work to keep you informed of current information around all Dartmouth and district events.
We are excited to see our 1st-5th graders on August 6th and our Preschool-Kinders on August 12th. Our student hours are from 8:30-3:05. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the information in this letter (or in general) as I try to maintain an open door approach.
