Principal's Message

Welcome to E. J. Dunn Elementary!
 
The staff of E.J. Dunn Elementary welcomes you!  At E.J. Dunn, we believe that the quality of education is enhanced when home and school have a strong relationship. This relationship is founded on good strong ongoing communication.
 
It is my pleasure to welcome all new and returning families to a new school year at E. J. Dunn Elementary School. We will be working throughout the school year to make all new families feel welcome in our school, something that we consider ourselves very good at doing.
 
For myself, this will be my third year at E. J. Dunn Elementary.  I am thoroughly enjoying my time here at the school and am especially excited to see the school begin to grow once again.  There are many aspects to E. J. Dunn Elementary that make it an outstanding educational facility.  Please allow me to share these highlights with you.
  1.  A welcoming and friendly school community that prides itself on ensuring that children are respected, cared for and receive quality education.
  2. An instructional focus on reading and writing.
  3. A strong professional staff team that has benefitted from working together.
  4. An overall school philosophy that believes that all children can be successful and that as adults in this community, it is our responsibility to see that they have this opportunity.
  5. Activities in our school are important for the well-being, growth, and development of children.
I believe each school year has the potential to be a remarkable learning experience for our children.  I do pride myself on being available to talk to parents, either in person, by telephone or email, so please, should parents have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
