Dear Dunfee School Families,

Welcome back! I hope you all had a fun, relaxing summer and are ready to begin the 2017/18 school year. We have been very busy over the summer preparing for the arrival of our students and look forward to the start of school on September 5th! The first/ third grade pod has received new cabinets and all teachers have been hard at work setting up their rooms. Needless to say, we are excited to begin our journey together!

This year, our school theme is “Building a Better World: Dunfee Dragons R.O.A.R.” We will continue to foster higher level thinking and problem solving skills in our students so that they can develop into critical thinkers and tackle complex tasks with confidence. We also want to stress the importance of being a good citizen and provide students with the opportunity to complete projects as a school family so we can “Build a Better World” together. This theme also fits in nicely with our R.O.A.R. philosophy and stresses the importance of the R.O.A.R. attributes along students’ educational journey.

Back to School Night is scheduled for Thursday, September 21st at 6:30 PM. Once again, we will be hosting a kick- off parade for our ROAR program on September 22nd at 9:15 AM. More information will be forthcoming.

Our first day of school is Tuesday, September 5, 2017. We will be following the shortened day schedule on both Tuesday, September 5th and Wednesday, September 6th. The full day schedule will begin on Thursday, September 7th. Below, please find our school hours for your convenience:

Full Day Schedule: 8:20 AM to 3:00 PM (both breakfast and lunch are served)
Shortened Day Schedule: 8:20 AM – 12:20 PM (only breakfast is served)

In closing, I look forward to working with you as we build a better world throughout the 2017/18 school year! As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.

                                                       Sincerely,

                                                       Katherine Makela
                                                       Principal

            “BUILDING A BETTER WORLD: DUNFEE DRAGONS R.O.A.R.”
