Dear Dunfee School Families,

It is hard to believe that the school year will be coming to a close in just a few short weeks.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of our school and programs.    It is with the outstanding staff at the Dunfee School and your involvement in your child’s education that have helped make the 2017/18 school year a positive learning experience for our students.    We are pleased to announce that every child at the Dunfee School has earned an invitation to our End-of-Year R.O.A.R.  Ice cream Celebration on June 14th for receiving R.O.A.R. tickets throughout the school year.   In addition, all students will be treated to an ice cream party on June 14th for their outstanding efforts of Building a Better World for our community.   I am very proud of the many service projects that were completed this year by our students.  They truly helped make the difference in the lives of so many!

As the final days of the school year unwind, I would like to wish our fifth grade students the best of luck as they move on to the Russell O. Brackman Middle School.    We will remember the time they spent at the Dunfee School with fondness and are proud of all they have accomplished!

For your convenience, please find a list of all June happenings below.  Just a reminder that we will be following the early dismissal schedule on June 19th, 20th, and 21st.  Students will be dismissed at 12:20 PM on these days. 

On a final note, I would like to extend a fond farewell to Mrs. Patty McCabe, special education teacher, who will be retiring at the end of June.  We wish her much happiness as she begins the next chapter in her life.   In addition, it is with much love, respect and gratitude that I conclude my last Principal’s Letter.   You are truly an amazing school family and I wish your children much success in the years to come!

Have a safe, happy and healthy summer vacation!
