Dewey Is excited!

It is such a joy to be thinking about how amazing our 2021-2022 school year is going to be. We are honored to welcome back our Class of 2029 as 5th graders and are excited to meet the Class of 2030!

Teacher letters to students and Open House Sign-Up

Dewey teacher letters to students will be mailed on or about Friday, August 6. I know your student will not be able to wait to see who his/her teacher is going to be.

The week of August 9 you will receive an email with Sign-Up Genius information so you can reserve a time for you and your child to meet his/her teacher, bring school supplies and fill out any additional paperwork.

Open House is August 24 from 8:00-3:00. Each time slot will be 15 minutes in length.

Free/Reduced Lunch Form - Do not skip this section.

It is exciting to announce school lunches will once again be free of charge due to help from the government.

With that being said, our district revenues are determined through a formula and free/reduced lunch numbers are a big part of that formula. We are asking/strongly encouraging each family to fill out the form, even if you do not think you will qualify, to help gain any additional funds for our District. The link to the form is below.


Yearbooks from 2020-2021 have arrived!

Last year's Dewey students that purchased a yearbook may pick them up at Dewey between 9:00-3:00, August 9-12, or August 23. If not picked up, last year's 4th-grade students will receive the yearbook at Open House and last year's 5th-graders will be taken to CMS.

If you want a yearbook and did not order one, we have a few that can be purchased at the Dewey office for $10.
