Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all our Jr. Oilers! We hope that you had a wonderful and restful break with family and friends. We look forward to a successful and fun second half of the school year.

Classified Employee of the Year

Congratulations to Mrs. Carol Hunneyman on being chosen as Dwyer's Classified Employee of the Year! She is our Information Technology Assistant extraordinaire. On most days you will find her running around helping teachers with everything tech or running our computer lab. She assists students with their tech needs and pushes them to try new things. Mrs. Hunneyman is also the brains behind our platform that houses GRITcoin, GRITbands, and infractions. If you have purchased something at a pop-up shop on an iPad or used your GRITcoin at Duck Donuts, Jimboy's, Mama's, or Pizza Press, it is because of the engineering and design that she works on after hours. She is an invaluable part of the Dwyer community. Thank you for all you do, Mrs. Hunneyman!

What is Social Media's Influence on My Child?

Parents are invited to a FREE education night to learn about how social media and screen time is affecting our kids' mental health.
