A Caring Learning Community Celebrating Diversity

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Dumfries Family,

It's hard to believe that we are wrapping up the first quarter! Our teachers and staff are looking forward to parent/teacher conferences on Tuesday, November 5th. If you have not yet scheduled a conference, please reach out to your child's teacher to schedule your conference.

We've had a busy October! We had a successful Field Day. The weather was perfect and we had such a great turnout of volunteers. I held our first Principal's Coffee and was able to share our school's goals and vision with a group of parents that came. Please do join me at our next meeting in December. We had our PTO/Advisory Meeting, Skate Night and a Movie Night as well this month. Thank you to those families that joined us for that! We ended the month with a wonderful turnout for our first ever Momster Mash! Everyone had an awesome time dancing the night away!

In November, please join us for our PTO meeting on November 12 at 6:00 pm. We will also have our Thanksgiving Luncheon on Thursday, November 14. If you plan to join your child's class for our Thanksgiving Luncheon, please RSVP and let us know. On November 21, we will host our Multicultural Night. We are so proud of student's heritage and look forward to seeing you there!

Thank you for all you do to support your child's learning and Dumfries ES.
