Dolphin News

A Word From Mrs. White

We had our first PTO meeting this week Tuesday evening. It was a great success with a fantastic turnout. So many wonderful things are in the works for our students! There is still time to get involved and sign up to volunteer! Make sure you are signing up in the membership toolkit using the info below.

Thank you for a great week with your wonderful students! We got to join all together again for Dolphin Daybreak and it was fantastic! We used to do this on a weekly basis before COVID and this is the first time we have gathered all together again. It did my heart really good to look out and see all their sweet faces. Dennis is a special place full of wonderful students, staff, and families and I am blessed to be your Principal. Enjoy a restful fun weekend and we will do it all again next week (minus monday).

We had our first Dolphin Daybreak Assembly this week and it was AWESOME!
