Dunn's Corners School
Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe
October 15, 2021
Good afternoon DCS!
US News and World Report came out with their school rankings based on the 2018-2019 data. We are ranked 31 out of 164 RI elementary schools, placing us in the top 18%.
The three WPS elementary schools will not be hosting a fall open house. We will be sharing out a virtual open house towards the end of the month.
This month, our schoolwide theme is skills for learning: listening, focusing attention, using self-talk to stay on-task, and being assertive when asking for help with a learning task. In our morning announcements and school assembly, we’ll be reminding students of these skills, which help students be successful learners.
We will be re-establishing our school improvement team. Please complete this form if interested by October 15, 2021.
Finally, remember to go directly to your child's teacher for any questions, concerns, positive feedback, or for information about the school day.
We will be using #dcsanchors all over social media. Look for it on twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
Have a great weekend!
Mr. Morrone, Proud Principal of DCS!
