Principal Update:

Dear Dawson Community,

Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year. I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of volunteering, chaperoning, reading, organizing, donating, and doing whatever was necessary to support students—both at home and school. Special thanks to our PTA who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience.

That experience could not occur without the endless energy, skills, and devotion of the Dawson staff. Thanks and well done to an incredible group of professionals.

A final word to Dawson students: Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year. I am so honored to be your principal; you make me proud to be a Dawson Dolphin. You keep me laughing and young at heart. I am grateful for your joy, keen insights, and amazing talents.

Best wishes to our graduating fifth graders, whom I will miss greatly—please come back and visit. Everyone have a safe and happy summer break.

Until next school year, here’s wishing you love, laughter, and learning.


Mrs. Wallace
