On Deck with the Administrators

Dear Dayton Oaks Families,


We are almost at the end of the school year.  Where did the time go?  I am so incredibly proud of our school.  Students have engaged in growth and learning, excelled in extra-curricular activities, and demonstrated DIVE expectations each and every day.  As we head toward the last day of school, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for welcoming me to the community and for supporting our school.

Thank you for your partnership as we all work together.  Our parents have consistently supported teachers by volunteering in classrooms, working with students, organizing school events and activities, chaperoning field trips, or serving as PTA members. There are a myriad of ways parents can get involved in our school.  This past week, it was wonderful to celebrate our volunteers at our Volunteer Tea.  For all you do - Thank You.  In addition to our community members, I would also like to thank our custodians, bus drivers, and all the individuals behind the scenes who work tirelessly to support student learning.  When parents, teachers, and community members work together, students can reach amazing heights.

This summer, I look forward to reflecting on the school year and gaining input and feedback from our community as the DOES leadership team plans for the start of another extraordinary school year.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any suggestions for our school.  I also look forward to seeing some of you at our “Dine with Dolphins” events this summer.

I hope you are able to take time to rest and rejuvenate this summer.  Our teachers will certainly be taking time to recharge their engines and we hope students will enjoy a summer filled with fun.

We wish you and your family all the best during this summer break!
