Words from Mr. Simmons...



Thanks, everyone, for a great week!  This week allowed us to get back to a normal schedule.  Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to parent teacher conferences.  It is such an important part of your child's education.  Also, thank you to everyone who stopped by the book fair.  Special thanks to Mrs. Swick for her leadership at the book fair.


You will see below, but if you have an incoming Kindergarten student, please make sure that you contact the office.  Our Kindergarten registration will be on April 10th for all TSC schools. We look forward to welcoming our newest Bulldogs for the 2019-2020 school year.


We look forward to another great week.  Have a great weekend!


- Mr. Simmons, Principal

We would like to thank PTO and all the parents that provided food for our teachers during parent/teacher conferences. It is a long day for our teachers and it is so nice for them to be able to have food provided for them. We truly appreciate you!


We also would like to thank Mrs. Swick and all the parents who volunteered to help with the book fair. The kids enjoy shopping for new books and we could not have done it without your help!

They represented Dayton at their very first meet at Tri-County School on Saturday, January 26.  Even though they did not win they showed great teamwork and never gave up!

AR goal


An important part of our day here at Dayton involves reading.  Students work very hard to meet various AR goals throughout the year. We hope you are encouraging your child to continue their reading growth at home. If you are interested in following your child's AR goal and progress please follow the link below. 


Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood

Habit Home Run

Our Bulldogs are working on habit #5, Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood. 


This is where you listen attentively to other people's ideas with your eyes, ears, and heart without interrupting.

Then you clearly share your own ideas with confidence in order to avoid misunderstandings. 


This establishes effective understanding and communication for ourselves and others. Habit 5 can truly transform relationships.


Please send in the Habit Home Run sheet sharing how your child has displayed habit 5.

Bulldogs, keep hitting it out of the park!
