Students are excited for our Leadership Day this Thursday, April 26th.  We have 46 distinguished guests coming to hear student speeches and visit classrooms. Your children have worked very hard and we look forward to celebrating all we have learned this year! 


We wrapped up the final round of ISTEP+ this week.  What a relief!  


Thank you to the Leadership Environment Team led by Mrs. Vaughn.  Dayton Elementary looks and feels even more great thanks to their creative genius! Here are two examples of inspirational quotes placed strategically to inspire greatness in everyone!

Bulldog Jog 5K Color run - Canceled

We are very sad to say the Bulldog Jog has been canceled.  We were not able to get enough RSVPs to be able to host the event. If you have already paid, PTO will send refunds out soon. Again, we are sorry and we hope to be able to do this event next year. 


The Leader In Me

7 Habits at Home

This activity is designed to inspire families to discuss their big and little rocks then work together to Put First Things First!

Congratulations to Mrs. Wolf, Mrs. Howard, and Mrs. Korty on all receiving funding from Donors Choose. The Kindergarten teachers are working on creating a "Learning Garden" for the kids to learn about nature and life cycles. We are very excited to see this project come together.
