•  A Message from the Principal:

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    We would like to officially welcome all of you to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope summer was relaxing and enjoyable for everyone.

    I’d like to invite you to visit our District and schools’ websites. These will serve as a resource for all upcoming events, important reminders and you can catch up with our quarterly newsletter.

    September is the time of year we reconnect with old friends and welcome new friends. To those students and parents who are new to General Brown Elementary, I would like to extend a warm welcome for an exciting and productive year in your new school. I hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school through the PTO and your child’s classroom program.

    I am privileged to be the Principal at Dexter Elementary, and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents/guardians. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this school year successful. We are lifelong educators, and are committed to students and families as well as a love for learning.

    Student safety is our top priority and the Administrative team meets on a regular basis to assess our current practices. We will continue with the procedure introduced last year having doors locked in all of our District buildings. Anyone wishing to enter a building will use the main entrance buzzer system and will be permitted to enter by a main office staff member.  Please be patient as we continue to refine this procedure and understand we are trying to create a safe environment for our children.

    In closing, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our teachers who spent many hours over the summer in trainings and preparing before school opened and to Mrs. Scordo who has done so many behind the scenes organizational tasks. We would also like to thank Mr. John Hulbert and our maintenance and cleaning staff for their hard work cleaning and preparing our building for the new school year.

    As your Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I encourage you to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas that you may have as we make Dexter Elementary Schools the best it can be.

    Our vision of success has begun and we look forward to seeing all of you!



    David Ramie

    Dexter Elementary Principal
