•  A Message from the Principal:


    Dear Parents/Guardians,


    As the end of the year is quickly approaching, please be sure to check our monthly calendar as well as the district website for important end of the year updates. June will be a busy month and we don’t want you to miss anything!


    Pre-k’s last day will be Friday, June 17th.

    There is no school on Monday, June 20th as it’s now a federal holiday.

    Kindergarten promotion will be Tuesday, June 21st in our gymnasium.


    -Mrs. Bellinger and Mrs. Cloonan will be 9:30 to 10:00 AM

    -Mrs. Dillabough and Ms. Lothrop will be 10:30 to 11:00 AM

    -Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Parker will be 1:30 to 2:00 PM


    Seating will be accessible 15 minutes prior to the start of each program. Bleacher seating will be available, but please be mindful of the number of attendees. Although this is a special day for our Kindergarten students, it is still considered a full day of instruction.

    We will have half days on Wednesday, June 22nd and Thursday, June 23rd. Students will be released starting at 11:10am. Students' summer vacation will officially begin Friday, June 24th!

    Field trips are back in full-swing! If you’re interested in chaperoning your child’s class, please let their teacher know. Other upcoming fun activities include a fun day on Thursday, May 26th. Staff and students will be outside all day participating in games and competitions along with a cookout. Please put sunscreen on your child before he/she comes to school.

    June 15th will be our spirit day and PTO has rented an ice cream truck for us! More information will be coming from the classroom teachers.

    PTO is purchasing popsicles again this year for the warmer days in June for our students.

    We are looking at planning additional activities for our students, parents and community members! Stay tuned…

    I want to end by thanking my office staff, our teachers, teacher aides, bus drivers, custodians, cafeteria staff, parents, guardians and day care providers. It has been another challenging year navigating our way out of a pandemic and we all had to make sacrifices and alternative plans for us to successfully complete this school year. Everyone at Dexter Elementary looks forward to returning in September for a smoother school year.
