Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Katherine Dunn Elementary School!  The staff and I look forward to meeting all of the students and families who are new to the Dunn school community and welcome back our returning students and families. Every staff member is committed to creating the best educational opportunities for your child within a safe learning environment.  The staff at Katherine Dunn E.S. truly loves and cares about children and believes that all children can learn and be successful.

In order to achieve our academic goals, it is necessary to have standards of acceptable behavior and academic performance so that every child knows what is expected in our school community.  This calendar has been created to assist you with valuable information about school events throughout the year, as well as to communicate our expectations.  Please review the information in the calendar and share it with your child.  If you have any questions, please call the office or make an appointment. We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to make your child’s school experience a positive one.

Together in education,

Marla Mentaberry, Principal
