Administration Welcome

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Dunwoody Elementary School. I hope this letter finds you and your family well. As we prepare to embark on another exciting academic year, I want to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome back to our school community.

Our theme for this school year is: “Shine with the Eye of the Tiger.” At Dunwoody Elementary School, we believe in empowering our students to shine brightly like stars while embodying the fierce spirit of the tiger. Through a harmonious blend of encouragement and determination, we aim to create a learning environment where every student can confidently embrace their unique strengths and face challenges head-on.

Shining Brightly: Just like stars that illuminate the night sky, our students will be encouraged to shine in academics, the arts, and extracurricular activities. We recognize and celebrate each student's individual brilliance, fostering a culture where diversity is celebrated and inclusivity is paramount.

Academics: Our teachers are dedicated to nurturing the intellectual curiosity and creativity within each student. By challenging them to explore new ideas and encouraging them to question, we aim to cultivate critical thinking skills and a love for learning that will guide them throughout their lives. This year, we are dedicated to fostering an atmosphere of creativity, curiosity, and collaboration. Our team of educators has been hard at work preparing innovative lesson plans and implementing new programs to enhance your child's educational journey.

Character Development: As we strive to shine brightly, we also emphasize the importance of character development. Our school community values integrity, kindness, and empathy. We encourage our students to be supportive of one another and to embrace challenges with the unwavering spirit of the tiger. Throughout the year, we will focus on personalized learning to meet each student's unique needs and talents. Our goal is to empower them to reach their full potential academically, socially, and emotionally.

Competitions and Collaborations: Throughout the year, students will have the chance to participate in friendly competitions and collaborative projects. These experiences will not only build teamwork and leadership skills but also instill a sense of sportsmanship and camaraderie.

Events that Inspire: Inspired by the "Eye of the Tiger," our school events will be filled with enthusiasm and determination. Together, as a united and compassionate school community, we will shine brightly and roar courageously with the spirit of the tiger. Our students will grow into confident, well-rounded individuals who embrace challenges with a sense of determination and resilience.

Communication and collaboration between school and home: To ensure a successful school year, clear communication is essential. Our school website, School Messenger, Monthly Principal’s Post, PTO weekly Tiger Talk emails, and weekly newsletters from teachers will keep you updated on important events, curriculum updates, and extracurricular activities. I encourage you to stay connected with your child's teachers and school staff to maintain open lines of communication.

"Shine with the Eye of the Tiger" is not just a theme; it's a way of life at Dunwoody Elementary School. Let's embark on this exciting journey of learning and personal growth together!
