Welcome to Dorothy Stinson's Principal Page
Hello, my name is Mike Moreno and I am the principal at Dorothy Stinson School. I am so pleased that we are finally starting school in our new building. There were setbacks along the way that delayed us from moving into our new building in May as was originally planned, but we have been given the all-clear and are ready to roll. I am extremely happy to finally have all of my staff and students reunited under one roof. I thank you for being an active part of this school year.
We will not be having our Back to School Night on Tuesday, July 25, from 3:00-6:00. With my teachers only being able to get into their new rooms on Monday, two days before school starts, I have chosen to postpone our Back to School Night so that my teachers have the full two days to get their rooms ready for your children on Wednesday. We will have an Open House sometime within the next three weeks. More information will be coming out on this when we have chosen a date.
I ask that you become an active member of our school. Please get involved in whatever you can with your child and their class. Our teachers always welcome parents to come read with or to their students as well as do small group math and other center activities. Your child will do much better when they see their parents actively involved in their learning. So if you would like to come and volunteer, please make arrangements through the teachers first. This way, the teacher knows you are coming and can plan for something you can do with the students. Otherwise, it can become a distraction for some of the students when there is another adult in the class, but they aren't working with the students.
Our times are the same this year. Dorothy Stinson will begin school at 8:00 and will be dismissed at 2:00. The first day of school is Wednesday, July 26. All Fridays throughout the year will be early release days with school being dismissed at 12:20.
Also, please remember your child's safety is very important to us. Please make sure that is your priority as well and help us keep your children safe.
Yours in education,
Michael Moreno, Principal
Dorothy Stinson School
