Hello Dunham Families,
Today marks the end of the 2nd trimester. The students and staff continue to work hard and I’m proud of their efforts and growth. Report cards will go home on March 18th. Thankfully we have not had to miss school due to power outages, weather or other natural disasters. As such, we did not need to use any of the built-in emergency days on our calendar. This means spring break will be two weeks long this year. Spring break starts on March 28th and runs through April 8th. We are excited to start our garden class back up next week. A big thank you to the entire Mutschler Family as they have been graciously spending their evenings getting the garden ready for our students.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Superintendent / Principal

Also, we have room for students in some other grades as well. As you know, Dunham is a unique and great place to go to school. Our campus, culture, programs, staff, community, families and traditions make for an exceptional educational experience. If you have a family member, friend or neighbor who is looking for a school, send them our way. We’d love a chance to meet with them and further discuss our wonderful school.
