Parent Survey

We would love to get your input on how Dunham is doing and potential next steps for 2019-20.  Please take 10-15 minutes to give us some feedback by Friday, April 19.  While it is absolutely okay to remain anonymous, if you prefer to provide your name, then you could be selected as the recipient of our Dunham Dragon Parking Spot for the month of May.


Pasta Feed and Musical Revue

Our annual Pasta Feed and Musical Revue is coming up on Saturday, April 13.  This is an amazing night that features the music our students have been practicing all year with Mr. Andrew.  The show itself is free and will run from approximately 5 – 6 PM.  This will be followed by our Pasta Feed, from approximately 6 – 8 PM.  Pasta dinner tickets are now on sale and can be purchased in the office or by using this link:


Tickets will also be on sale after school next week Monday, April 8  – Wednesday, April 10.  We hope you and your family can make it for this wonderful event!

Pasta Feed Performance Information 

If you and your child are planning to attend our amazing Musical Revue and Pasta Feed, we ask that you have your child there by 4:45.  Please stay with your child until you see your child’s teacher.  Students will sit at the front with their class.  This year we are trying to capture our theme of “Let Your True Colors Shine” by having each class wear a specific color.  The color assignments are as follows:

TK and K – red

1st – orange

2nd – yellow

3rd – green

4th – blue

5th and 6th – purple

If your child does not have their class color, don’t worry, it is most important that they are able to participate in the beautiful singing.  


It’s hard to believe that we are so close to the end of another school year.  Want to remember all the great moments from this year in images?  Then you should order a yearbook!  Yearbook order forms are being sent out in Friday Folders (and is attached here).  Yearbooks are $18 each and orders need to be placed by Thursday, April 25.

Spirit Day

Get ready for another awesome Dunham Spirit Day!  Next Wednesday, April 10 is “Around the World” day.  Your child can wear outfits that represent a different culture or can wear travel shirts they’ve acquired from different places in the U.S. or world.  

Dress Code

As we start gearing up for some warmer weather, please be sure to refer to our Dunham Dress Code.  

In general, clothing should be modest, neat, clean, and free of offensive words and pictures.  This includes items with expressions, pictures, or words that are obscene, profane, or are disparaging or demeaning to others, or promote or advertise drugs, tobacco, alcohol, violence, or make reference to gangs.  Clothing or adornment that interferes with learning, or is a distraction to others is not permitted.  With these ideas in mind, we ask families and students to respect the following dress guidelines for students attending our school.

  • All students must wear closed toe shoes that are secured at the heel. Students who wear sandals, clogs, metal tipped shoes, western boots, and any other shoe considered inappropriate or unsafe for sports activities, should bring athletic/tennis shoes to change into for P.E..  Preferable, such unsafe or inappropriate shoes would not be worn to school.
  • With regards to shorts and skirts, the length should hang below their fingertips when fully extended at their sides.
  • All tank tops and shirts should be modest and either be tucked into pants or extend well below the belt line. Tank top straps must be one inch wide, at least.
