Principal's Message

                    From the Desk of the Principal:










“Let’s Grow Together” is the theme/motto we have chosen to guide us through this school year as we continue to shine bright!  I am ecstatic to begin the 2022-2023 school year with you, my Dennis family.  I am a proud product of Lee County and Lee County Schools, invested and committed to our students.  Our students are our priority and the reason why we do what we do each and every day.  

As we begin anew, it is imperative to build positive relationships with a shared commitment to creating success for our students and school.   This year, we begin with a new vision, mission, and shared beliefs for our school.   Our vision, “As a community of partners, we will promote unique talents and empower ALL students to strive for academic excellence,”  embodies our aspirations for Dennis. The mission of Dennis Elementary is, in collaboration with our diverse families, community, and partners, we are committed to promoting ownership of learning through data-informed instruction and a positive environment to achieve academic excellence.  At Dennis, our shared beliefs capture our devotion to our students' academic, social, and emotional needs to increase academic achievement.  We must all share these beliefs to ensure our students receive rigorous, educational experiences that excel them into middle and high school then college/careers. 

As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, as owners of Dennis Elementary School, let's allow our school pride to shine bright through our words, thoughts, and actions, always remembering we are stronger together.  It is my hope you will be an active part of our school community with students at the forefront of everything we do.  Whether you teach or support those who teach, you play a vital role and are an intricate part of the work of Dennis Elementary.  I hope you will lend your strengths to Dennis with an investment in the work that happens within our walls. Your input, feedback, and voice matter so please engage and work alongside us.   We are on this educational journey together and need each other for Dennis to be a school of excellence. I am confident that with our exceptional students, staff committed to lifelong learning, supportive parents, and engaged community, we will pursue excellence in all we do.  With all stakeholders working in partnership and moving in the same direction, we can help our students achieve at high levels.  

As Principal of Dennis Elementary, students will continue to be my main business in an environment of teaching and learning, with an emphasis on learning. It is my esteemed honor to serve each of you as the proud principal and biggest cheerleader of Dennis Elementary School.  I remain dedicated to leading with respect and humility while growing alongside the best teachers, students, staff, parents, and community.   At Dennis Elementary, we will continue to shine bright!


With Dennis Pride,
