Welcome Back DSES Dolphins!
It's great to have all our students back at Dunwoody Springs ES for what promises to be our BEST year yet! We appreciate the trust you place in us each day and look forward to a year of learning and excitement! To be successful, we need your help. Please partner with your child's teacher this year to support their efforts. Our teachers love our students and are working hard to challenge and engage them each day.
You can find our school supply lists here: 2017 - 2018 School Supply List
Our classroom teachers look forward to meeting all our parents at our Curriculum Nights the last week of August. We would like for this to be a well-attended event so please plan on attending. Curriculum Night is Wednesday, 8/30 for all grade levels from 5:30-6:30 or 6:30- 7:30 PM. We will begin each night in your child's classroom so please plan accordingly.
It is also important that all parents join and support our PTA. Our PTA not only provides many of the resources our students use each day and but they make many of the activities and events our students love happen . Our school goal is to have all 600 families join before 9/1 - please do your part and support us now!
School hours are 7:40 - 2:20 PM each day. Our car pool lane begins at 7:10 and ends at 7:40 each morning - please plan on arriving before 7:35 as students are late at 7:40AM. Have your child ready to exit on the passenger side onto the sidewalk and follow the spray painted dolphins.
Instead of utilizing car pool, we encourage all our students to ride the bus. Morning arrival times and bus stop locations are available here: http://www.fultonschools.org/en/divisions/ops/trans/Pages/default.aspx.
