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: 2018-19 School Supply List
2018-19 Welcome Back Letter and PTA Membership Form & Information

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 Thursday, September 13, 2018  for all grade levels  from 5:30-7:30 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! PTA dues are $20 per child and $5. Different levels are available as well. Ask about our Gold, Bronze and Platinum memberships.  Credit cards will be accepted this year with NO FEE!

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.

Free breakfast is available to all DSES students but  will not be served after 7:40am. 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.
