Scholastic Book Fair Opens April 5

Mrs. Marcou and Mrs. Hoeker shows that readers are Happy Campers at this Spring's Scholastic Book Fair, which opens Thursday, April 5 and runs through April 15 at the PTO Easter Bunny Social. For a listing of when each class attends, click here. All profits from this Fair will go directly toward guided reading books and library materials. Don't forget to check out the Staff Wish List tower to pick a book for your child's classroom or for one of our specialists.

DES celebrated its first ever "Unsung Heroes Day", celebrating and giving thanks to our awesome maintenance and kitchen staff, who keep us safe and clean and well fed every day--and who do it with a smile! Thank you, Lee, Janis, Jim, James and Carey!


Mrs. Virta's 5th Grade History Lesson comes to life at DES!


Third Grader Eliana will represent Dunbarton Elementary School at the State Finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee on February 25. Congratulations to Eliana and all of the finalists from each class who proved that they are outstanding spellers!

In keeping with a long standing DES tradition our 3rd graders created an amazing Dunbarton gingerbread village!

"Makaylie, Marilyn and Delaney make a new friend on the playground after the season's first snow fall!" 

On November 16th members of the Dunbarton Police and Fire Departments joined our students during lunch. DES wants to express our appreciation for their service and all that these wonderful people do for our community. Thank you!

6th Grader Hannah Rondeau produced the winning poster for the Lion's International Peace Poster Contest, which encourages children aged 11 to 13 to creatively express what Peace means to them, so that, in sharing their vision, we may all have greater tolerance and international understanding. Hannah's poster will be entered into the contest for the International Grand Prize. Congratulations, Hannah!
