3rd Grade Kimmy Cantrell Project


Under Art Teacher Mrs. Johnson's guidance, 3rd Grade is completing an art project in tribute to artist Kimmy Cantrell. Their awesome faces bear a striking resemblance to the artist's original work below!


Dunbarton Elementary Students hosted a "Thank You Veterans" Breakfast and personally shook hands with each veteran after a brief flag-raising ceremony. Students whose immediate family members are veterans participated in the ceremony.

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!
