Google Expeditions at the Dewing

 Thanks to district Technology Integration Specialists Lisa Bailey and Jessica Simpson, Dewing teachers and students spent time today learning about Google Expeditions, a wonderful iPad app that allows students an almost 3-dimensional virtual experience of history and the world.  With over 900 expeditions, teachers have the resources to engage students in global learning opportunities.

Traffic Patterns for Drop Off and Pick Up

Hello Families,

We are so excited for our students to begin school on Wednesday! Our staff has been working hard to prepare for the arrival of our young learners.

We have created an attachment outlining traffic procedures for drop-off and pick-up. We are also waiting for some additional signs to be delivered and installed. In the meantime, these maps should help outline the different patterns for the various programs. In the attachment, you will see that there are multiple maps labeled by program name. As we are sending this email to all families in PK-2, we have attached all maps, so please check to make sure that you are reviewing the correct one.

We look forward to a great start to the school year!

Thank you,

Alexis Bosworth

Assistant Principal/Preschool Coordinator

Dewing School Rock Garden is Unique

When you next visit the Dewing, take a moment to look at the first installment of what we hope will be a yearly addition to our landscape by our second grade artists.  Thanks to Art Teacher Kristen Kosiba, and with inspiration from Linda Krantz’ book, “Only One You,” our students painted rocks to show the world how they are unique and special.
