Principal’s Message

Hello Dumbarton Wildcats!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I bring you greetings and salutations as the new principal of Dumbarton Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Scott and I am overjoyed to begin the school year with such exceptional students, teachers and parents! I look forward to meeting each of you as we collaborate to take Dumbarton to the next level. Throughout the year we will maintain our focus on learning, loving, and leading. Our mission statement is… At Dumbarton Elementary School, we believe in ourselves, our school, and our community. We will reach our full potential by learning, loving, and leading together.

Our school motto is Leaders Love Learning …Let’s Continue to Make It Happen! Our motto is linked to our three focus areas this year: Leadership, Culture and Academics. We enjoy teaching your children and it is our goal that they will always love to learn. By working together, we can watch them grow and blossom. Dumbarton continues to be a Leader in Me School where we practice the 7 Habits of Happy Kids:

1. Be Proactive (You’re In Charge)

2. Begin With the End In Mind (Have a Plan)

3. Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)

4. Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)

5. Seek First to Understand, Then Be Understood (Listen Before You Talk)

6. Synergize (Together Is Better)

7. Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

Parents play such an important role in their child’s education, and we value the partnership tremendously. Joining our PTA allows parents and teachers as a team to support our events and activities throughout the year. If at any point in the school year, you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact your child’s teacher, a PTA board member or me. We look forward to having an amazing year!

Sincerely,

Carla Scott, Principal
