Golden Days Parade

Dalton fifth grade student, Josie Garcia, was an official announcer during the annual City of Azusa Golden Days Parade.  She did a great job!  We may have a future broadcaster at our school!


Azusa Library Bookmobile Visits Dalton School

Students really enjoyed using their library cards and selecting their own reading books from the Azusa City Library Bookmobile.  It is a great way for students to get excited about reading!

Dalton Students Getting Hands-On With Math


Dalton teachers have been hard at work to implement our new Math Program, Everyday Mathematics.  This program address California Common Core State Standards and addresses the skills students need to really understand Math concepts and apply them effectively. These skills, which focus on critical thinking, will prepare students for college, career and beyond.  

Dalton Promotes a Positive School Environment

Our students teach one another the importance of PAWS!  PAWS is an easy way for Dalton Bobcats to remember the school-wide behavior expectations of:  be Positive, Act with respect, Work together and be Safe!

Great Nutrition Information

Check out our Nutrition Services' new web site which features good information on nutrition, exercise and keeping your children healthy.

Did you know...this generation of young people is the first that is forecast to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents? 1 in 3 or 4 children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime. The prevalence of overweight kids among 6 to 11 year olds has doubled in the past 20 years and tripled for teens.


Added Minimum Day

A minimum day has been added to the Dalton calendar.  Please mark your calendar for March 10.

Principal's Corner

Message from the Principal

Laura Clarke

I am thrilled to be back at Dalton School after several years in different administrative positions within Azusa Unified School District.  I enjoy working with the staff and community to build success for our students.  I am happy to meet with any parents who are considering enrolling their child at Dalton or who have any questions about our programs.

Dalton Elementary School is a student-centered campus focused on student success. The administration, teachers, support staff, and community work closely together to ensure every child has opportunities to succeed. We continuously work to expand our programs and to stay up-to-date with our instructional practices. 

The academic program is based on California State Standards and Common Core and provides rigorous challenges for students at all levels. Assessment data informs staff of the needs of students and guides adjustment to curriculum and lesson planning. Teachers and administration work closely together to identify the needs of each grade level along with the specific needs of individual students. The local community is very supportive of the programs at Dalton. Volunteers make a significant difference in supporting programs and special events at the site.
