Coffee with the Principal
Parent participation is critical for the success of Dalton School in meeting the needs of our students. Please join me on Thursday, August 25 for our first "Coffee with the Principal" to find out more about our school and opportunities to help make our wonderful school even better! The "Coffee" is scheduled for the morning (for our Spanish speaking parents) at 8:15 and one in the evening (for our English speaking parents) at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. I look forward to meeting with you! -Laura Clarke, School Principal
Back to School Night
Dalton's Back-to-School Night will be taking place from 5:30-7:00 p.m. on September 8. Please join us and spend some time meeting your child's teacher, receiving important information and supporting Dalton School! The event will begin in the school cafeteria and will include a general overview and introduction, followed by a release and visit to the classrooms.
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.
Message from the Principal
I am thrilled to be back at Dalton School after several years in different administrative positions within Azusa Unified School District. I look forward to working with the staff and community to build success for our students. I would be 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.
