Opportunities for Parents
Dalton is committed to developing partnerships with parents and providing educational opportunities. Here are just a few of the exciting offerings Dalton has to involve our community:
Veteran's Day Ceremony
Dalton students honored community veterans with a beautiful tribute of song, sentiments and patriotic spirit.
APU Science Partnership
APU college students, under the direction of Dr. Tallman, collaborated with Dalton students to learn about the circulatory system. Action research and inquiry produced excellent learning outcomes! Activities included
Halloween Zany Zumba Night
The PTA sponsored a wonderful event at Dalton for families and staff to get together and enjoy games, food and Zumba in our Halloween costumes. Everyone had a great time!
Walk to School Day
Dalton and the Azusa Police Department partnered up for Walk to School Day. It was a great opportunity for students to learn safe, healthy habits and join together as a community.
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!

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
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.
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 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.
