Welcome to Denning Elementary School

Parent Survey

Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community.

Parents need to ensure that the office has accurate addresses, phone numbers and emergency contacts on file. It is very important for parents/guardians to notify the office when a student has moved or a phone number has been changed. Emergencies sometimes arise and we may need to contact a parent or guardian.

Principal's Notes

Our ice bucket challenge was a success!! Denning School collected $217 that we have donated to ALS in honor of former principal Terry Warren.  With that wonderful donation also came 217 buckets of water dumped on my head!!  It was worth it and the kids loved it!

Our Denning Students also met the challenge in helping collect food for the TV3 "Sack Hunger" food drive as the Redbird football game (The Birds beat the Rangers 26-21, way to go Birds!)  We showed everyone what Denning School was made of as Denning collected and donated 623 food items.  (the High School collected 293, Junior High 106, and FIS 408)  Way to step up Denning!!

This will be a very busy month at Denning, so expect to see a lot of excitement from your children.  We have picture day on October 1st--always exciting, the Book Fair October 6-10, Fire prevention week October 6-10, Homecoming parade early dismissal on October 10.  Plus all the fun of Fall and the cooler weather--What a Month!!

Remember you may also get text message updates and reminders by texting @denning to 618-912-4113.  I think this will be an invaluable way to relay messages to parents quickly.
