Welcome to Denning Elementary School

All schools in West Frankfort District #168 are required by the state to administer the 5 Essentials survey to teachers, students (grades 6-12), and community members for the 2014-15 school year. Survey results will be reported publically on the 2015 State School Report Card website and the full 5Essentials reports will be released in the fall. This opportunity allows you to share your views on important elements of school effectiveness.  Please take this survey below.

Parent Survey

Teacher 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.

School Announcements
Principal's Notes

Spring is upon us and the busy end of the school year is approaching fast.  The kiddos are excited about spring break and end of the year plays, performances, and field trips.  Please stress to your child the importance of working hard in the last nine weeks in order to be prepared for next year!

Denning will again hold Early Bird registration on May 25, 26 and 27.  Please take advantage of this if at all possible to help us prepare for classes in the 2016-2017 school year.

Remember, if you should have any questions please feel free to contact us in the office.  Also, check your child's backpack frequently for important papers and look for our newsletter on the first of each month to keep up with what will be happening at Denning.
