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

Welcome Back!
It is great to see those smiling faces on the first day.  Parents may walk their children to class on Tuesday and Wednesday.  By Thursday, the children should be able to come in on their own. There will be staff members stationed throughout the halls to help children through the first few weeks of school so don't worry, we will get them to class.

Look for on Facebook.  This page will grow as the year progresses.  Like us at Facebook.com/Denning.School.  Also, something new, we are now on Twitter (@denningschool).  I post several "tweets" per day to keep everyone informed of the day to day activities at Denning.  This is a opportunity to let you know of the great things we do here.

Vote for Denning School at www.givewith.target.com. Target will donate $1 to Denning School for each vote. Please tell all your friends and family to vote also!!  You may vote every 7 days!
