Welcome to Denning Elementary School

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 April!  We are so glad at Denning School that the snow and cold weather are over.  Now we are beginning to gear up for the end of the year.  I was so busy with the carnival and annual reviews that I completely forgot to update the website.  We have now finished with the carnival and it was a great success!!

Upcoming events for April are:
10--2nd Grade Art Show-4-6pm in the gym
11--Early Dismissal for Spring Break-Kindergarten at 1:45, 1st Grade at 1:55, 2nd Grade at 2:05
14-21--Spring Break-NO SCHOOL
22--School Resumes
23--Dental Assembly
24--Town Wide Clean-up Assembly
28-May 2--Think Link Testing
30-May 2--Dental Safari

As you can see, April is a very busy month.  It is important that your child attends school every day and is well rested. As we begin to have warmer weather and spring activities begin, students tend to think that school is over.  Due to the amount of snow days this year, our last day of student attendance is June 2nd, and we still have a lot to accomplish.

If you need to speak with a teacher, you may send them a message through this website or you may call the school to make an appointment.

Remember you may also get text message updates and reminders by texting @denning to 618-937-8022.  I think this will be an invaluable way to relay messages to parents quickly.
Look for on Facebook.  This page will grow as the year progresses.  Like us at Facebook.com/Denning.School
