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

Fortunately, November does not seem as busy as October!  We will have our first assembly when the Miners Baseball Team visit Denning for an anti-bullying assembly.  We have two early dismissals:  one for midterms on the 13th and we always get out early for Thanksgiving Break and that dismissal will be on the 24th.  We will be off in honor of Veteran's Day on the 11th and for Thanksgiving on the 25th, 26th, and 27th.

Thanks to all the parents that were able to attend Parent/Teacher conferences.  It is so important to keep the lines of communication open. 

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.
