The Denning Parent Group was challenged by the Benton Parent Group to take on the ALS ice bucket challenge.  We have accepted the challenge!  On Friday, September 12, all students will get the witness the event.  We are even going to add an extra twist to the challenge... for $1 students will be able to pour a mini bucket of water on ME!  All proceeds will go to ALS in honor of Terry Warren, former principal of Denning School, who passed away from this terrible disease.  Please donate to this worthy cause!

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.

Principal's Notes

Sorry it has taken so long to get September notes on.  We have had some website issues, but they have been taken care of.  Isn't technology great?

The year has been off the a great start so far.  We have a couple of events in September.  The 12th is midterm already and reports for 1st and 2nd grade will come home on the 17th.  Our fundraiser began on September 4th and will end on the 16th.  I am very excited about this company and hope everyone had a chance to taste their products at out open house.  On Friday, September 19th, teachers will be participating in a half day in-service.  Dismissal times will be Kindergarten 12:30, First Grade 12:40 and Second Grade 12:50.

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.
Look for on Facebook.  This page will grow as the year progresses.  Like us at Facebook.com/Denning.School
