From the Principal

It is hard to believe that we have come to the end of this crazy year!  I would like to thank all students, staff and families for the incredible work everyone did in following our health and safety protocols, being engaged in teaching and learning, and supporting one another through the pandemic.  I am so proud of the resilience and endurance that was shown.  Our hope, and goal, is to return in the fall as close to normal as possible.  We look forward to that day!  

Below is some important information for the close of the school year:

  • A reminder that Wednesday June 9th is district wide step up day.  Pre-K students will go to either Russell or Memorial on that day.  4th grade students will go to the middle school.  There will be NO school for 3rd grade students.
  • All hybrid student technology will be turned in on the 7th and 8th.  Please make sure to bring your iPad, charger and case.  Remote student technology will be collected on a day set by your teacher for material drop off.
  • Report cards will be mailed AFTER school gets out.
  • Class placements for 3rd to 4th grade will be sent AFTER August 1st.

I hope everyone has a fantastic summer with time to rest, relax and rejuvenate!

From the Guidance Office

The school year is coming to an end and as I reflect on this past year, I can’t help but believe that Dunn students, parents, and staff are truly unique! The school year has been filled with unknowns, changes, and lots of “what-ifs”. However, the Dunn community has handled all of these unknowns with grace and courage. I have enjoyed being a part of this community and getting to know your children. 

Here is a schedule of our end-of-the-year step-up day plans. Dunn 4th graders will attend the step-up day on Wednesday at the Middle School, and PreK students will attend a step-up day at either Memorial or Russell Schools. Dunn classrooms will be hosting incoming 3rd graders from Russell and Memorial Schools on Wednesday. 

I hope our outgoing 4th graders have a successful and exciting transition to Middle School and PreK students continue to spread their joy in their respective schools. Miss Lindsay will be returning to Dunn as the Guidance Counselor in the fall.  Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your child’s school year, and I wish you a wonderful summer. 

Be well, Ms. Abby

From the Music Room

From Mrs. Patterson:

The white recorders passed out earlier in the year are a gift from the district and do not need to be returned.  Third graders will need them for next year’s music classes.  Also attached is information about 5th grade band.  

Have a good summer everyone, and thank you for all your support this year!

To: Parents of 4th graders

From: Ms. Whitney, GNG Middle School Chorus Teacher

At GNGMS we believe everyone can learn to sing!  Chorus is a great opportunity for students who love to sing or want to learn how.  All incoming 5th graders are welcome and there are no auditions.  In September, there will be a few days for kids to try chorus to see if they like it.  Chorus is an excellent place for kids to resocialize post-covid.  We build valuable teamwork skills in a non-competitive environment, and everyone gets to participate 100% of the time!  If you have any questions, please reach out:  657-4994 or  

I can’t wait to sing with you, Dunn students!   ~ Ms. Whitney
