Welcome to a great year at Dearborn Park! I hope that everyone had a restful summer and is prepared to get to the business of learning. This year I am proud to announce we are now Dearborn Park International School. The transition has been a goal of mine for the past eight years. I am so proud of my staff and all of their diligence towards making this a reality. Please visit the About Our School tab and look under Dual Language Immersion tab, for more information. Last year our students worked extremely hard and the structured focus paid off. We achieved gains in many areas! We also received the Washington State Academic Achievement Award in the area of Math. It is a great time to be a dragon!

We will continue with Readers & Writers Workshop, Math In Focus, Arts Impact, Math Club and Pacific Science Center, Science on Wheels Programs. In addition, this year we will continue to implement Common Core Standards. As a school we have decided to focus on Race & Equity as a major part of our professional development. This goes along with our strategic work with the African American Male Initiative. This is really exciting! I look forward to sharing more about this with you.

Our district's strategic plan has three major goals:

  1. Ensure educational excellence and equity for every student.
  2. Improve systems district-wide to support academic outcomes and meet students' needs.
  3. Strengthen school, family and community engagement.

As families, you can help boost your child's academic growth and personal development at home. Consider these following ideas:

  • Talk with your child about the importance of being safe at school.
  • Establish a regular pattern for homework, playtime, meals and sleep.
  • Make sure your child attends school regularly and on time.
  • Continue to have open and honest communication with our school

I look forward to working with you and your child this year. With your help and cooperation, your child will receive an exemplary education at Dearborn Park International School. If you have concerns about your child's schooling at any time, please feel free to contact either the teacher or me. We welcome your input and inquiries.
