Dear Dennison Families:




  1. 1.1.the recognition and enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something.

"I smiled in appreciation"


valuing,treasuring,admiration,respect,regard,esteem,high opinion

"her appreciation of literature"



2.a full understanding of a situation.

"they have an appreciation of the needs of users"



"an appreciation of the difficulties involved"


As we start heading into the last five weeks of the 2018-2019 school year I would like to draw our focus to “appreciation”.  Staff appreciation week (next week), helps bring us full circle for our theme this year.  Staff has worked hard this year to define the components of excellence.  We have set goals that kept our work grounded in the Dennison model and philosophy and how excellence is a highly valued piece of who we are.  Students have been committed learners that explored how they can bring their personal best to the daily work of learning.  Parents and community members continue to value being highly involved in many ways.  Your contributions as volunteers, guest speakers, party planners, field trip chaperones, and through the many other acts of service done by PTA, Accountability, and DCSF keep us true to our grounding and reflective of how we can continue to be the best we can be for our students.


I appreciate each and every part of our “three legged stool”!  As the first definitions states:  I value, admire, respect you, and recognize that it takes all of us to contribute to excellence.  The second definition:  I acknowledge and recognize with full understanding that it “takes the village” to continue growing the components of excellence.


Your dedication and commitment have allowed me to grow as a leader and partner to best support this amazing work and school.


In true appreciation of all of you – thank you!

Pamela Yoder, Principal
