Bikes and Surveys

Ivan learns to ride on two wheels.

At the end of the day, Ivan announced that he'd figured out how to ride on two wheels. He's a self-taught cyclist now.

Miss Roach captured some of the goings-on today in her report on the chart.

After drawing a hen we did the Chicken Dance. Really.

At a meeting after school this afternoon we talked about a parent survey we did last year. It is giving us much food for thought.

The survey results have sparked our interest in doing a better job with helping all those who are new to the Dunham School Community to feel welcome and well acquainted with our school and its programs.

Kindergarten parents have a lot of useful information to help us with this project. I'll be working on this in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned.

I think Dunham does a great job making new people feel welcome.We have already met some really great employees and parents. I guess because we started out in a different school/district I can see HUGE differences in the overall approach to making people feel welcome. We was lucky in that we were able to see it in action by going to one school and then another. Everyone we have met from the school secretary, to the principal to the teachers and even daycare workers have seemed so invested in the students and the personal relationships. Very refreshing!
