Welcome to Dogwood Elementary

Welcome to Dogwood Elementary School

       The mission of Dogwood Elementary School is to provide a meaningful, diverse foundation where our students become academically and socially driven lifelong learners through the effective use of 21st century technology and tools. To carry out our mission, we will create and maintain a safe, caring, supportive, and productive educational community where as partners we work toward our shared goal of "Success for All Students." All of our teachers at Dogwood Elementary School are highly qualified and with their help we will ensure that all children meet the challenging state academic standards.

Our shared vision guides the Dogwood Elementary School community learning journey. Recognizing the power of human potential in a school culture that is characterized by mutual respect, we seek to develop and provide an atmosphere that nurtures productive and effective learners. Adults model positive attitudes fundamental to lifelong learning, civil responsibility, and the development of healthy social relationships.
