 Message from Principal Perrin

Welcome to the start of the 2015-2016 School Year

"When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts." - Dalai Lama 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to a new, exciting year at P.L. Dunbar School! I hope that the summer months have provided you with some rest, relaxation, and an opportunity to rejuvenate.  During the summer months we have been undergoing transition as we prepare to the open the doors for our scholars. This academic year we will continue to seek excellence in all we do. Our focus is all things academic, and the continued pursuit of stabilizing a climate and culture which maximizes learning for all students. We are welcoming a plethora of other dedicated educators to the P.L. Dunbar Family, and a new instructional model under the guidance of Cooperative Educational Services. Excellence is the standard for all of our work and our motivation is fueled by our main message “Every Child, Every Chance, Everyday”.

 We will offer a wide variety of quality programs to meet the needs of each scholar. We have a highly qualified faculty to serve the academic needs of our scholars and a support staff who is here to help provide a safe and caring environment for each individual who is part of our school community.

 Our school community will help provide the framework for individual and school success by constantly referring to following tenets:

All scholars, parents (guardians), school staff, and community must share responsibility and be engaged in the learning process for academic success.

Positive parental attitudes and involvement improve scholar success and increase scholar interest, motivation, and achievement.

Everyone associated with Dunbar School and its programs will be treated with respect at all times.

All students should be provided a safe, orderly, and positive learning environment.

Excellence is our expectation.

All P.L. Dunbar scholars can learn and achieve!

As Principal of P.L. Dunbar School, I look forward to working with you all during the upcoming school year!


Alyshia N. Perrin
