Principal's Message

Dear Dewey Families,


Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! 


The first day of school is Thursday 8/22.

School Hours are 8:20-2:35, Dual Language is 8:20-3:30. 


We have a lot of exciting things happening this year. Our Spanish Dual Language+ program continues to grow with the addition of two 1st Grade classes. This year marks our fourth year as a Computer Science School. To celebrate we will be opening a Makerspace! The Makerspace will be a lab for collaboration and computer science activities, such as robotics. 

We also welcome some new staff! 

Ms. Ardon will be teaching 1st Grade.

Mr. Phil is joining us as our night custodian. 

Ms. Mary is our new yard supervisor.

Mr. Bonilla Is our new school psychologist. 

Ms. Carlos is our new EL interventionist.

This year, the theme is Make a Difference. At Dewey, we believe that everyone can make a difference. The parents, teachers, staff, and students at Dewey all work together to make a difference. How can you make a difference at Dewey? Look for the many ways you can make a difference throughout the school year!

If there is anything I can ever do to help you or your student(s) please let me know. I want to partner with the Dewey parents! Our shared commitment to our student’s academic growth will ultimately lead to success!

I look forward to seeing everyone on the first day! 


Ms. Roach, Principal
