Dawson School Pledge

I believe in myself as a student and citizen of the Dawson School community. I am proud to be a Dawson Dolphin, and I pledge to be Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to learn every day.

        
The Mission of Dawson Elementary School is to develop each student's knowledge, skills and talents to the fullest, so that, as a participant in a community of learners, he/she can use these to make the world a better place for all.  


The following are our CORE VALUES and will permeate everything we do. It is our aim to develop a community that will:

  • Have personal courage, confidence, integrity, and respect for one another as people and as learners.
  • Demonstrate a daily commitment to learning. Individuals who achieve this will be curious, risk making a mistake, and take pride in a job well done.
  • Make good decisions; be effective communicators; be competent in group process and accept responsibility for their own behavior.
