WELCOME TO DENNIS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Author Visits Dennis Elementary
Brian P. Cleary, the bow-tie wearing, self-described “word nerd,” and children’s book author, visited Dennis Elementary on Wednesday, December 2. As a humorist, poet, and author, Brian P Cleary specializes in encouraging students to see the wonder in words. With more than one million copies of his titles in print, Cleary’s books make language fun for students. His visit to the school was sponsored through the BATS program (bringing authors to schools). The BATS program brings authors to Dennis Elementary as well as Waynesville and Clinton Massie schools each year.
Words of Gratitude at Dennis Elementary
What started as a teacher appreciation idea from PTO volunteers at Dennis Elementary quickly turned into a wall of thanks. The "tree" has grown from a few "leaves" to hundreds of thank you notes. In the main hallway at Dennis, you can see how the students, staff, and volunteers at Dennis are coming together in November to show gratitude to all of the people who make Dennis a great school.
Student Council Swearing In
