Welcome Letter from Principal
Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year!
Dear Parents & Guardians,
We hope you had a wonderful summer and are excited to welcome back our students, families, and staff to Deans Mill School for the 2022-23 school year.
There will be a continued focus this year on accelerating learning for all students to help close gaps and address unfinished learning created from changes in our instructional model over the past few years. We will help students learn how to “Make their Mark” at Deans Mill School and in their lives by using a growth mindset and following the DMS WISH. To support students as they “Make their Mark”, we will focus on creating an environment that engages all students in their learning and helps them make connections to the world around them. The theme “Make their Mark” will be emphasized throughout the year as students participate in various activities and events that will help them build confidence, show creativity, and make a positive impact in their community.
Deans Mill School remains committed to providing a safe and fun learning environment for our students, staff, and school community. We look forward to partnering with parents and the community to provide an appropriately challenging, enriching, and fun educational environment for our students. Please stay tuned for information about some of our fun PTO events that bring our school community together.
We encourage parents to stay connected through our Parent Square notifications which will be our main mode of communicating activities and events throughout the school year. Please look to Parent Square for updates from Deans Mill School and Stonington Public Schools as we share information and events within the school community. We look forward to welcoming families back into our school community!
We are looking forward to an outstanding school year and helping students to “Make their Mark” at DMS this year!
Jenn & Tom
