PTA Reflections Contest 2017

Within Reach: An Opportunity to Shine

Every year our Dilworth PTA sponsors the National PTA Reflections contest for our school.  This year the theme is “Within Reach.”  In conjunction with this theme, students are encouraged to showcase their creativity through writing, art, music, dance, photography, and/or film.  Each student may submit more than one contest entry.  There are trophies, ribbons, and even prizes just for entering, plus there is extra credit available in various grade level classes.  More importantly, Reflections fosters creativity and gives children a much-needed chance to express their thoughts, emotions, and viewpoints.

This week, Ms. Redmon, our Extended Learning Program (ELP) teacher, facilitated a critical thinking “escape room” style activity with every class at Dilworth to introduce the contest and this year’s theme.  Students solved a series of clues to open a locked box.  Upon opening the box, they watched the encased video and received this year’s contest entry forms (and a little Jolly Rancher).  It was wonderful to see students come alive with ideas to enter in the contest. 

This year we’d like everyone in the school K-6 to participate.  Please encourage your child’s creativity by helping them enter the Reflection contest.  Entries are due by October 12.

Dilworth Welcomes Our Newest Dragons: Principal Chatterton and Several New Teachers

This year, we welcome Jeremy Chatterton as our new Dilworth Elementary principal.  This is Mr. Chatterton’s first appointment as an elementary principal; he has worked at West High and Highland High as an assistant principal.  He also taught Math at Judge Memorial High School and was the girls’ basketball coach at both Judge and Highland High.  Mr. Chatterton has rolled up his sleeves and gone out of his way to get to know the faculty and staff to make the first day of school a success!  The students were excited to meet Mr. Chatterton at our annual “Meet the Teacher” event on Friday, August 19.  He greeted the student body Monday with a morning announcement welcoming us all to the first day of school and encouraged us all to “Ignite our Dragon Fire!”  We look forward to a great year with Mr. Chatterton at the helm. 

We also welcome new teachers to the Dilworth Staff:  Kelly Poulson joins us from Edison Elementary and will be teaching PM Kindergarten.  Britt Rose moved from Newman Elementary and is teaching fifth grade. Elizabeth (Wig) Arnold came to Dilworth from North Star Elementary to teach Full-day Kindergarten. Karen Sorensen will be teaching Resource at both Dilworth and Hawthorne Elementary; and our new Special Needs Life Skills teacher is Kalinda Dobson.   We are excited to have these fabulous teachers join our Dilworth team.
