Registration for returning families will be held at Ballard High School on
Monday, July 28th from 9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M. Returning families are welcome to visit any time during these hours to receive students' teacher assignments, gather transportation information,
sign up for PTA, purchase Spirit Wear, and learn more about Dunn's Chess Team/Club. 
The complete registration packets will not be distributed to families until the first day of school.

Families new to Dunn may participate in registration at Ballard High School on Monday, July 28th from 5:00 P.M. - 7:30 P.M. with an information session by Dr.Tracy Barber at 6:00 P.M.

If your family will be on vacation during these registration sessions, please feel free to call the school office (485-8240) beginning Tuesday, July 29th.

According to recent studies, on average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in math skills over the summer months. To prevent this from happening to your child, enroll in the Summer Math Challenge.MetaMetrics® is offering the Summer Math Challenge which is a free six-week e-mail-based math skills program centered around the Common Core State Standards. It is created for students who have completed 2nd through 5th grade. The program is designed to help students retain math skills learned during the current school year. It runs June 23rd - August 1st. 

To enroll your child in the  Summer Math Challenge, click here. 

Remember to print any certificates earned during the summer and deliver them to Mrs. KK at the start of the new school year. She will want to celebrate your successes on Spotlight on Success.
