Principal's Message

I am so excited for this year at RH Dana Elementary School! This year there will be a lot of change: the Spanish dual immersion program continues to grow, mandatory uniforms continue with the PTA helping with uniforms, and our focus is on marine biology and being good environmental stewards.  We plan to start building a garden so we can learn about gardening and growing our own food.   
Our staff is ready and excited for a great year. We continue to grow as a staff and grow together to help our scholars excel in all areas of their young lives.  Our mission statement is We are Bilingual, Biliterate, Multicultural, and Environmentally Ethical Global Citizens.  We can't wait to live our mission statement each and every day! 
Here is to a great year ahead!  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at: or drop by my office.  My door is always open!
