Dillsboro Elementary School | All-Day Preschool Letter of Interest

Unfortunately, Dillsboro Elementary will not be offering the current Readiness Kindergarten program for the 2018-19 school year due to cuts in funding from the State. We are currently exploring the option of adding a full-day preschool program for 4-year-olds who will be entering kindergarten the following year.  The student must be four years of age and not turn five until August 1, 2018 or later. The goal of the preschool program would be to help ease your child’s transition into a school routine, with an emphasis on developing skills necessary for kindergarten readiness.

Before we move forward with plans to add a preschool program, I would like to determine if there is enough interest from the families in our community.

If implemented, the preschool program would follow the same calendar as the rest of Dillsboro Elementary and would run the same time as a regular school day (from approximately 7:55 a.m. to 3:10 p.m.). The program would incorporate both education and play and the cost to parents/caregivers would be $20 per day.

If you would be interested in enrolling your child in this full-day preschool program next year, please go to the following site http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F044CABAD2BABF85-20182019. The deadline is April 1, 2018 to express interest. Telling us you’re interested does not in any way commit you to enrolling your child next year and there is no certainty the program will even be offered. It is simply something we are exploring to better serve the needs of our local families.

Thank you for your time,

Sam Melton
Principal, Dillsboro Elementary School

Administration

With leadership from Superintendent Dr. John Mehrle, the South Dearborn Community School Corporation educators are energized to continue raising the bar in education. Our administrators lead the strategic vision for the school and determine our overarching curriculum. We are fortunate to have such a strong leadership team at the helm at Dillsboro, and throughout the South Dearborn Community School Corporation.

Our school administrators work closely together to ensure your child's educational experience is exceptional from their first day of Kindergarten through their last day of high school.
