Paul Laurence Dunbar High Principal's Memo
Our Mission: To be the best Health Professions High School in the Country!
Our objectives this year: To improve GPA, increase college readiness and increase attendance.
By now, I pray that our families and our greater community are healing from Hurricane Sandy. I know some were able to take a much needed break because of the storm and others found themselves at the mercy of yet another burden filled emergency. The storm has caused us all to pause and give thanks for what we have and who we have surrounding us. These storms continue to remind us that we are resilient and strong.
Dunbar fared well during the storm. We had a little bit of water damage in our gym foyer, on our fourth floor and in our projection booth. Our amazing custodial staff has already replaced the tile and we are working to re-wrap the pipes. In addition, we have had to push back our report card release date. However, we know that no matter what happens, the business of educating our students will never cease!
This week we have several very important events occurring. They include our PTSA meeting, Family School Council/ Advisory Board Meeting, our Alumni Meeting and our Dreamers and Achievers Event. Each is significant and will require your attention. It is my hope that you will show your support by attending the events that pertain to you and your connection to the school. It will make all of the difference!
