Dear Parents & Guardians,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Captain Jason M. Dahl Elementary School! As the incoming principal, I wanted to let share a little about myself and share plans for the upcoming school year.
I come to Dahl with fifteen years experience as an educator. As teacher, I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 7th grades. I have also supported my school community through previous work as a site instructional coach, vice principal and principal from my previous school district, Orchard School District in San Jose, CA.
It truly is an honor to serve as principal in the community that I reside in. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to get to know Dahl families. As you may know, this school year is starting out with distance learning. Therefore, we will have various online opportunities to talk about different school events and activities.
Dahl staff has been very busy this summer preparing for distance learning and making sure that the online classroom environment can best support each students' individual needs. It is going to a be a great year full of learning. As a parent myself, I know the impact that distance learning can have on a home. Dahl staff is here to support your family in distance learning, so please let us know if there is anything that we can do to help as we start up the new school year.
I look forward to partnering with you to make this a great year in your child's education so please feel free to reach out to me if you ever have any questions or concerns. On behalf of the Dahl staff, we look forward to seeing our Dahl students online for the first day of school, which will be on Monday, August 17th. More information will be sent to you soon. Go Pandas!
