Principal's Message

Dear Dexter Community,

On behalf of Dexter faculty and staff, we welcome you to our 2022-2023 school year!  I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Dexter this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well!  As your principal, it is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. Our goal at Dexter is to work together to provide our students with a positive and highly effective learning environment. 


At Dexter we strive to ensure that each and every child has a safe, positive and academically rich learning environment. Dexter faculty and staff will continue our work to foster a community of collaboration to ensure student academic success and the social-emotional well-being of our students is maintained by sustaining a positive learning environment that meets the individual needs of each student.


Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. We encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership.

We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and effective learning environment. Student success is truly a team effort, and we look forward to working with you this year! I wish your family, and especially your child, great success this school year.  

Respectfully,  


Tony Garcia

Principal
