Principal's Welcome

Mrs.  Stephanie Sherwood


Welcome to Dutch Valley Elementary School!  I am excited to be part of this school and part of this wonderful community.  It is my mission to make sure all students have a wonderful, personalized experience the entire time they are students at DVES!  I hope that you can also be a part of the experience.  Please know that I have an open door policy and I try to make myself available to parents as much as possible to discuss concerns, problems or share the wonderful things going on!  

There are lots of ways you can support your student, even if you can't be involved in activities at school.  The best way you can get involved is by talking to your child and by checking their backpacks regularly to ensure you have the most current information.  Watch for weekly newsletters, graded papers, event notifications and other items that we will send home.  We want everyone to be informed on all the things going on!!  Also, please review the school rules with your student and talk to them about their behavior.  We have implemented a school wide positive behavior system that we are hoping helps promote good decision making.  You can find our school rules on the home page.  Please let us know if you have questions, concerns or if you want to be involved!  We will find opportunities for you. 

Thank you for your support!!!  It's an awesome time to be a Pioneer!!!!
