Our School is…

Building a Culture of Kindness

At DHES we are striving to build a culture of kindness. The character word of the month is announced daily and reinforced daily in the classroom during our Social-Emotional Learning time. 

Be the "I" in KIND

Our BE THE “I” IN KIND Movement was created as a tool to teach our children about the importance of being kind to one another. Our goal is to cultivate a learning environment where children learn what it means to share their kindness through everyday actions both big and small. Whether helping someone who’s hurting, pitching in to protect our planet, allowing others to go first, or learning to share, this strategy will spark conversations at home and in the classroom about the concepts of kindness, empathy, and compassion. We encourage our students to bring kindness along wherever they go!

A Word

From Our Principal

“At Dorothy Height Elementary School, our vision is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

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. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and invited to attend all school activities. On our calendar, you’ll note the monthly meeting dates and times.  Joining our Family-Friendly team is a wonderful way to have your ideas heard, as well as support the vision of our school. 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 productive learning environment. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year. Go Huskies!

– Dr. Lamont Sheffield
