Principal's Message
Welcome to Dohron Wilson Elementary!



Welcome to Dohron Wilson Elementary!  I'm excited to start my 4th year as your elementary principal!  The 2014-15 school year has brought many changes to DWE.  Due to the creation of the new middle school, the elementary now serves students in grades K-5.  Additionally, we house an ESC preschool unit for our very own Mechanicsburg students.  
 
This year, we welcome new staff to the following positions:
Margie Salyers, DWE Secretary
Jessica Allen, 1st Grade Teacher
Amanda Brown, 2nd Grade Teacher
Cortney Louge, Elementary Art Teacher
Katy Barry, Elementary Physical Education Teacher.
 
This school year brings about new changes in curriculum for all students in grades K-12 will be taught utilizing Ohio's New Learning Standards.  Additionally, we will be administering new online Next Generation Assessments to students in our building.  Click the following links to learn more about these statewide changes:  Ohio's New Learning Standards  & Next Generation Assessments.  Finally, our 4th & 5th grade will be implementing standards-based grade cards this school year!  We are excited by these changes and we encourage you to speak with both your child's teacher or myself to learn more about these changes.
 
I feel so blessed to be a part of Mechanicsburg Exempted Village Schools!  It has been a wonderful experience to get to know the awesome students, amazing staff, and fabulous families that make DWE the BEST elementary school in Champaign County!

We continue to show growth and success at DWE and we thank you, our families and community, for your ongoing support.  We can't do the work we do without you!

We want you to stay connected and up-to-date with events happening in our school.  This year we are encouraging our families to follow us on Twitter.  You can find us @DWEMcburg

Should you have any questions or need assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me through the elementary office or via email.  I look forward to parent and community feedback and involvement.
