Parent Teacher Organization
We are committed to improving our school community relations at Dexter Elementary. Therefore, we are excited to publicly invite all parents and stakeholders to a meeting to establish a "Parent Teacher Organization." We will be establishing and electing officers for that purpose during our initial meeting. The PTO will help to establish and/or approve the school’s "Vision" and "Mission" statements, as well as discuss expectations related to student’s, teacher’s and school’s goals/needs. I also plan to report the current state of affairs from the Principal’s perspective at each meeting.
If you have any questions regarding this issue, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
Kim Brumfield, Principal

Kindergarten through second grades visited the local Charlie Brown's Tree Farm. The students enjoyed face painting, storytelling, and picked out a tree for their classroom. Thanks to our school board for allowing them to go, and to the tree farm for making great memories.
Dexter Attendance Center celebrated Veterans Day on November 13, 2019. Veterans were asked to attend for recognition and a Thanksgiving meal was served in the cafeteria afterward. Kindergarten & 1st grades sang "Yankee Doodle" while the 2nd & 3rd grades sang "Grand Ole Flag" and "God Bless America." The 5th and 6th grade classes picked poems to read for the veterans.Thanks to all Dexter parents, community, and staff for a great program.
Dexter Booster club and staff showed its appreciation to Mrs. Deloris Breland for all of her hard work and dedication to Dexter Elementary. February is school board appreciation month so the booster club and staff gave Mrs. Breland a card and a gift to show how much she is appreciated. She is a dedicated member of the Dexter community as well as the school. Mrs. Breland not only serves on the school board but she also donates her time to Dexter by participating in events and donates monetary amounts to make these possible. We would also like to say thanks to all of our school board members and our superintendent who endeavor to make the schools in Walthall County a better place for our students.
Dexter Attendance Center participated in the food drive to replenish the local food pantry. The students were asked to bring nonperishable items to donate. This teaches students about giving back to their community and helping others in need. Hunger and poverty are things that students need to learn about and how they can help others. Thanks to all students and parents who donated.
