Attention Dunbar Families:
Based on the most recent updates from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, the School District of Philadelphia has determined that all schools will remain fully virtual until further notice. See a letter from Superintendent Hite here
Thank you for your flexibility as we navigate these unprecedented times.
Message from the Principal
Dear Dunbar Family:
Welcome Back! Happy New School Year to all of you! We have all been thrust into a new normal with challenges and opportunities for growth, learning and creative expansion. We will forge ahead into this new virtual learning world and create the best academic and social-emotional environment we can provide our scholars.
You have made the right choice to join or return to the Paul Laurence Dunbar Academy. We are a family built on the belief that success is our only option. All children will show academic growth and all adults will tirelessly contribute to their overall success.
Please remember that each of us makes the difference in our P. L. Dunbar family. “Destination Excellence” will continue to be fueled by our love for children, collaborative efforts and determination.
Our vision for Dunbar Academy incorporates five essentials. Let them guide your practice throughout this school year.
FAMILIES ARE OUR PARTNERS
TEACHERS ARE LEADERS AND STUDENT ADVOCATES
STUDENTS ARE HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE PREPARED – PRE-K THROUGH GRADE 8
MUTUAL RESPECT AND ACCOUNTABILITY IS FOSTERED
PRIDE IN OUR EFFORTS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Let’s work together for the academic, social and emotional growth of our children.
Have a successful year.
