Principal's Message

Dear Dillard Dragons,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Dillard Street Elementary School!

We consider it a great privilege to work with your children and look forward to fostering a challenging, nurturing, and fun learning environment. The staff at Dillard St. places an emphasis on collaborating with each other, so that students are receiving the best instruction possible. We believe that all students have the ability to succeed both academically and personally and look forward to working with students to accomplish this goal.

Community involvement is a key component to the success of students at Dillard Street. Our staff welcomes parent volunteers and community volunteers as key contributors to supporting the learning of our students. I would like to invite all to be a part of our school community. We welcome and encourage parent volunteers and hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities available to you. These opportunities include tutoring in the classroom, attending and volunteering at PTA events, working in classrooms, chaperoning field trips, student mentoring groups and more. Please contact your child’s teacher or our office staff for ways to become involved in our school. You can also find information on upcoming events, informative newsletters, and volunteer opportunities on the OCPS Dillard Street website.

It is with great pride and excitement that I am working with our talented educators, supportive parents, and amazing students this year. All of us at Dillard Street are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever! This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Dillard Street ES meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Here’s to a great school year!
