We’re glad that you have chosen to invest a few minutes to become acquainted with the wonderful activities and events currently impacting the students, parents and staff at Dennis Elementary. Three years ago, Dennis received widespread media coverage related to the incredible 100th year anniversary celebration. Likewise, the community is excited about the ongoing planning as we transition to the Dennis Lab School. Truly a “unique educational opportunity” is being made available to our young students!
