Creating a Community of Learners and Leaders
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Dayton Elementary School! Dayton is one of 11 elementary schools in the Tippecanoe School Corporation. We house Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. We currently have around 420 students in our building.
We are nestled in the heart of Dayton surrounded by a community rich with tradition. We enjoy and appreciate the many partnerships we have with the Dayton community.
Our mission statement at Dayton is to “Create a Community of Learners and Leaders." We live this mission by providing quality academic instruction and implementing the Leader in Me Framework. Staff members are trained in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In addition, all students will experience instruction on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Students and will receive a leadership role in the school.
As part of our Academic Bill of Rights, students will receive 90 minutes of reading instruction, 60 minutes of math instruction, and at a minimum, 45 minutes of writing instruction. Students will also be exposed to the content areas of social studies and science.
Students will receive 30 minutes of Art, Technology, Music, Library, and Physical Education each week. We are thankful for our specials and the quality of education they bring to our students.
Students who need additional support as identified through our variety of assessments will receive support through our stellar Title I staff or our special education staff.
Communication is important to our school. Please like us on Facebook to receive information. In addition, we will communicate with biweekly newsletters from the office, newsletters from the classroom and our website. We do our best to keep this website up to date with pertinent information.
At Dayton Elementary, we are a family. We are excited to have you partner with us on this journey.
