Dear John G. Dinkelmeyer Families,

It is my pleasure to write to you as the Principal of John G. Dinkelmeyer School. It is an honor and a great privilege to lead this incredible learning community on behalf of your children. As a mother of three young children, and an educational leader, I believe that every child deserves to be treated with respect and love. Leading with love, is vitally important in this day and age and doing so means that we recognize and validate the talents of each child as we give each learner what he/she needs to experience a happy, healthy and fulfilling elementary school experience. 
Our school is filled with teachers, faculty and staff that inspire me each day. Our faculty and staff are passionate educators and dedicated to each student's success and personal growth. We are committed to making our school a safe, enjoyable and memorable experience for all. We want our learners to be thinkers, problem solvers, joyful readers and writers, lifelong learners and great leaders in our community. We want each learner here to know that they are valued and that they have great potential.
Your children are treasured here! On behalf of the John G. Dinkemeyer faculty and staff, I thank you for the trust you put in our school as you share your children with us.
Danica Brugge

Shooting Hoops for Healthy Hearts at Dinkelmeyer

As basketballs sailed through hoops at John G. Dinkelmeyer Elementary School in the North Bellmore School District, students were not only taking care of their own hearts, but were helping stomp out heart disease.

During the week of Feb. 22-26, students took part in Hoops for Heart, part of the American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge. Physical education teacher Jim Mulvey set up different basketball skill stations around the gym. Activities included Around the World, a game where they took shots from different spots, and dribbling relay races.

Students could also make voluntary contributions to the American Heart Association, and the school raised about $650. Mr. Mulvey said Hoops for Heart is an annual activity at Dinkelmeyer to help students understand the importance of staying healthy and fit as well as helping others through charitable acts.
