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

Dinkelmeyer Sixth Graders are Bridge Builders

Using about 200 wooden sticks, a tube of glue and their imaginations, sixth graders at John G. Dinkelmeyer Elementary School constructed bridges, then tested out their designs.

Students in Nicholas Assande’s and Matthew Puerta’s classes became engineers as they tackled the design challenge. First, they did research on different types of bridges including arch, cantilever, suspension and truss. They learned that the strongest shape is the triangle, so students built their own truss bridges, which make great use of triangles for structural support.

When the bridges were complete, it was time to test their durability. Two desks were spaced 14 inches apart, with each bridge spanning the distance. Textbooks were added on top until the bridge gave way, to see who came up with the best design.
