Hello Dumfries Dragons!
Happy last week of school. It is hard to believe it is the end of the school year all ready. Thank you so much for your hard work and support this school year. It has been a pleasure working with you and your child!
I will be hosting an additional Microsoft Teams Meeting, on Thursday, June 11th from 3:00-3:30 pm to provide parents information and resources to support their child's learning over the summer. If you cannot attend I will be sending all the information via email after the meeting.

Dear Kindergarten Families:

Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Shannon Best and I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher. This is my first year at Dumfries Elementary and my third year of teaching. This year, I cannot wait to work with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. In Kindergarten, we will have many hands-on opportunities to learn!

I am looking forward to building parent-teacher relationships this year! I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can send in a note, email me at bestsm@pwcs.edu, call the school at 703-221-3101, or send me a message on Class Dojo! For individual concerns, I will contact you by phone, send a note home, or email you if applicable.

Your involvement in your child’s education will make a large impact on their learning experience. I encourage you to spend time reading to your child daily. There will be opportunities throughout the school year to come into the classroom.

I am looking forward to building relationships and an exciting learning year with you and your child!


Shannon Best
