Superintendent of Dwight Public Schools

Superintendent’s Message:

Dear Dwight Families,

Welcome to Dwight Public Schools, home of the Redbirds and Trojans! I am a proud alum of the DGS Class of 1995 and the DTHS Class of 1999. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the students, staff and families of Dwight as the Superintendent of Schools. 

The motto of the Dwight Public Schools has long been, “May the Welfare of Boys and Girls be our Chief Concern”. While that motto is decades old, that message holds more true today than maybe ever before. Our teachers, administrators, staff and boards of education all strive for the same objective- to make Dwight Public Schools the best place they possibly can be. 

I encourage all students and families to become involved in the school and community. Our schools offer many extracurricular activities and opportunities for our students to become involved. Being active in your school and community has been shown to assist students in being successful in not only school, but also in life. My hope is that all of our students in jr. high and high school become involved in at least one extracurricular, if not multiple. 

Successful schools and students are dependent on a positive home to school connection. While we will work tirelessly to serve our students, we need positive support systems at home as well. Be involved and know what is going on with your student and communicate with their teachers about how to be an educational partner. A positive home to school support system is what will truly make an impact on each of our students. 

I look forward to working with all of you to make our schools the safest and best schools they can possibly be.
