Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2022 - 2023 school year!

In my ninth year as principal, I continue to be overwhelmed with pride in all that our school community accomplishes by working together! 

As we gear up for a new school year, we are thrilled to announce the completion of a brand new playground for our students to enjoy! We are grateful for the support of the Durham Nockamixon PTA partnered with generous donations from our community sponsors who have brought this incredible project to fruition.  We look forward to holding ribbon cutting and dedication ceremonies to celebrate this incredible accomplishment!

Please join me in congratulating the following staff members as they begin to work in their new roles:

We are thrilled to welcome the following professionals to our DN Team: 

*  Dr. Jennifer MacDonald, PAL/ELD

*  Bridge Sayer, 3rd Grade (Math/Science/SS)

*  Zach Ziegenfuss, 4th Grade (ELA)

Stay tuned for further announcements pertaining to additional DN team members!

Familiar Faces In New Places on our DN Team:

*  Becky Landis, Kindergarten

*  Bekah Masthay, 1st Grade

*  Marisa Moyer, Kindergarten LTS

*  Megan O’Boyle, 2nd Grade

We are proud of the recognition we received from the state of Pennsylvania for our continued work with School Wide Positive Behavior in the area of Sustaining Implementation with Fidelity  while also maintaining distinction as a school with No Place For Hate. 

We believe that it is our responsibility to create a warm welcoming environment where positive interactions through respect, responsibility, safety, and perseverance are valued, modeled and encouraged by all. Communicating as a collaborative team, the faculty and staff of Durham Nockamixon Elementary School put children first as they are at the center of everything we do.
