Welcome back! As summer continues, please make sure students are staying active by reading and writing. We look forward to another productive year at Dewey! We will be updating this page as we prepare for the beginning of school!
Dewey is always seeking volunteers to participate in school activities. Please contact Joyce Spann to fill out a volunteer application. If you are going to assist with field trips, you must have an application on file. The link below list the opportunities available at Dewey.
Dewey International Studies Elementary School is a unique school which integrates the study of world languages into the elementary curriculum. Dewey offers the following world languages: Japanese, German, French, and Spanish. Students begin world language studies at preschool with a rotation through each of the languages. Beginning in third grade, students specialize in a language of their choice. Additionally, each classroom at Dewey adopts a country of study to continue the international theme into the regular classroom. Teachers infuse the study of the adopted country into their standards-based curriculum.
Dewey offers a variety of resources including ELL, and Gifted. Dewey also has numerous partnerships including University of Missouri-St. Louis, Washington University, Webster University, Junior Achievement, Books & Badges, HomeWorks!, and OASIS.The PTO at Dewey is very active and involves our parents as partners at the school.
