    Many of our trees were cut down over summer because branches were falling during windy days.   Some of our 5th graders have volunteered to design a plan to landscape and plant flowers and new trees.   Volunteers will be necessary when we start construction.  The fifth grade volunteers are very excited and we are delighted to document their progress in the photo gallary section on this webpage.

About 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.
