Message from Our Principal
Welcome to Dogwood Elementary!

Home of the Dolphins!

I am so excited to join the Dogwood family this year! I am honored to be at school with the most amazing staff, students, parents and community. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes a community to have an amazing school to teach our children in! Read more...
Student Feature: Isabel Cyriac
Our student spotlight this month is fifth grader, Isabel Cyriac.  Isabel was born in Denver, Colorado but moved to Germantown in 2010.  This is her 2nd year at Dogwood Elementary.  She is in Student Ambassadors, is a member of the Honor Choir, and is on the Math competition team. Her favorite subjects are Science and Mathematics, and her favorite class is Music. She loves to sing and play the piano.
Her future goals involve attending either law school or medical school. She also plans to maintain her passion for singing and dancing .  Dogwood is a positive place for Isabel.  "I feel like I should have come to Dogwood much earlier. The teachers are super nice. I have made some awesome friends. There is always a fun event coming up like crazy chemist day, parties, concerts, etc."

We're so glad you're at Dogwood, Isabel!
Teacher Feature: Angela Martin, P.E.
Ms. Angela Martin is one of the unsung heroes of Dogwood Elementary.  She has taught Physical Education here for nearly 20 years.  She also runs the Safety Patrol program, and she and Mrs. Guntharp were awarded the highest fund raising for Jump Rope for Hearts for the State of Tennessee last year.  If you're around Ms. Martin long, you'll see that she has a sweet and fun disposition.  
Ms. Martin is the amazing single parent of three beautiful daughters, two twins at Collierville High and one in college.  She loves spending time with her family, making memories.  She loves how the students get excited about P.E.,  and all of the different games and skills she gets to teach. Everyday she will hear a student say, "I can't wait to come to PE today!!!" What other job provides motivation like that?

Her favorite memories at Dogwood are from events like Sock Hop, Pioneer Day, Western Day, and of course Field Day.  She enjoys seeing the students perform for their parents and watching how much the parents enjoy it as well.  One of her favorite days of all time was Water Day. The students wore swimsuits to school.  That day, they had two water slides and a field with sprinklers and beach balls.  The fire department came and sprayed the students from the top of their truck ladder, and they had a snow cone truck...BEST DAY EVER! 

Thanks, Ms. Martin for all you do at Dogwood!
