In the time I have been Principal of the Frank J. Dugan Elementary School, I have witnessed first hand the significant benefits that come to children when their teachers and parents work together to support and promote a cohesive educational program. Built around the shared vision that all students can learn, our educational program illustrates our commitment to learning, our belief that every child can reach their personal potential and grow to become the best version of themselves.
Our Dugan faculty and staff are committed to their students’ learning; approaching each day as an opportunity to reach out to kids and cultivate their unique gifts, strengthen their bodies, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and become people of character. There is no greater gift we can give our students than giving each child the necessary tools to realize their hopes and dreams. Each day our parents and staff work together to help our kids brings us closer to living our vision; a vision where students are self-directed learners, effective communicators, creative and practical problem solvers, responsible and involved citizens, and effective team members.
The Dugan community circle extends outward to embrace our parents. Through our partnership with the Dugan PTA, our children have experienced cultural programs and family-fun events and everything in between. Perhaps most importantly, as our PTA generously gives of their time and talent; they provide a model of giving for our students, a model that inspires and strengthens our school climate.
I am truly honored to serve the Dugan School family and the Marlboro community. On behalf of all the Dugan Dragons, I invite you to stop by and visit and share in the warmth of our learning community. Please know my door is always open and I welcome opportunities to get know you and everyone within Dugan’s family circle.
