Let me start by saying what an absolute honor it is to take over leadership at Ralph Dunlap.  I have heard nothing but great things about the Dunlap community.  I will continue the tradition of working collaboratively with the staff and surrounding community to create an unmatched education for our students. 

At Dunlap we believe all children can achieve high levels of learning.  We also believe that students perform best when they feel confident about themselves and connected to a positive school environment. I will work tirelessly to guide our school toward continued academic success and further foster a supportive learning environment for our students.

One reason Dunlap has been so successful for many years is due to the strong partnerships shared between the school and the community it serves.  I am truly looking forward to working with the Ralph Dunlap families and staff members to provide the best possible educational program for our students.

The entire staff at Dunlap and I are ready and excited to embark on another school year of academic success with your children.  Thank you for all your support in making Ralph Dunlap a fantastic place for students to flourish.

Working together,

Jonathan Dollahite
