Principal Karen Cumpata

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Dundee Highlands Elementary School!  Each year I get more excited for the opportunity to lead a school with such rich traditions and strong community involvement.  Although we will still have guidelines to follow, I am looking forward to welcoming back the students, staff and families of Dundee Highlands in August.  I am confident that with our dedication and commitment to our kids we will have a successful school year.

    As a school, we are looking forward to providing academic experiences for our students that are rigorous and relevant but also focusing on positive relationships. As your child moves from kindergarten to fifth grade at DHES, he or she will be building an important foundation for his or her later years.  Another vital component to the success of DHES is communication.  Through teacher Schoology pages, weekly email messages, monthly newsletters, the DHES Virtual Backpack, the DHES website and Friday Folders we strive to keep you informed.  Staying active in your child's education will make a difference.   

    As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who walks into Dundee Highlands, teachers, students and parents, are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.

    I am proud to be a part of the DHES family and share this upcoming school year with you and your child. Building a strong home-school partnership is important to me and vital to a child's successful educational journey. Thank you for allowing us to nurture, encourage, and challenge your child as we begin the 2021-2022 school year! 

    “With the right words, you can change the world.”
