Principal's Corner

A word from Principal Bolen

Dear Staff, Parents and Students,

Happy New Year and a New Semester at Duncan Elementary School!

Last semester was marked with some awesome accomplishments that demonstrated our values and talents, and some craziness that challenged and stretched us and made us stronger as a school family. We are grateful for all of it because, at the end of the semester, we were stronger, smarter, and better equipped to face other challenges and opportunities which will undoubtedly occur. Like the quote says: “If the Roots are Deep and Strong, the Tree Needn’t Worry About the Wind.”

I would like to highlight just a few of our celebrations and many improvements to our campus and structure. We all got to experience the “Total” Solar Eclipse (65% in Duncan) which hasn’t happened in 35 years. We had the Wren Family donate another “Save a Skyler” bench to the school which was placed at the Primary School Side adjacent to the playground as well as giving a fantastic explanation and dedication session. We had the very well-attended Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for the Duncan Elementary School Garden. Our Football Team earned “Runner-Up” for Eastern Arizona Jr. High Athletic Association 8-Man football under the new coaching staff. The Girls Volleyball team travelled to Tucson and got to attend a U of A Volleyball game, meet the team, and make a cheer tunnel as the team took the court. Our grounds have drastically improved and even gotten greener thanks to the dedicated efforts of Mr. Hileman. We have had a lot of traditions continue and excellent accomplishments which are too many to list. Overall we have a lot to be proud of and it is a good steppingstone from which we will leap ahead and continue to more forward toward the end of the school year.

Something all should be aware of is the campus improvement projects which will begin in the next few months. The work on the septic system improvements and the Air Conditioning/Roofing project at the Brubaker Gym and Jr. High Classrooms will begin shortly. We ask for your continued support and patience as we work around these projects keeping in mind that we are working toward a cleaner, safer, and updated campus for the benefit of the students and employees at Duncan Elementary School.

Second semester will be full of a lot of learning, Athletic Events, Spelling Bee’s, Testing, Competitions, and more Celebrations. Something I have always loved and enjoyed about education and school is that there is always something to look forward to and always something great to remember. 

Thank you for your support of Duncan Elementary School.
