Principal's Message

Dear Families and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to the 2018-2019 school year! I’m honored to serve as the proud principal of William Dean Jr. Elementary School. I am excited about the journey ahead. With your partnership and support we will thrive as one of the supreme schools of the Holmes County Consolidated School District.

The William Dean Jr. Elementary School’s motto is “Every Student Matters—Every Moment Counts”. This motto will guide us to the successes that lie ahead. We will engage students in standards driven, technology infused instruction daily. We will always encourage students to do their absolute best at all times. We will keep an open line of communication with all parents and stakeholders. Always keeping a level of transparency with the focus to do better and be the very best.

As the instructional leader of WDJE, I have three goals I am striving to accomplish with your support:

1. Increase student achievement. Through quality instruction from the most qualified teachers and support staff. Providing students with ongoing interventions and support. Keeping students engaged through exciting and innovative lessons each and every day.

2. Ensuring that students have an environment that is safe and conducive to learning. This will allow us to receive the best student outcomes possible. Building better relationships with our students by being concerned and remaining concerned about them throughout this school year and beyond.

3. Building a stronger Community/School Culture. We will do this by providing parents with the opportunity to be a part of the decision making process. Allowing the community voices to be heard. Partnering with our parents, for a better vision for our students. Providing parents with the necessary resources and support to build our “Pockets of Parent Successes”.

The staff and I know the importance of a solid educational foundation for our students. We appreciate our parents, board members and superintendent for the opportunity to serve the boys and girls of this community. We take on this mission with courage and attentiveness. We will continue to work hard daily so the impact is great for all students. We know that the parents are our key to student hearts and minds and we know with your support my staff and I will be able to unlock both.

I am fortunate to lead such an outstanding school community and team, and I look forward to what I know will be a gratifying and triumphant school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns or input at any time.

Proud to be a Colt!

Bridgett Wheaton, Ed.S.
