Dear Dickinson Cowboy Families,

I am so excited to be your principal this 2017-2018 school year! Since being the Assistant Principal exactly 10 years ago, it is like coming home! I grew up in Grand Prairie and have worked in the district for 23 years. This community is my heart, passion and home. 
I already know we have awesome families, awesome students and awesome teachers!!!
A new year often brings change and new ideas. I am honored to say that we are beginning to plan for Dickinson Elementary as a School of Choice! We are focusing on technology, specifically Blended-Personalized learning. This is an extremely important and exciting time to be a part of Dickinson and this reform process. 
Lastly, I want you to know that I am here for you and your children. I promise to do my best to work with you to give your students the BEST education possible, addressing the whole student, not just their academics. 
This will be the best year and the best school!

Thank you,
Whitney Carlisle
