Ms Cole's Bio

Greetings Wildcats and Happy New School Year! 


Similar to the beginning of a calendar year, a new school year brings promise and unlimited possibilities for success.  A promise to our students is that we will provide them with the best education to guarantee they are college and/or career ready.  In order to make good on our promise, all stakeholders must be willing to collaborate with each other.  Collaboration is a vital key to student success.  Our collaborative efforts will provide our students with unlimited possibilities to be successful.  This year we will focus on improving our collaborative efforts in the area of instruction, leadership, and family & community partnerships.  As always, our work will reflect our vision and mission statements found here. 


Here, at DHS, we value open and reciprocal communication between school and home.  Therefore, parents, it is imperative that your contact information, including email address is up to date in Infinite Campus.  This will ensure you receive communication from your child’s teachers and information from the principal via School Messenger.  Also, consider joining our amazing PTSO and subscribing to the DHS News E-Blast.  To join the PTSO and subscribe to the e-blast click here.  Additionally, you can follow me on Twitter @DunwoodyHS to receive quick announcements, highlights, and updates throughout the school year. 


As the school year progresses, there will be various opportunities for us to collaborate and communicate.  An upcoming opportunity is Curriculum Night on Thursday, September 20th from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  During Curriculum Night, you will have an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and hear the State of the School Address.  So please mark your calendars. 


As we strive to provide a positive and safe school environment, we must update and change the way we do some things.  We’ve added additional lockers in the building, enough for each student to have their own.  Therefore, all students will be issued a locker and will be required to place their book bags and large shoulder bags inside of their lockers.  We’ve also added an additional minute to the transition time between classes to provide students enough time to go to their lockers and make it to class on time.  Lastly, all visitors must check-in at the security desk, with a valid ID, before proceeding to the front office, attendance office or any other location in the building.  Thank you in advance for adhering to these safety procedures. 


I am excited about the new school year and all the promise and unlimited possibilities of success it will bring!  With an extraordinary faculty & staff and a supportive community, our students are poised to be lifelong learners and productive members of an increasingly diverse society.  I am honored to serve as your principal and I look forward to leading Dunwoody HS to even greater heights!
