    Dear Dwight-Englewood School Families,

    "" Website. 
    This new "" Website is only accessible to D-E students, parents/guardians, and faculty/staff, after Logging-In to MyD-E. 
    To access the new "" Website:
    > LogIn to MyD-E. 
    > You will find a link to the "Coping with COVID-19" Website on your Resource Board, and/or click .
    > If you need help to LogIn to MyD-E, please Email help@jssurfboards.com
    Together we have worked to curate and collect the various links that you will find on "Coping with COVID-19" which include resources for sound mental, physical, and emotional health. Also included are links supplied by parents/guardians and faculty/staff, who have shared them with us since the first few weeks of quarantining and physical distancing. 
    We welcome suggestions of new resources to provide to our extended community on our "Coping with COVID-19" Website.  Please send any links or new resources ideas to us via Email at: share@jssurfboards.com.

  • Welcome

    Dear Families, 

    The Lower School at Dwight-Englewood School is a vibrant and captivating place. Each classroom is filled with children and adults from very diverse families and experiences. Our primary focus is on the academic, social-emotional and physical growth and success of the children in our care. Daily, the dedicated faculty and staff at Dwight-Englewood School work to foster an environment of engagement that allows our students to encounter rich academic tasks. The students also have the opportunity to explore and to learn with, and from, one another. Each day, our children are astir with great ideas and perspectives about the work that they encounter throughout the school day. These lessons and experiences seek to draw on each child’s creativity. At various times during the school day, students are provided with opportunities to think critically and to receive guidance and support as they demonstrate perseverance through challenging tasks. The full experience in the Lower School helps our students to know that they can, and will, make a difference in our ever-changing world. 

    I invite you to learn more about the Lower School.
