A Message From The Principal

Dear Dahlia Families,


Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year! Please check this website for school news and be sure to visit the Dahlia PTA website at www.dahliapta.org for weekly updates and to sign up for the informative PTA newsletter.


Our Dahlia staff strives to challenge children intellectually and help them grow socially and we have been working to create a challenging and supportive learning environment for all students. In addition to our focus on academic achievement, we are proud of our new Gardening partnership with Enrich L.A., and our computer lab on wheels which contains the latest Apple MacBook Pro computers and iPads. 


Dahlia Heights Elementary School is a special place and I hope you and your child will love it as much as I do. I look forward to great things happening this year!


Dove Love,


Mrs. Kristin Phelps-Shaw, Principal
