Message from Our Principal
Welcome to Dynard Elementary School! We remain the best kept secret of St. Mary’s County Public Schools. Dynard is nestled in the quiet 7th District Community, but is comprised of the most dedicated group of students and staff. We pride ourselves as being a community of learners, both students and adults alike.
We look forward to another year of progressive academic achievement as we fully implement the Maryland Common Core State Curriculum. While fostering character education in our students, our staff and students continuously strive to model and develop excellent character. The Dynard Dragons are on fire with F.L.A.M.E.-Focus, Leadership, Achievement, Manners and Excellence! Those are the five tenets on which we are framing our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, or P.B.I.S implementation. We proudly praise and recognize our students when they demonstrate Focus, Leadership, Achievement, Manners and Excellence.
This is our second school year being able to offer the wonderful opportunity for all of our students to benefit from Maryland Meals for Education (MMFA). Through MMFA, all students are provided classroom breakfast at no charge, regardless of family income. We are confident that MMFA will have a positive impact on our students!
We are committed to building leadership in our students as we guide our students to greatness! Dynard continues to build collaborative partnerships with our community such as the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Department, 7th District Optimist Club, the American Legion, and Chopticon High School, just to name a few.
Stakeholder involvement is encouraged and we offer the following opportunities at Dynard Elementary:
· Become a member of our PTA
· Join a PTA committee
· Volunteer with PTA
· Become a member of the School Improvement Team (SIT)
· Become a volunteer (see SMCPS volunteer guidelines)

Thank you for your interest in Dynard Elementary, home of the Dragons!
