Dedham School Building Rehabilitation Committee and School Committee to Host Joint Meeting To Review Latest Progress on New Oakdale Elementary Building Project
Dedham Public Schools welcomed 2600 students in grades 1-12 back on Wednesday, September 7th for the start of the 2022-23 school year. Dedham’s littlest learners in Kindergarten and Pre-K will be returning over the coming days. As staff returned for an opening day welcome event last Thursday, September 1, they were encouraged to explore ways in which they could each make student learning even more of a priority.
