Principal's Message

Dalton Elementary School

Dalton Bobcat Families,

Welcome Back to School for the 2023-2024 school year! My name is Dr. Donna Martyn, and I am honored to be the new Dalton Bobcat principal. We have and are planning many new and exciting activities, support opportunities, and expectations for both students and families for the upcoming year. We also have several new, as well as returning students and staff, that are ready and enthusiastic to begin the new year with you and your child. We ask for your continued support, as well as time and patience this year as we transition into the best Dalton experiences for all.

A brief background about myself: I have been in the Azusa district going on 23 years. I began my career as an elementary teacher, teaching all grade levels with the bulk of my career as a 4th and 5th grade teacher. I have taught in most of the Azusa elementary schools and spent the last 2 years as the assistant principal of both Foothill and Center Middle School. I am excited about this new opportunity and I excited to meet you!

Due to my passion for students and families, I am here to support our community and ensure that our Dalton Bobcat students feel motivated, safe, supported, and loved by our staff and community. My office door is always open and our office staff is here to listen. I would like to encourage Dalton families to reach out to or be involved with our PTA, Think Together, and our new Community Schools-we are waiting for you ☺️. 

 We can’t wait to meet you on our first day of school!

Dr. Donna Martyn
