Welcome to DG Elementary

DG Weekly Knight's News

Welcome to Dysart-Geneseo (DG) Elementary! “All in - Every Child - Every Day” is our belief! Our Knight's Pledge states: "At Union Elementary, We RESPECT ourselves, each other, our work, and our environment. We act SAFELY and RESPONSIBLY. Together we can do our BEST."

DG Elementary has excellent instruction and curriculum, an active student council, an active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), and strong community support. Our building also hosts a 4-year-old preschool that attends four (4) days per week Tuesday-Friday.

We have a caring and professional staff. Our teachers focus on the learning needs of each child. We use a process called Professional Learning Communities (PLC). The PLC process involves the teachers working in grade levels across the district with La Porte City Elementary. This has helped us make a better connection between teaching effectiveness, learning, assessing, reviewing data results, reteaching, differentiation of instruction, and meeting student’s needs. The PLC process helps us create more of a “Union Elementary” rather than two separate buildings. Our teachers also meet monthly in a Learning Support Team (LST) to discuss students and set up interventions.

We have a lot of exciting things happening at Dysart-Geneseo Elementary! Go Knights!
