Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Dodge Literacy Magnet. My name is Michelle Wilkes, your Principal. I am excited to be at Dodge where we are striving to empower our students to BE amazing both in and out of school. I am a native of Wichita and proud graduate of the Wichita Public Schools. This year is the beginning of my 27th year in the Wichita Public School system and my seventh year as a Principal. I am a devoted Kansas State University fan who loves football, baseball, and hockey. I enjoy reading and traveling with my family in my spare time. I am passionate about student learning and high quality teaching. I hope you join me in raising the bar for your student. I want all of our Dodge Literacy Magnet students to come to school, every day, to work hard, learn much, and BE safe while doing it. Thank you for sharing your student with us. We are going to have a fantastic year!
