End of the year news….
As this school year comes to an end, we have already begun planning for next year. We have changed some teachers’ assignments and added some new teachers to Dooley in the hope that each grade level offers all different teaching styles to accommodate each child’s learning style. A great deal of time and energy is put into creating class lists. Our primary goal is to make sure that each classroom is balanced. This means that each class should have an equal amount of boys and girls along with a combination of students who achieve at all different academic levels. I am pleased to announce the tentative teaching assignments for the 2016/2017 school year as follows:
Kindergarten – Mrs. Mannina
Dual Kindergarten: Mrs. Herbig and Mrs. Yamamoto
1/2 Multigrade – Mrs. Bardwell, Ms. Mui and Mrs. Fry (New to Dooley)
1st Grade Dual – Mrs. Sanders and Mrs. Bell
2nd Grade Dual – Mrs. Yuri Kim and Mrs. Bach
3/4 Multigrade – Mrs. Pietryla and Mrs. Walz
3rd Grade Dual – Mrs. Darnall and Mrs. Stob
4th Grade Dual – Mrs. Tanaka and Mrs. Sylvia Kim

Summer Wishes and Reminders
On behalf of Dooley staff, please have a safe and happy summer. It is truly a privilege to work with each of your children. A great staff, wonderful children and very supportive parents have made a winning combination. Thank you for your trust and goodwill this past year.
LEARNING NEVER TAKES A VACATION! Reading is the key to all we do at school. Our fantastic public library, Barnes and Noble and Scholastic Books have wonderful resources for all of us to continue to read over the summer. Read! Read! Read!
