Principal’s Message- November 21, 2017

It is with much gratitude that we write this message. We are truly thankful for the amazing Dooley students, staff and community. Thank you, parents, for all you do to support your children: getting them to school on time, preparing lunches and snacks, helping with homework, and encouraging them to do their best every day. On behalf of the entire Dooley staff, we want to wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving break; enjoy the time off with family and friends.
