Principal’s Message- April 27, 2018

We have a busy May coming up!  We will continue to keep you informed of all our activities.

Message from PTA

Hey, Dooley parents – let’s show our appreciation to our hard working teachers and staff who made us a Blue Ribbon School! Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week kicks off May 2 with lunch from the Toasty Cheese food truck, paid for by Dooley’s PTA. But we don’t want to stop there. The PTA is asking parents to donate breakfast items on Thursday May 3. Non perishable and refrigerated items may be dropped off in the front office as early as Wednesday and hot dishes should be at the school by 7:30 a.m. on Thursday. We also want to treat staff to yummy desserts on Friday May 4. Items should arrive no later than 10:30 a.m on May 4. All items should be dropped off at the front office. If you can contribute, please email PTA volunteer Sarah Mawhorr at

Celebrate Reading and Writing

On May 15, we will be celebrating our students’ writing.  Stop in your child’s classroom anytime between 4:30-6:00 p.m. to view all the wonderful writing they have done this year.  It is a night not to miss!

We will mail a certificate to the teacher you are honoring, and your donation will support students in need in District 54.
