Principal’s Message- February 8, 2019

It was great to be in school for a full 5 days this week. Students have been working hard to prepare for student led conferences, which will be held on Thursday, February 14th and Friday, February 15th. In addition to sharing academic celebrations and goals, Dooley students will be discussing goals for their social and emotional learning. Each class has spent time reflecting on the SEL themes that have been introduced this year and making commitments for the remaining months of school.
