Principal’s Message- February 15, 2019

Thank you for joining us at conferences these past two days. It was great to see our students lead out conversations with their families about their progress and goals thus far. We couldn’t be more appreciative of the support that you provide and the quality of our school and family relationships. We enjoyed capturing photos of families together, showcasing artwork and musical compositions, and seeing families participating in the PTA sponsored Book Fair.

Dooley parents, we hope you can help:  If you have not taken the 5 Essentials Survey, we would greatly appreciate your participation.  It provides us with valuable feedback.  Please take a few minutes to participate in this survey

As a reminder, there is no school on Monday, February 18th due to the President’s Day Holiday.  We hope you enjoy the long weekend.
