Principal’s Message- February 22, 2019

This week we enjoyed seeing Dooley students showcase their talents at the Dooley’s Got Talent show.  There was incredible dancing, singing, tumbling, and so much more.  We are so proud of all our students’ unique abilities.

Yesterday evening, our Board of Education recognized Dooley 3rd grader, William, for his recent musical accomplishments.  We are so proud of him!  Please see the District 54 Visions Newsletter for more details.
