Principal’s Message- June 6, 2019

This last week of school is full of fun memories for our students. On Tuesday, students participated in Dooley’s field day activities. It started out rainy but turned out to be a beautiful day. Thank you to all of the parents who volunteered to help at this event and especially to Mrs. Ruggieri who coordinated activities for us. We could not have done it without the help of our parent community!

Ms. Velasco shared a beautiful video at our end of the year assembly that truly captured our story of positivity at Dooley.  Students enjoyed seeing many of the great moments we shared together. Today was bittersweet as our 6th grade students walked the halls for the final time at Dooley school.  We enjoyed taking pictures and celebrating their journeys at Dooley. We wish all of our 6th graders the best of luck as they move on to junior high.

On behalf of the entire Dooley staff, we would like to wish all of our families a wonderful summer break! We are proud of each of our students for the hard work, dedication, and kindness they demonstrated throughout the school year.  We would also like to thank you, our parent community, for your support and partnership throughout the year.


PTA is looking for volunteers to support events for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Please consider supporting one or more of our many PTA sponsored events.  Pleases contact the school if you are interested in helping out.

Student Intern

We need your help!  Dooley will be welcoming two college age students from Waseda University in Japan this September.  We are looking for host families for each of the students.  This is a paid opportunity.   Please contact the main office if you are interested in helping in any way.

Back to School Night

We want to have our families save the date for our Back to School Night.  On Thursday, August 15th Dooley will host Back To School Night.  Families will be able to meet their teachers, drop-off supplies, and learn about the curriculum their children will engage in during the school year.  More details to come this summer!
