Principal’s Message- September 27, 2019

We were so thankful that the clouds broke for Run to Read on Sunday.  It was great to see so many Dooley families having fun and being active together.  Thank you to those of you who attended this event!

Today was our last day with our interns, Miwako and Yasuki, from Waseda University in Japan.  Our students and teachers truly enjoyed having their support in classrooms.  We are thankful to our host families, the Silkers, Ferreiras, and Ashleys, who were so generous with their space.

Our interns, Miwako and Yasuki

Our feature class for the week is Ms. Brandys’ 5th & 6th grade.  Student authors created a Google Slides presentation to share about their math, literacy, specials, writing and SEL focus this week.  We hope you enjoy their presentation.  Brandys 5/6 Highlight
