Principal’s Message- January 11, 2019

Dooley students holding up notes from parents

We have had an amazing start to the 2019 school year.  Our students started their week off being cheered on and welcomed by staff, participated in a school wide assembly, and have been engaged in their work all week.  Maya Angelou’s quote “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” resonated with me this week as our students opened their letters of gratitude from their families during Monday’s assembly.  Thank you for partnering with us to share your kind words and help to make each and every Dooley student feel so very special.

We are excited to share that Mrs. Mandarino and her family welcomed a baby boy, Eric, this past December.  While she is enjoying her time at home with her new baby, Mrs. Priscilla Buchanan will be supporting us.  We are happy to have her Dooley these next few months!

Volunteer Opportunity

Calling all who can crochet, knit, sew, or weave! Dooley needs you! If you are interested and can come in to Dooley during the week, please contact Mrs. Thomas through email: KristinThomas@nullsd54.org  Thank you!

Happiness Advantage

On Monday we kicked off our 21 day challenge. Over the next few weeks staff and students will be working on practicing one of the 5 tactics we have learned about: The Doubler, Gratitudes, Acts of Kindness, Mediation, and the Fun 15.  We know that by practicing these tactics for 21 days or longer we can create healthy habits and retrain our brains for more happiness.  Students in grades K-2 are focusing on a 21 day challenge as a classroom.  Students in grades 3-6 have individual calendars to plan out their 21 day challenge. Please ask your child about what tactic they are working on and encourage them to continue working towards their 21 day challenge this weekend.
