Animal Shelter Flyer

This year at Dooley, our theme is “Be the Change!” The Dooley Specials Team wants to make a change, so we are collecting food and other items for the Anderson Animal Shelter in Bloomingdale, Illinois during the month of October.  We are asking students to bring an item to the school to place in our donation box.

The 1st and 2nd graders will be “kicking” off the collection with a walk-a-thon tomorrow, Tuesday, October 1 from 5:00-6:00 p.m.  Students will begin with our “Be the Change” song and school song, and then we will start our walk-a-thon around Dooley School. We will be starting our collection that night and boxes will be available outside of the school for donations.  This is a great opportunity to show kindness to others and teach our students that a small act of kindness can contribute to making a significant change!

All students and their families are welcome to attend.  We hope to see you and your child at this event tomorrow night!

This is a list of the new/unused items that are being collected and/or see the flyer below:

*Cat and Dog Wet Food (Any Brand, Any Formulas)

*Feather Cat Toys

*Kitten Feeding Bottles

*Stuffing-less Plush Dog Toys

Lockdown Drill

Today, Dooley School practiced a Hard Lockdown Drill under the guidance of the Schaumburg Police Department. We hold at least two lockdown drills each year so that students and staff are familiar with the best practices should there ever be a crisis situation in the school. Today’s drill was an unannounced drill so that we could test our systems and evaluate how we respond.  Although the drill was a surprise, it was announced that it was a drill so the students were not frightened.

After each drill, we reflect as a staff and with local emergency responders to determine if there are any procedures we might need to review with the staff and students. The police said they were impressed with how well our students and staff did during the drill.  We obviously hope never to need to use these procedures, but it helps all involved to know that they have the skills needed to respond if an emergency should arise.

The safety of your children is very important to our staff. Should you have any questions about this drill, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Wear Gold and Half Day Tomorrow, September 18

Wednesday, September 18 is a half day for our students. Students will be dismissed at 11:40 AM. Tomorrow is also a school spirit day: Be Bold, Wear Gold!

 

Principal’s Message- September 13, 2019

Mrs. Thomas, our art teacher, has been busy with our artists on this year’s whole school art project.  Each student reflected on something they could focus on being better at this year, for example, some chose to be more patient, positive, or optimistic.  Students wrote that word on their hand in the picture below.  Together, the culminating project will say, “You have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world.”  This ties nicely with this year’s theme, Be the Change.  Ask your child what word they chose to focus on improving this year.  Here is a sneak peek at the project so far:

Whole school art project with hands and stars

Our feature class for the week is Ms. Meservey’s 5th & 6th grade.  Her class created a newspaper article to highlight a few of the things they have been working on this week.  Each section features different student authors.  They highlight topics including writing, science, math, literacy and classroom culture.  We hope you enjoy reading this edition of Dooley Dragon Pride Newsletter.docx

Universal Screener

As a school, we strive to meet the needs of the whole child, including the social-emotional needs of every student.  Our teachers know your child by name and by need and we work hard to build relationships and understand all of our learners.  To better ensure we support every student, this year we will again be using a universal screener to help us ensure we have identified every student who may need additional social-emotional support.

The universal screener is a series of questions that staff members complete for the students they support. Students do not participate in the screener or receive direct feedback about the results. If your child has elevated risk factors identified through this screener, we would contact you directly to discuss how we can work together to intervene and support your student.  This is simply one additional way for our staff to make sure we are helping every student be successful.  If you have any questions about the screener, please feel free to contact us.

Multicultural Parent Advisory Council

Please join us for our first meeting on Tuesday, September 17th from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Professional Learning Center at 524 East Schaumburg Road.

Principal’s Message- August 30, 2019

This was a fun week for us as we welcomed Dooley’s kindergarteners.  It is exciting to see our youngest learners engaged and happy at school!  On Monday, we recognized our first round of students who were “Caught being kind”.  A student from each class was recognized.  We enjoyed reading about their kind acts, which are on display in our hallways.  We are looking forward to continuing to spread kindness in our school and community this year!

Students who were caught being kind holding their blue arrows

News to share….Dooley school was recognized in the September issue of Chicago Magazine, ranking at number 5 in the Top Elementary & Middle Schools category for Suburban Cook County.  We know that this recognition is due to the hard work of our staff and students and the support of our parent community.  Thank you for helping to make Dooley such an incredible place to work and learn.

This year, we would like to spend time highlighting some of the work that is happening in our classrooms.  This week’s featured class is Mrs. Tufexis’ 6th Grade.  We are excited to share a little bit of their story!

Here are some of the AWESOME things happening in Room 113:

  • We learned expectations in school settings and started learning in all the different subjects including specials!
  • Everyone worked on being kind to each other and participated in team building class activities!
  • We’ve created stars to represent ourselves and brainstormed what our 6th Grade goals should be!

Some highlights from our first weeks:

  • Receiving our patrol vests and beginning to patrol!
  • Completing Chromebook training and starting to use them!

Students in room 113 also created their own classroom newsletter…take a look for pictures and more details about their week.Room 113 Newsletter
