What a wonderful week it was at Dooley School! Thank you to all our families who joined us for Celebrate Reading and Writing Night on Wednesday. We were so proud to showcase our students’ incredible writing skills! Thank you to Mrs. Conrad and our Dooley students for kicking off the night with some great songs! We’d also like to thank our Dooley PTA and volunteers for the delicious ice cream and opportunity to visit the book fair!

Our Staff Highlight this week is Mrs. Chua, Mrs. Pobojewski, and Mrs. Weiss. We hope you enjoy reading all about their classes!

PACC Survey Information

District 54 is committed to ensuring not only the academic success of each child, but also their social-emotional well-being. Similar to this winter, we are asking for your insight as a parent/guardian in creating the most well rounded picture of your child’s strengths and opportunities for growth. To gather your perspective, District 54 sent families of students in grades 3-8 an email link for each child to the D54 Social Emotional Learning Survey on Monday, April 15.  Thank you in advance for participating in this survey, as we believe the home-school collaboration is critical to best support your child’s overall well-being. The deadline to complete the survey is May 10.
