From the Principal...

Dear Dodson family,

February promises to be a fantastic month!  We have many activities taking place at Dodson, so please make sure your children attend school regularly so they may benefit from daily learning opportunities.  Our attendance has slightly increased to 92%.  Students are completing mid-year assessments to monitor their academic growth.  You may call the school at any time to schedule an appointment with teachers, administrators or guidance counselors to discuss your child's progress.  Please continue to read with your children and check to see that they are completing homework assignments. 

On behalf of the entire faculty, I wish you a restful and literate winter recess.  Snuggle up with a good book and meaningful conversations. 

The literacy focus for the month of February is "POINT OF VIEW".
The R.O.A.R. word for the month of February is "COMPASSION".

Dodson is collecting Box Tops for Education.  Each Box Top is worth ten cents ($.10).  You can find Box Tops on many items such as baking products, beverages, cereals, baby products, storage bags and containers.  Just look for the Box Top label and clip and send to your child's teacher. Please support Dodson!

I am a respectful and responsible person,
I am responsible for my attitude, my behavior and my schoolwork.
I am in control of my actions,
I know if it is to be it’s up to me!


Soy una persona respectuosa y responsable.
Soy responsable de mi actitud, mi comportamiento y mi obligación de estudiante.
Tengo control de mis acciones,
Todo depende de mi!
