From the Principal...

Dear Dodson family,

Welcome to a Marvelous May! It is unbelievable that we have arrived at the month of May and we are preparing for the end of another school year. Students have worked really hard and have shown tremendous growth but we must finish the school year just as strong as we began it! April’s attendance rose to 94%. Please make every effort to send your child to school. Please pay attention to the important dates as the next two months will be very busy. As always, read, read, read!

The literacy focus for the month of May is "CONFLICT".
The R.O.A.R. word for the month of May is "HONESTY".

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!
