From the Principal...

Dear Dodson Family,

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year! It gives me great pleasure to welcome all new Pre-kindergarten students and families as well as any new students joining our Dodson family!

We have many exciting activities planned for this school year, with a strong focus on literacy. Please remember to bring in your completed summer reading and homework packets to your teachers. Also, please continue to visit our school website for upcoming meetings and events.

Please remember that I can be easily reached by phone or email. Our number one goal is to ensure a safe environment where all students will be able to learn.

I‘m looking forward to a wonderful, literacy-rich school year!

Ms. Medina

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.

Todo depende de mi!
