From the Principal

  • Summer 2015

    Posted by Virginia Catoe at 7/1/2015
    Dear Parents,

    "Catch the Wave” has been our theme this past school year. I am proud to report that students, staff, and our Doby's Mill Community have made tremendous strides towards meeting the goals we have set.  It is a good time to reflect on the “goals” that we have worked hard to meet. Successes include learning in all academic areas, math, reading, writing, social studies, and science. Activities, such as Writer’s Workshop, Guided Reading, Author Visits, Novel Groups, Science Fair, music programs, Patriot Day, and many more, have provided the backdrop for our success. Extra-curricular opportunities have supported and enhanced the curriculum with over 550 Kindergarten through fifth grade students participating in programs, such as BoosterThon, Student Council, Lego Robotics, Beau Tie Club, REEF Club, Divine Designers, WAVE Camera Crew, Safety Patrol, Doby's Dashers and You, Go Girls, DEEP classes, and BrainSparks. Clearly, the Doby's Mill Elementary parents and community continues to be one of our school’s greatest assets!

    It is very apparent that our Dolphin parents have a strong connection to Doby's Mill and great involvement with their children’s education. Parental and community support and participation are indeed exceptional and greatly appreciated here at DME. Please know that we sincerely appreciate and are humbled by your continued support towards the education of our students.

    In closing, I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for a great school year! It is a pleasure working with all of you, and I truly appreciate your continued dedication and support. 

    In Dolphin Pride,

    Ginger Catoe
