It's hard to believe that we are already in February! Coming back from the holiday break, we all jumped right into the new school year and finished off first semester in a great way. By the time you read this, we will have had a successful BoosterThon, planned a wonderful Daddy Daughter Dance, and prepared for our annual Patriot's Day. None of these events would have been successful without the help and support of you - our parents.
As parents, you have such a significant influence in your child's life and education. Research shows that parental involvement is essential to improving the quality of education. Parents who value education and become partners with the school send a strong message to their children regarding the importance of learning. Parents, teachers, and administrators must work in partnership to encourage children to take education seriously. We appreciate the crucial role our Dolphin parents play in preparing their child for success in school. Working as a team, our combined efforts reinforce academic standards, ethical behavior, and positive interpersonal communication. As a result, children flourish - not only as students - but develop in a broader sense to become all they can be!
The new year provides the perfect opportunity for our Dolphin family of students, parents, and staff to commit to make the second half of the school year even better than the first! Let's all pledge to continue our support of the DME Mission Statement: “The mission of Doby’s Mill Elementary School, in partnership with our community, is to provide a safe, nurturing, and innovative learning environment that empowers students with knowledge and skills to become self-disciplined, responsible, and productive citizens.”
Happy Valentine's Day! Thanks for loving and supporting our students!
