Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!

We are excited to welcome back students and also all of our incoming new Kindergarteners!  It is a pleasure to serve such a great community of amazing students, wonderful families and a dedicated staff.  As I begin my 5th year at Dorothy Grant Elementary,  I feel priviledged to continue working with all of you! Our goals for Dorothy Grant Elementary are to ensure:

  • All students will be on track for college and career readiness
  • All students will be able to compete in the global community
  • All students will be kind, compassionate caring individuals

These goals  for our students at Dorothy Grant Elementary require a great commitment on the part of all key stakeholders.  Parents, teachers, staff, our counselor, and I must support students daily and work collaboratively to ensure student success.  Please work with us on the following:

  • Demonstrate high expectations for academics, attendance, character and performance for your child daily
  • Hold regular conversations with your child and your child's teacher about learning goals .  Don't wait to have conversations about how to enrich their academics, character or interventions as needed
  • Check homework, classwork and activities for your child's best work on a daily basis-- learning excellence begins at home and is built upon at school
  • Hold daily conversations utilizing a rich vocabulary with your child-- learn new words and make learning language a daily habit
  • Talk to your child about being a great citizen and being kind to others.  Stand up for what is right in the world. We have zero tolerance for bullying!
  • As adults, it is important that we model appropriate behavior when on school grounds or when conflict occurs-- your child is watching every move you make!
  • Be an active participant at school at Dorothy Grant. We are home of the volunteers! Sign up to volunteer in the classroom, on the PTA/SSC/ELAC, and get to know your child's teacher and his/her friends
  • Utilize online resources the school provides such as Lexia, Starfall, Mobymax, Discovery Education and Ten Marks for learning at home (see your child's teacher for passwords)

We are very excited to start the school year and look forward to working with you!  Please check the calendar for upcoming events, check the Dorothy Grant PTA website, Dorothy Grant PTA Facebook page, and upcoming Dorothy Grant PTA Instagram site.  Stay in the know!

See you in August!
