The Hornet's Nest

For Dodd City Elementary Parents

Seen and Heard

Thank you for your patience while we outlasted the rain for Field Day! I think this caused the most anxiety in my professional career to date! As a teacher, I have had more than one Field Day rained out completely with no plan to bring it inside...and no chance to reschedule.


I just think Dodd City is the best place in the world. The kids had a great time...the seniors had a great day...my shoes will never dry out!


Rolling with the flow and trusting the plan...


It’s the Dodd City Way!

Thanks...

...to the sweet parent who brought me a Sonic Coke. Made my day!

Last Day of School

Our End of Year Awards program will begin at 8:30 am in the West Gym.


After the program ends, students will be dismissed, by class, back to the elementary building. Parents may check out early, if you wish, from the classroom. No need to stop and sign out at the office.


All end of year awards and report cards will be held if your child has unpaid accounts and/or lost library books. Tiffany and I will be available that morning to help clear any accounts.


If you have questions about your accounts, please contact us as soon as possible to avoid delays on the last day of school.

Kona Ice!

The Kona Ice truck will be parked in the circle drive this Thursday starting at 10. Please feel free to stop by and grab a treat on your way to Summertime!

Summer Programs

Letters will go home this week if your student will benefit from a Summer program. Typically, students are invited if they are performing below grade level in reading and/or math.

Students will be invited to attend Jump Start if they are performing below grade level in reading and/or math. They will also be required to attend if they do not meet passing standards on either STAAR reading or math test. STAAR scores will be available in mid-June.
