Principal's Message

Good Afternoon Doby's Bridge Families,


Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Throughout this month, our classes have been discussing gratitude in their morning meetings. Now is a great time for families to show gratitude to a staff member. You can do this by sharing an email or writing a note to your child's teacher telling them how much you appreciate all the hard work they do to impact the lives of our students. Gratitude doesn't just have to be to your child's current teacher. It could be to past teachers, related arts teachers, or any teacher that you feel has had a positive impact on your child's educational journey.


I would also like to extend gratitude to all of our families for their support of our school! You entrust us with your children each day and it's our pleasure to provide them with a wonderful education experience. We appreciate you!

Dragon of the Month

Congratulations to the following Dragons for being selected as this month's Dragons of the Month. These students were selected by their classmates for being RESPECTFUL in their classrooms. These Dragons received a DBES swag bag, popcorn, and attended a brief celebration ceremony where parents submitted videos to let their Dragon know how proud they are of their student. Congrats Dragons!
