Final Edition - Summer Break
Principal Connection - A Note From Mrs. Seniura:
Dear Dorr Families,
It is with great melancholy that I write for the final time this school year. We have much to celebrate!
We are sending a phenomenal group of third grade students on the next leg of their journey. They have been kind, understanding and persevered. They will be missed.
Our students have worked hard and played hard, showing grit and determination.
You have helped by supporting us! You helped with school work, completed packets, set your students up for ZOOM meetings, sent masks daily, and cheered our kiddos on! We couldn’t have done it without you.
Our staff has gone above and beyond everyday to help students continue to learn and grow both virtually and in person.
I am pleased to announce Dorr Elementary is Highly Effective again this year. This is because students, families and staff have worked together!! Thank you for all you have done to support our students. .
Communication from Dorr will resume in August when we have plans in place for another fantastic school year.
Take Care and have a Restful Summer,

Virtual Field Trip
Learning History With The Help Of Technology
The 3rd graders have been learning about pioneer life for a few weeks now and normally the unit ends with a field trip to Charlton Park. With current COVID restrictions, that seemed impossible. But with the technology of Zoom virtual meetings, students were able to tour the historic park from their desks. Students were taken to a time where there were no electric stoves, only woodstoves recalls Savanna. The students were surprised to learn about how different things were in pioneer days. All three students agreed the weirdest thing that pioneers had in their homes were spittoons. These were pots that the men spit in to so they wouldn't get the floors dirty. Then at night, the children would have to go dump them out. Easton says he is so happy that doesn't happen anymore.
Students also learned about pioneer school life. Kendall and Savanna explained that they had a 1 room school house that had students from 1st grade all the way up to 8th grade. The youngest students sat in the very front and the oldest students were in the back. "The boys were allowed to miss school" Easton added, but not to play video games. They were expected to work on family farms.
The students were all excited to tell me about their hands on activities. Easton, Kendall, and Savanna explained how they made "pioneer animation". They stuck two pictures together and threaded a piece of string in the middle. When they twisted the string, the pictures would spin giving the illusion that the picture was animated.
Although the students would have rather gone to Charlton Park in person, they were grateful for the opportunity. Even if it was virtual. It was a great way to feel like you were there without leaving the classroom. Thank you to Charlton Park and the 3rd Grade teachers for organizing this trip!
