Preschool Payments Due Feb. 8th!

Preschool payments can now be paid online via your parent portal! Just sign in to your parent portal, choose your student from the drop down box, then choose payments on the side menu bar. There you can check your balance and make credit card payments. Please do not use the old RevTrak link on our webpage. Doing so results in lost payment and incorrect allocation of payments. You may also pay your payment in the office with cash or check. Sorry, we are not able to take credit card payments in the office.

Bus Safety

Accidents in the drop off lanes and while loading and unloading buses seem to be a growing epidemic these days. Below are some tips for students on crossing the road safely. If your child crosses while getting on or off the bus please review this information with them. It could be life changing.

Fun Galore In Room 204!

Mrs. Licari's 3rd grade class is all about having fun while learning! See what they have been up to in the pictures below!

Fa-La-La-La-La-ing Into The Holiday

The High School Choir visited Dorr Elementary to send everyone to break in the holiday spirit. They invited our 3rd and 4th grade choir to join them to sing popular Christmas Carols with the students as well as teach some new holiday favorites. It was a great way to showcase all the talent we have in our schools. Nice Job carolers!

Winter Weather Alert!

Students have outdoor recess unless the windchill reads below 0. Please send your child with appropriate winter gear. Labeling all winter gear with at least a last name will help teachers make sure that stray gear gets to its rightful owners. If you have a young child, practice putting on gear and zipping coats. This will ensure your little one gets more recess time and less waiting for the teacher time!

Be Prepared!

Accidents happen. Make sure your student isn't stuck in wet pants, crying over spilled milk. Pack an extra outfit in a Ziploc and slip it in their backpack.


Our supply of "loner" clothes is low! We are in need of:


  • Boys and Girls Underwear size 5 and up
  • Tee Shirts size Youth Medium and Youth Large


Consider donating your unwanted, grown out of clothes to the office!
