Dorothy Nolan Weekly Update

February 12, 2016

Parent Update

  • We encourage the celebration of our students and staff, but please be considerate of their confidentiality and privacy when attending classroom and school events. Not all are comfortable with their picture and/or names being informally posted or distributed through social media. Thank you for your understanding. Please see your classroom teacher should you have any questions.

  • Based on a recommendation from our school safety specialist, there will be a table in our vestibule where parents can leave items that their students forgot to bring with them to school, i.e. lunches, homework, classroom snacks, etc. Our Attendance Clerks will collect the items throughout the day and deliver them to your children. This will start after our winter break. Thank you for your cooperation.


Have a great Winter Recess from the HSA!

This camp is an opportunity to work on the fundamentals of the game both offensively and defensively. Students will take time each day to work on hitting, fielding, throwing and pitching. The basics taught at this camp are universal to the success of any baseball player.

SNACPack Food Drive

The SNACPack program is designed to meet the needs of hungry children on weekends, when other resources are not available. The program provides backpacks filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed.
