Outstanding Girl Scout at Doerre Raises Money for School

Tatiana Krieger

A water bottle filling station was put in as a Girl Scout Silver Award project done by Tatiana Krieger an 8th grader here at Doerre. "The reason I decided to put this water bottle filling station in Doerre was to reduce the amount of plastic bottles used/bought at Doerre." Thank you Tatiana, we are proud you are a Doerre Warrior!

Hi Parents!!

We are excited to announce that the cheer clinic has been scheduled for January 18, 2020. Clinic will begin at 9 AM (check-in at Doerre cafeteria) and will end at 2 PM. The show off will take place in the Doerre gym at 1:30 pm.

The cheer clinic is something the Doerre cheer squad throws each year where athletes ages kindergarten through 6th grade come to learn cheers, dances, jumps, etc. from our Doerre cheerleaders. The cost is $40. The athletes can also cheer with the Doerre cheerleaders at the basketball game on 1/22/19 .

To register, parents and guardians can go to the Doerre Cheer Website (bit.ly/doerrecheerclinic *this is case sensitive*). If an athlete is registered by January 12th they are guaranteed a t-shirt. They will pay through SchoolCashOnline. When the portal in SchoolCashOnline goes live, they will receive an email with a link to pay.

Basic Doerre Information

Important Information: Student Arrival Time

We all know how excited middle school students are when they get to school in the morning! However, please remind your students that the doors to Doerre do not open until 8 AM.

Students are not allowed in the building before 8 AM unless they have a pass for a specific teacher, date and time.

If a student arrives at school before 8 AM they will need to wait in front until the building is open.

We wish we could allow all students in upon their arrival, but there have been some issues with students roaming the building before 8 AM. It is not safe to allow this to continue and we need your help with this matter.

Notes from the Crossing Guards to Cut Down on Traffic

1. When parking on the road, please pull ALL the way off of the road onto the grass.

2. Please do NOT pick up students in the middle of the road. They are running across traffic. This is dangerous and is holding up other cars.

3. When pulling onto or out of Warrior Way, do not block the crosswalk.

4. Please be present when driving around children. Watch for students at crosswalks, drive through crosswalks cautiously, knowing that students aren't paying attention.

5. Please follow the speed limits. School zones are 20 MPH max.....

6. Please tell your child that all students need to completely get off of their bikes and scooters when walking through a crosswalk.

Food and Drinks

Parents, will you please help us in explaining to students that food and drinks are not allowed outside of the cafeteria. Many students this year have already spilled a morning coffee from Starbucks, a smoothie, water and all types of food. I even almost slipped on half of a pear today after lunch!


We understand that there are exceptions and that there may be someone with a medical condition that needs quick access to a snack or a drink, this is not the issue.


Water bottles are okay, everyone needs an occasional drink....as long as they have a screw on top and are securely stored inside of backpacks. This water may not be taken out in classrooms if a teacher does not allow it or in hallways. The water may also not be out around any Chromebooks due to insurance purposes.


Thank you so much for your help in this!

EARLY DISMISSALS

Early dismissals and student messages cannot be honored after 3:30 p.m. in order to safely and effectively close out the school day for our students.
