A Message from Mrs. Bolz

What a great start to our new school year! There was a wonderful turn out during the annual Meet the Teacher NIght, and the first two days of school were filled with excitement. We discussed and learned procedures and we are getting to know our classmates as they are getting to know their teachers. The Dodd staff work hard to create a family atmosphere, and taking time to get to know each student helps to build that culture.

Wishing everyone a wonderful school year!

Tricia Bolz

One of the most exciting days of the school year is sorting day! Each year new students and staff members are sorted into one of six different Dodd houses. Each person will remain in their house throughout their time at Dodd.
