Welcome Dover Elementary School Parents,
We would like to welcome you to the Dover Elementary School Family. Our school community is proud of our educational program and the positive experiences that our students are provided each school year. We look forward to working closely with your family during the school year.
My office staff and I will be delighted to help you with whatever needs you and your child have during the school year. Our office secretaries, Mrs. Karen Holtzapple and Mrs. Danielle Scheivert, are here to help you each day in the front office. Our school counselor, Mrs. Jessica Knowles is in our building every day to meet the students’ social, emotional, and academic concerns. I have an Open Door Policy to immediately address any academic or behavioral concerns.
I also want to encourage you to become an active member in the Dover Elementary P.T.O. This group does a lot of wonderful things for our students such as: funding field trips, paying for assembly programs, providing holiday treats, and planning our Fall Festival and May Day. Our students really look forward to these special events. However, they do require lots of parent support. We hope that you plan to participate in some of these events this school year. Please consider becoming an active member of the Dover Elementary School P.T.O.
Please give us a call at 292-8068 ext. 30111 if you have additional questions regarding our school.
