Welcome to the 2009-2010 School Year! We are so excited that school is underway. I love the sight of new backpacks, fresh haircuts, and eager minds traipsing into the school building.
Last Tuesday night the School District had their annual Back To School Rally & Parade. For those of you that missed it – they had one of the largest attendance in years. It was thrilling to see parents and families showing their support and involvement from the start of the year. There were some exciting announcements made – several organizations in the community raised school supplies that will be distributed throughout the district, a number of our schools passed Missouri’s AYP with flying colors, and we were informed of a school adoption program supported by local churches in our community.
Both PTA and Dobbs have exciting things in store for this year. We will continue working hard to bring a sense of community back to our area, increase parental involvement, and further the education level of our scholars.
I encourage you to subscribe to our blog – it is our goal to update it several times a week. This will help you stay informed of events, volunteer needs, school and district information, as well as Kansas City news and activities for families.
Here’s to a GREAT 2009-2010 school year.
