Parents, we are in the second half of the school year. One may rightly ask the question, where has the time gone? In the month of January our school had a Spelling Bee contest, Parent/Teacher conferences, celebrated MLK’s birthday, MAP testing, 100th Day of School Celebration, and Honor’s Chapel. It has indeed been a busy month. I am happy to inform you that our MAP scores are on the rise. We have seen academic growth in every grade. This growth, in part, is due to the cooperation of the home with the school. So, a big thank you goes out to each and every parent.
Further, our teachers recognize the importance of providing the students with the necessary skills to take their place in a fast-changing world. On February 19th the school will be closed for the President’s Day holiday. Additionally, we will be celebrating Black History Month with several different activities, some of which we will invite your presence.
Finally, parents thank you for the many birthday greetings you gave me. I was truly touch with both student and staff wearing red, my favorite color. That was only topped by the surprised I received upon entering the gym in the afternoon. The entire school was there singing, Happy Birthday and there was a huge birthday cake. I am honored to the principal of DOZJA.
