    Lunch and Nutrition Program

    A lunch program is offered for students who take the bus, or who do not have an adult at home to supervise them at home during the lunch hour.  Children are supervised by supervisors hired from the community.  Please contact the school for current lunch fees.

    We encourage all children to bring healthy lunches and healthy snacks.  Working brains require good nutrious foods.  Please do not send soda pop or candy to school with your child.

    Principal's Message

    Welcome to the 2019-20 year at Dovercourt School. It is an absolute privledge to be a part of the students, staff, parents and community of Dovercourt. I feel very blessed and honored to be here.

    Dovercourt School is an inviting and inclusive school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, and where relationships are nurtured. Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable and connected and develop the skills required to be contributing members, both in our school and in the broader community.

    At Dovercourt School we believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff and the entire community.  Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioral expectations, capitalizing on the value of strong relationships.

    In an effort to ensure all students are successful, faculty will use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching will be a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students will be provided with multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.

    Communication is key at Dovercourt School and is a shared responsibility.  Students use agendas as well as updates and information will be communicated mainly through the use of Schoolzone. Also, feel free to drop by the school office and introduce yourself, share your feedback or concerns and ask any questions. Your questions, concerns, observations and feedback are welcomed and embraced so please connect with us by phone, email or in person at any time.

    I am proud of your children; I am proud of our teachers and I am particulatrily proud of our whole school community that is truly a lighthouse of diversity, acceptance, and caring. I look forward to an amazing year. Please, if you have any questions, our doors are always open.

    Sincerely,
