Thoughts for the Week
Today marks my official one month anniversary serving as Principal here at Dover. I wanted to thank each of you for your assistance and support during the transition.
Earlier this week I shared the results of the staff survey with members of the administrative team. I appreciate your honesty and candor in that process. I will be sharing the results with department chairs at our next meeting and will be highlighting some ways I plan to address the issues raised in your responses. I will also be asking them to help shape a collaborative activity that will assist us moving forward. Later this month I will be presenting the results of the survey to the entire faculty and staff.
As I look back on first month I am struck by how reflective your responses were of what I have observed at Dover. It is clear that we have several major areas for growth and opportunity, but the core building block is the same - we value our purpose, our colleagues, and our students. Together we will continue to do what is best for our students and look for opportunities to grow. Thank you.
Athletic Programs Kick Off the Spring Season
Last week our spring sports teams began their season. This year marks the beginning of another first for Dover as we are fielding Boys and Girls Lacrosse teams. Good luck this season to all of our athletes and come out and up port your Eagles.
Dr. Collins Visits Dover
Dr. John Collins, the creator of the Collins Writing Program, visited Dover earlier this week. He met with several students at DAHS, reviewed class folders, and provided feedback on the program. In the afternoon, he met with the building principals to share his reflections and collaborate on planning professional learning activities of August.
