Student Council President, Master Brayden Woodring, delivered the invocation and Miss Caroline Scott, Student Council Vice-President, discussed the student impact the construction will bring for the Tigers. Dobson’s 2018-2019 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Amy Holt, discussed the significance of this renovation project and reflected on being a student in the buildings that will now be renovated. Mrs. Robin Narehood, PTO President, and the parent of three children who all attended Dobson Elementary remarked on the impact this project will have on future students and the Dobson community. Surry County Board Vice-Chairperson, Mr. Clark Goings, commented, “This groundbreaking marks a new beginning in many ways for the students and staff at Dobson Elementary. Construction and renovation is a sign of progress and this is a great opportunity for the Dobson community to have revitalized learning spaces for 21st Century learners.
Fourth grade students at Dobson Elementary just took a trip to Raleigh, NC. They enjoyed not only learning more about our states government, but the history of our great state. Students toured the North Carolina Capital Building, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science, the North Carolina Museum of History and the North Carolina Legislative Building. This was the first time in our state's capital for most of the students and they had an amazing time.
Students at Dobson Elementary celebrated #WorldReadAloudDay on Friday, February 1st. Reading is such a huge part of the foundation of Dobson Elementary, so students and staff were excited to take part in the celebration. Teachers read aloud their favorite books, younger students had buddy readers from the upper grades and PreK even had a special reading party for one of the 5th grade classes.
