The Kindergarten students at Dobson Elementary along with students in Mrs. Coe's class started off the week with BIG NEWS! They became parents to special baby pumpkins. This week is baby pumpkin week where they will be learning about pumpkins all week long in STEM centers. Surry County Sheriff Jimmy Combs and several officers came by to help deliver the new tiger pumpkins to our students. We are so thankful for all the Surry County Sheriff's Office does for our community!
We are very blessed to have received two grants this past year so that our media center could purchase a new Oculus Rift Virtual Reality set. So far this year our 3rd grade students have traveled to the White House and our 5th grade students have learned about the circulatory system. Our kids love to be able to travel and experience new things without ever leaving our school. We are so thankful to the SCS Educational Foundation and the Walmart Foundation for funding this program at our school!
Our teachers have had great success adding new tools to their classrooms with the help of Donors Choose projects. Take a look to see what projects are currently available to support!
