Hear from our Principal

Dear Dove Academy Community,

Welcome back to another exciting school year at Dove! School starts on 8/28/23. It is my favorite time of year and I can’t wait for students and staff to return to campus!

As we launch into this new school year, we wanted to share our excitement for this upcoming school year and reassure you that Dove Academy is committed to providing a stable and enriching educational experience for your child. Our focus this year will be on three main things: high-quality education, safety, and open communication.

High-Quality Education:
At Dove Academy, we believe all scholars can and will become contributing members to an ever-changing global society. We’ve been preparing all summer for students to return. Our dedicated team of teachers and staff are so excited to return and ensure the educational and instruction needs of each student. We are focusing on student growth and academic success for all students!

As always, the safety and well-being of our students are extremely important to us. We’ve reviewed our comprehensive safety plans and are confident in their effectiveness. Our teachers and staff are trained to respond successfully to any emergency situations, and we regularly conduct drills to prepare for various scenarios. Rest assured that we are taking every precaution to keep our school community safe and secure.

Open Communication:
We strongly believe that open and transparent communication between the school and families is vital for the success of our students. Throughout the year, we will inform you about important events, academic progress, and any other updates related to the school. You can expect monthly newsletters, parent-teacher conferences, and various school events where you can actively engage with teachers and staff. We also encourage you to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have. Together, as a united community, we can create a nurturing and supportive environment for our students to thrive.

We are confident that this year will be filled with growth, success, and memorable moments. As a reminder, school starts at 7:45 a.m.and dismissal is at 3:00 p.m. Monday - Thursday and 1:00 p.m. on Fridays.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. Let's make this school year extraordinary together!

See you soon!
