There is no better way to get involved with our school community and to get to know our fabulous staff and students than volunteering at an event. We have tons of volunteer opportunities throughout the school year. Many of them are described below!
Each classroom at Dobson hosts a bake sale. Parents and friends are asked to donate baked goods but are not limited to baked goods. You may donate fruit or any other healthy snack option of your choosing. Bake sales are on Friday and run 11am-2pm. 3 volunteers ensure that they run smoothly. You are not limited to only volunteering for your child’s classroom bake sale.
All funds raised at each bake sale benefit the host classroom directly!
Halloween Costume Parade and Classroom Parties
Halloween is one of the best days to be a student at Dobson School. Falling on a Friday this year, our Halloween Festivities will kick off with the Annual Halloween Costume Parade. Come volunteer to assist our younger students get their costumes on or set up for a class party All volunteers get to attend the Parade and see the monsters, ghosts, princesses, superheroes and more that take over our auditorium!
This truly is a special day and one that has been enjoyed by parents, students and staff for many years. Children’s Books related to food, such as Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola or The Very Hungry Caterpillar By Eric Carle, are paired with a coordinating dish of the families choosing. On the day of the event, the dish is sent in and served in an enormous buffet and is displayed alongside coordinating book! The children can sample a few or all of the dishes and get excited about reading.
Holiday Shoppe & Winter Solstice
The Holiday Shoppe provides all of Dobson’s students an opportunity to do their holiday shopping for the special people in their lives! This is NOT a fundraiser! All of their purchases are at cost. The children enjoy “shopping” for presents to give. The Home and school offers it purely for them to enjoy.
A favored Dobson tradition is our annual celebration of the Winter Solstice. Each class is invited to come to the library, read a winter theme book with a special guest reader and create a craft that celebrates the season and the shortest day of the year! Hot chocolate and cookies will be served for all to enjoy.
Music Performances & Art Show
Our annual student performances and Art Show are major highlights of the year at Dobson. What a great way to help showcase the vast artistic talent at Dobson while getting involved in the process. Help Ms. Tierney, Ms. Jarrett and Ms. Purcell by helping with Title I Sign in’s, baking and selling concessions, organizing students, hanging artwork or even making props and set decorations! This is a great way to help showcase the vast artistic talent at Dobson.
Dobson Day is the day that all members of the Dobson community come together to celebrate Dobson Pride as well as the end for the school year. This is a great time for parents, students and teachers to spend a day having fun and celebrating what makes Dobson a great place to be!
