WELCOME TO DORR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

The dedication of Dorr's teaching staff is second to none as they work tirelessly and together to help every child be his/her personal best.  Although the Ohio Department of Education's (ODE) system for rating

schools is changing, it is important to reflect that for the past several years, the efforts of Dorr Elementary School students have allowed the school to achieve high ratings from the ODE.   

We are very proud of the entire Dorr family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception!

PBIS Bronze AwardAfter nearly three years of enhancing the school environment through Positive Behaviorial Interventions and Supports (PBIS), Dorr Elementary is being recognized at the state level during the PBIS Showcase with the Bronze Award. The Bronze Award recognizes schools for their quality and fidelity of PBIS implementation.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), is a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes in school communities while preventing problem behavior. The key component of PBIS is providing preventive activities to encourage students to make appropriate behavior choices. This includes establishing standard expectations throughout the environment, educating staff and students about these expectations, and rewarding appropriate behavior that meet these expectations through a variety of means.
We are proud of our staff and students for making a positive impact on the Dorr Elementary school environment. We would also like to thank our Dorr Elementary PBIS Committee who have worked to support this worthwhile and beneficial initiative. The PBIS Committee includes Arica Hoge, Brad Kerns, Kelly Kerns, Jenn Leasure, Angie Rechtine, Hallie Wright-Comes and welcomes Barb Eckhart and Amy McMahon this year.


Congratulations, Dorr Elementary!

STEAM Jet Toy Finals
After working on Jet Toys during several STEAM class sessions, teams of three to four students in grades 4 and 5 had the opportunity to participate in a building wide Jet Toy competition. Prior to the competition, students worked to improve their Jet Toys to make them move the farthest distance and move accurately. Following the competition, each class had one team who then qualified to represent Dorr Elementary at the Jet Toy Finals at Holland Elementary on Thursday, November 29.

All four elementary schools participated in the Jet Toy Finals, and it was exciting to see the students compete. The students were evaluated by Guest Judges which included engineers from the Dana Corporation. We are happy to share that Dorr was represented very well, and we had three of our six teams finish in the top three positions. The following teams received recognition: 4th Grade Space Otters (Emmee Cordero, Emma Fox, Bradley Hunkapiller, and Gabriella Sanchez) from Mrs. Rice’s class received 3rd place; 5th Grade Three Musketeers (Abby Kurdziel, Wyatt Portala, and Olivia Wetzel) from Mrs. Seitz’s class received 2nd place; and 4th Grade ROC Engineering (Cameron Chua, Orion Mendez, and Reid Whitacre) from Mrs. DiSalle’s class received 1st place. The winners of each grade level will advance to the International Jet Toy Competition held in Detroit, Michigan in the spring.

We are proud of our Dorr students and Mrs. Quigley, our STEAM teacher, for participating in this educational and worthwhile competition!
