Welcome to Dover Elementary

Student of the Month

Congratulations to Emmitt Williams! Emmitt is January DES Student of the Month!

I nominated Emmett Williams because he exemplifies the qualities of a student of the month. Emmett consistently makes good choices in class. When his work is done, it is always well done. he listens to instructions and listens when others are speaking without interrupting. Emmett is a good friend to his classmates and to others in Kindergarten. He plays well with his friends and is always kind to them. He is always willing to lend a helping hand if needed. Emmett is very polite, considerate of others and has great manners. Keep up the good work, Emmett!

-Mrs. Williams
