Counseling Program

The Doerre counselors are committed to meeting the needs of the whole child. The counselors are actively involved by addressing: academic issues, developmental issues, social skills, peer pressure issues, and parent education. The counselors welcome new students by hosting a new student breakfast. In addition the counselors sponsor a student organization called Doerre Chiefs. This group helps new students of all grade levels with their transition to Doerre.

Parent Involvement

There are many volunteer opportunities at Doerre. Volunteer activities for parents and community members are needed for student incentive and special programs, athletic, academic and arts clubs, concessions, and fundraising.

Core Curriculum

Doerre Intermediate School is committed to providing an academicallysound and socially-focused learning environment in which all students are given the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential. Special programs include number sense, touch system data entry, professional communication, principals of human services, and career education. Doerre follows alongside the district curriculum for basic instruction, which is listed as follows:

English Language Arts (ELA)

ELA instruction at the intermediate school expands and develops reading and writing skills that are introduced in elementary school. Writing and reading are the core units of study in all three grade levels. Students are taught to write for various audiences, purposes, and modes; grammar skills; and practice techniques in spelling, word usage, punctuation, capitalization, and handwriting. In reading, students apply learned reading skills in both fiction and nonfiction reading selections. The study of literature also increases in intermediate school.

Math

At the intermediate level, students build a foundation of understandings in number, operation, and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.

Science

At the intermediate level students learn science skills and learn to identify components of the solar system including the sun, planets, moon, and asteroids; systems of the human body; and relationship between force and motion.

Social Studies

In grades K-12, students build a foundation in history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, science, technology, and social studies skills. The content, as appropriate for the grade level or course, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation.

Special Programs

Girls’ athletics has enjoyed successful seasons in volleyball, basketball and track throughout the years. It is a program rich in the tradition of building champions. Girls are pushed to not only become better athletes but develop a strong character as well. Any parent is welcome to support girls’ athletics by attending games and cheering the teams on to victory. For further information on volunteering, please contact the Doerre PTO.

Boys athletics at Doerre has played a major roll in developing young men and good citizens in the community. Programs in football, basketball, track, cross country, swimming, and tennis have had much success and have led Doerre to many championships. We encourage both students and parents to become involved in our athletics programs through attendance at events and volunteering. We look forward to another wonderful year.
