Students & Parents Information

Dear Parents,

Dorman School feels strongly that a relationship with parents helps improve a student's academic achievement and that the school and parents can build and develop a partnership to help children achieve this goal. Our goal is to build regular, two-way, meaningful and rewarding relationship between the school, community, and families.

Research shows a connection between a students success in school and parental involvement. Your child needs to know that you consider school important. There are a variety of ways to be involved with your childs school. The most important are parent/teacher conferences, Open House, regular communication with your childs teacher, and the Home/School Compact.

Additional important options are to volunteer in the classroom, attend field trips, become anS.C.D.M. (School Centered Decision Making)team member, become a part of Read-a-Loud, and attend school functions. Any time you give is beneficial to everyone, you, your child and the school. Check out the Parent Board located at the main office. It will keep you informed of school and community activities and programs.

Please contact 787-7554 for volunteer opportunities, school events, or any home/school issues.


To schedule a conference with the teacher, please contact the teacher by calling the school or sending an email. Teachers are prompt with their responses and can schedule a time that is most convenient to meet. Conferencing is a great way to see how your child is doing in school, both academically and socially. This special time is important to focus on your child, without the hectic atmosphere of drop off and pick up.


Coming to Open House sets a great tone for your child - one that tells them you are going to be involved in their school experience! Other events are held throughout the year, including math nights, literacy nights, and other academic andfun events. Keep updated by checking your child's backpacks for information from the school.


Students served under Title 1 (a federal program that provides funds to improve academic achievement) must review, sign and return the School/Parent Compacts. All Dorman students are served under Title 1. This School/Parent compact outlines what everyone's responsibility is to ensure that your child/children succeed. The school has a responsibility, the child has a responsibility and the parent has a responsibility. We all need to work together; the compact helps that happen. Review with your child/children the commitment page of the School/Parent compact, sign and return it to school. If you would like a copy for yourself please let us know.
