Posted On:
Friday, February 02, 2018

AS MOST OF YOU KNOW BY NOW, ALL SCHOOLS IN ALABAMA RECEIVED A REPORT CARD FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION THURSDAY. WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO EXPLAIN HOW OUR SCHOOL WAS GRADED.

NINETY PERCENT OF OUR REPORT CARD GRADE WAS BASED ON ONE TEST – LAST YEAR’S ASPIRE. TEN PERCENT OF OUR GRADE IS CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM/ EVEN EXCUSED STUDENT ABSENCES WERE COUNTED. DODGE RECEIVED A 79 – C AS OUR GRADE.

WHAT THE REPORT CARD DOES NOT REPRESENT ARE ALL OF OUR OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS AT DODGE. SUCH AS…

OUR STUDENT AND STAFF COMMUNITY SERVICE. WE’RE DEDICATED TO TEACHING OUR STUDENTS TO BEING VALUABLE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY. SO FAR THIS YEAR WE HAVE RAISED OVER $600 DOLLARS FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH, $200 FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH, DONATED 1000 CANNED GOOD ITEMS TO A LOCAL PANTRY, COLLECTED BLANKETS, GLOVES, SCARVES, AND MONEY FOR LOCAL SHELTERS, VOLUNTEERED AT THE RONALD MCDONAL HOUSE, AND PARTICIPATED IN NUMEROUS COMMUNITY RACES.

DODGE HAS RECEIVED MULTIPLE GRANTS TO SUPPPORT OUR TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM. WE HAVE COLLABORATION LABS AND FAB LABS WHERE STUDENTS WORK TOGETHER TO COMPLETE VIDEOS, DIGITAL BOARDS, AND OTHER PRODUCTS AT THE CONCLUSION OF THEIR PBL UNITS. WE PARTICIPATE IN THE REGIONAL AND STATE ROBOTICS AND TECH FAIRS AS WELL AS THE MCPSS FILM FESITVAL.  EVERY YEAR WE HAVE WINNERS AT EACH OF THESE COMPETITIONS.

STUDENTS LEARN ABOUT BECOMING AND STAYING HEALTHY AND FIT AT DODGE WITH OUR EMPHASIS ON WELLNESS. WE HAVE A RUNNING CLUB, READ AND RIDE ROOMS, SEMESTER PARK AND WALK EVENTS, DAILY BRAIN BREAKS, AND AN ANNUAL BIKE RODEO AND FITNESS NIGHT, JUST TO NAME A FEW.

STUDENTS LOVE COMING TO SCHOOL AS IS EVIDENCED OUR EXCELLENT 96+% ATTENDANCE RATE. 

DODGE IS ONE OF ONLY A HANDFUL OF INTERNATIONAL TALENTS UNLIMITED DEMONSTRATION SITES.  WE ARE A BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL, HAVE BEEN NOMINATED AS A CLAS SCHOOL OF DISTINCTION, HAVE STUDENT-SELECTED CLUBS, NATIONAL ELEMENTARY HONOR SOCIETY, AND STUDENT COUNCIL. OUR MATH TEAM AND PTA ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR SUCCESSES.

WE WELCOME EVERYONE TO COME DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE AT DODGE ELEMENTARY, BECAUSE WE BELIEVE WE ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN ONE TEST SCORE.
