We live in a world surrounded by technology. We know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, they will need computer skills and the ability to know HOW technology works. For this reason, every child at Dove Hill participated in "The Hour of Code" on Monday, December 12th. Every student from TK to 6th grade learned how to 'code' a program on the computer. It is a skill that all can learn. Go to the website: www.hourofcode.com For more information and to have fun learning a new skill. Dove Hill is committed to teaching 21st Century skills to every child.
Thanks to all the families who attended our annual Christmas Craft Night. It was great to see all our students having so much fun making Christmas crafts and waiting so eagerly to take a picture with Santa Claus. We want to thank our Home and School Club and volunteers for hosting such an AMAZING EVENT! Your hard work and dedication makes Dove Hill a great school. Also a HUGE THANK YOU to the 'YMCA' Santa Claus who took time from his busy schedule to come and take pictures with our Dove Hill students and listen to their wish lists.
The December character trait is Respect. Treat others with respect. Follow the Golden Rule. Be tolerant of differences. Use good manners, and not bad language. Be considerate of the feelings of others. Do not threaten, hit or hurt anyone. Deal peacefully with anger, insults and disagreements.
