Principal Sheridan Weekly Letter 2/27/23

Good morning Doss Families – 

Thank Doss PTA for hosting a successful Hootie Hula – Daughter Dance. It was wonderful to see the students dressed up, dancing the night away, and documenting their joy with the photo booths. 

A huge shout out to Ms. Crawford for chairing the Doss Science Fair and her helpers Ms. Beardsley and Ms. Wiley. We sent 16 Doss students to the Regional Science Fair last Saturday. Doss came away with 12 – 1st place winners and 4 – 2nd place winners. Way to go Doss Owls!

1st Place Winners:

Irene Z, Riji C , Lily P, Evelyn W, Corina D, Julia J & Tatum L, Emmie E, Luca K, Lulu M, Madeleine F, Jasmine P, Ari V, Stella C

2nd Place Winners:

Teagan H, Elim B,  Johanna L, Jasmine P

A few friendly reminders:

  • Tardies – The tardy bell rings at 7:40am. It is very important for students to be in their classrooms and ready to learn by 7:40am. Being on time sets the tone for the day.
  • Lunch with your child – We love to see parents having lunch with their children. Please remember that you may only have lunch with your child and sit in the designated dining areas. Having other students join you is not allowed.
  • Dismissal – please be patient and considerate in the designated carlines and walk up parent pick up areas.  Remember no parking on the school side of Nortledge as it interferes with the 4th/5th grade carline. If you are in need of another car sign, please reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher.

It’s time to register your child for the 23-24 school year!  Our goal is to have all families registered by spring break as it is important for us when staffing for next school year.

The Online Registration and Transfer Request portal is now open for the 2023-24 school year. 

  • New families will be able to continue registering online for the current school year throughout the spring semester.
  • ALL returning families must re-register their students for the 2023-24 school year. Please provide  a copy of your gas or light bill for proof of address. 
  • Additional information related to enrollment, registration, and transfers is listed below.

Important links for families regarding enrollment, registration, and transfers: 

  1. Enrollment landing page:
  2. Important dates and deadlines:
  3. For questions, please direct families to Let’s Talk 

I look forward to seeing you at my first Parent Principal Coffee this Friday, March 3rd at 8am in the Doss Community Room. I will be sharing plans for Pride Week, next year’s staffing, and campus happenings. 

Have a wonderful week, 

Principal Sheridan
