Dover Family School Alliance
Back-to-School Picnic a Great Success!
On August 25th, DFSA hosted its first back-to-school picnic for families and educators throughout the district. We were thrilled to host families from each of Dover’s schools – as well as principals, paraprofessionals, case workers and school coordinators – on a beautiful summer afternoon at Henry Law Park. Our event offered a chance for us to welcome Christine Boston into her new role as Director of Pupil Personnel Services (aka, Director of Special Education). The kids had a ball, and it was a wonderful way to launch back into the crazy back-to-school week!
During the week of June 3rd, the DFSA will be honoring 100+ Para-professionals that work within the Dover School District to thank them for a job well-done. As you know, they are often the people who work most closely with our children with special needs, and we believe that their hard work, caring, and support of our children should be recognized.
In additional to a special breakfast, each Para will receive a flower and a note of thanks. If you or your child would like to send in a personal note for any particular Para, we will be happy to distribute it to him/her at the breakfast. If you are interested in donating food or paper goods for the breakfast, please email us and let us know what school your child(ren) attend – we’ll get you a list of needed items.
Also, we are soliciting local organizations and businesses to donate items such as gift cards, books and beauty services. If you have an item to donate, please let us know!
