Principal’s Welcome

 

Welcome to Dorsa Elementary!  I am honored to serve as Dorsa’s principal, and am here to work with you in ensuring that your child(ren) has a successful, positive educational experience. Dorsa is home to nearly 400 students in grades TK - 5th.  We have approximately 40 staff members who work together in ensuring students and families have the best experience possible.

Our instructional program provides students access and support to standards-based instruction in English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and English Language Development.  We provide opportunities for hands-on learning through Project-Based Learning methods, individualized instruction via our daily small group blocks, and more!

Not only will your child receive the academic instruction needed to prepare for middle school and beyond, but they will also have opportunities to programs such as:

  • Drama

  • Robotics

  • Performing Arts

  • After school intervention via our very own Soaring Scholars program

  • Structured recess activities through our partnership with Little Heroes

  • After school sports leagues and leadership programs

  • Extended Day Care from YMCA (TK/K) or City Year (1st - 5th)

We are honored to have you join our Dorsa Community!  

In Service,

Mrs. Garcia
