Mabel's Labels

This year, more than ever before, labeling your child's items is critical. Labeling all of the items that come into the school helps to prevent the spread of germs by ensuring lookalike items do not get mixed up. 

Visit Mabels Labels and select “Support a Fundraiser” to support Dogwood Elementary School PTO.

If you have any questions, please contact Tiffany Smith, PTO Ways and Means Chairperson.

From the Librarian


Parents, please help your child place library reservations through our online catalog. A short instructional video is here. Username: P(lunch number) Password: Last Name

The Dogwood catalog can be found here and it is on the DES symbaloo under "Library Search."

Did you know your child can take AR tests from home, 7 days a week? Here is a short instructional video on the process. This is the link to the AR site. You cannot do a google search for AR; our site is specific to our school. Students have a unique username and password. If your child does not know theirs, please email the school librarian, Mrs. McIntyre.

Carline Reminders

We appreciate your help to keep everyone safe in carline. Please do not allow students to exit the car until adults are present at 8:30am. Students should not be waiting by the door. (All carline cars should line up on Dogwood Rd and wait until 8:30am. to begin entering the DES back circle.)


Distance Learning Attendance


Thank you for working with teachers to help support students who are working from home. If your child is doing distance learning for several days or everyday, please make sure to communicate with the teacher about the work they are completing. Teachers are posting the required instruction and assignments in Schoology. In order for students to be present, teachers must confirm that students have completed school work (examples- email, NearPod, Seesaw post, watched instructional videos, attended a zoom...) Please email Mrs. Phipps if you have any questions. 



Yearbooks are on sale now! Order yours today through My School Bucks. Yearbooks cost $35 and the purchase deadline is Friday, February 26th.

A 1/4 page fifth grade ad or a 1/2 page business ad are $25. The purchase deadline for ads is Friday, December 18th. Purchase of an ad does NOT mean you have purchased a yearbook. They are two separate purchases.

Because we are having events from a distance this year, we need your help to gather your best images for this year’s yearbook. Please email your top 10 images to the yearbook staff. Please be sure to include the grade, teacher's name, and event in the email.

Contact Annabella Brandon with any questions.
