March 13 Dora School News

It’s springtime at school also so the kids are all full of tricks, games and laughter. The younger ones rush, rush to be the first in the lunch lines, then rush through their meal so they can rush outside to the playground for some excitement before they have to rush back in for more studies.

Business Professionals of America
Members of the Dora BPA report that their annual brisket dinner was a success. The members began cooking the lunch at 8 a.m. and continued to work until 2 p.m. as they served a big crowd and cleaned the kitchen. They took a short break to present certificates of appreciation to their parents who were their guests for the lunch. The members and advisors wish to express their appreciation to everyone who came to the dinner. Community support of this organization helps make it possible for the members to attend state and national conferences.
