Fourth-grade testing

The Dora fourth-graders will be taking the NAEP test on Wednesday. The National Assessment of Educational Progress assesses what students know and can do in core subject areas. The NAEP test is often referred to as the 'Nation's Report Card.'

Dora license plates

The sophomore class is selling Dora Coyotes license plates for $25 each as a fundraiser for its class. The plates are deep red, with a coyote howling at the moon in the foreground.

You may purchase a license plate at the school office. If you want to add your last name we can order a personalized plate for an additional $5. Come by the office anytime to see a sample.
