The dedication of Dorr's teaching staff is second to none as they work tirelessly and together to help every child be his/her personalbest.  

Although the Ohio Department of Education's (ODE) system for rating schools is changing, it is important to reflect that for the past several years, the efforts of Dorr Elementary School students have consistently allowed the school to achieve an "Excellent" rating from the ODE.   

We are very proud of the entire Dorr family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception!

Testimonial from Dorr parent
Brian and Holly Wahl

We love everything about Dorr Elementary! The teachers and administration are completely student-focused, with one common goal - - meeting and exceeding the needs of each and every student. This is done in numerous ways to address the unique needs of every child. It is abundantly apparent that the teachers enjoy working with children, and truly care about every single one of them. There is such positive energy in every classroom, and parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged! We can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else.


Principal's Weekly Message

exceptional - without exception 


Dorr Walk of Fame
Each trimester, Dorr Elementary School students in Grades Two and Three have the opportunity to be recognized for earning Accelerated Reader (AR) points for reading books and passing comprehension quizzes through the school's “Walk of Fame” program.  The Walk of Fame occurs in the cafeteria and allows many children to be recognized and celebtated by their peers.  

At the beginning of the school year, each student is assessed to determine his/her reading level.  Once this reading level is determined, students are encouraged to select books from our library (or the Holland Branch Library as well) that match their reading levels.  After reading a book,students can take a comprehension online quiz to determine if they have used all their skills to become successful in their reading.  Dorr's Walk of Fame is a wonderful program that encourages students to read - the best way to gain better readers!  Parents interested in seeing their child’s reading level are asked to please contact their child’s teacher.

A special "Thank You!" to Mrs. Kahmann for coordinating this fun and rewarding recognition program!  The students love being recognized for reading and earning Accelerated Reader points through the Walk of Fame!

Dorr Alphabet Party
Give me a P!  Give me an A!  Give me an R!  Give me a T!  Give me a Y!  What does it spell?  PARTY!  And that is exactly what our kindergarten students did during their recent Alphabet Party!

While parents were learning about the procedures and routines in a kindergarten classroom and ways to support their children at home with our Kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Amanda Schlageter, Mrs. Barb Eckhart, and Mrs. Kelly Kerns, our kindergarten students were having their own party, complete with frosting cookies with letters of the alphabet!

It was certainly amazing to see the students actively engaged in their learning.  There were a number of activities and a great group of volunteers who were instrumental in making this event such a success!

Thank you to our Kindergarten Team and several members of our staff—Mrs. Amanda Schlageter, Mrs. Barb Eckhart, Mrs. Kelly Kerns, Miss Ashley Grant, Mrs. Lynn Sarno, Mrs. Denise Walsh, and Mrs. Amy Zajkowski, who did a phenomenal job of leading our young people through activities which promoted the alphabet!  Thank you for sharing educational ways to learn about the alphabet as our kindergarten students began their journey in learning how to read!
