Dolvin Elementary is thankful for all the wonderful volunteers who are rolling up their sleeves and putting reading first. To make book selection easier for children and teachers, the parents are stepping up and coming in to the Dolvin Media Center to place Lexile Reading labels and Guided Reading Levels on the large selection of books in the Dolvin Media Center. This project just started this week and already parents are coming in and making strides in the label process. This big job is being taken on by Dolvin parents, Dolvin PTA and lots of volunteers. The students at Dolvin are seeing how important reading is thanks to the wonderful volunteer spirit of the Dolvin parents.

Joel Pollack, a former Dolvin Elementary School student, recently chose to do his Eagle Scout Project at his old school. Dolvin had a pebble path to the K-1 gardens that was in need of help, and Pollack took the project on, creating a new wooden path that will last for years to come and provide safer walking for the boys and girls.
