Principal’s Message

     Welcome back to the 2021 - 2022 academic year! I hope you have had a fun and restful summer.  The mission of South Dover Elementary is to provide a meaningful and measurable learning experience for students.  We will focus on providing a safe, positive, student-centered academically comprehensive program that is sensitive to the varied learning styles of all students.   Our goal is to empower our students to be leaders who positively impact their community through leadership, academic, and social/emotional skills.

     As educators we seek to educate every child, and we are constantly striving to research, develop, and implement strategies that will enable each student to achieve.  The overarching theme of our work is to prepare our students to leave here with sharpened abilities to think and act creatively, critically and ethically.

     We take seriously our responsibility for creating pathways for learning so that we can bring out the unique gifts in each student.  Developing students who are engaged in our classrooms as well as in our community, reaffirms the extent to which we have been successful in achieving our mission.

Welcome to a new school year! I am excited to have another opportunity to touch the lives of students, support staff and work with families and the community to make this another successful year.


As I reflect on the vision and mission of Capital School District, it is my goal and responsibility to support instruction and the many efforts our teachers make to teach and reach the students here at  South Dover. Our staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of our students and are committed to doing whatever it takes to achieve the goal of student success. I too am committed and believe we have to educate our students by any means necessary. Building a strong bridge of communication with the home is vital and will only aid in strengthening our South Dover Family.


I encourage all families to visit our school, talk with staff and participate in events offered at the school. Our doors are always open to our families and community members. We know it takes everyone to grow our students and I look forward to the great works we will do together here at  South.

Teamwork makes the dream work!
