Principal's Welcome

Principal’s Message

Thank you for visiting the South Dover Elementary School Website! We hope that you will find it helpful as a resource and in learning about our school community.

South Dover Elementary School is a state-of-the-art facility with a highly skilled, committed, and caring staff. I feel fortunate to be part of a school and district so focused on student learning, and committed to high expectations, leadership, innovation and collaboration. 

South Dover is proud to share that through the work of committed staff, students, and families we were awarded the National Title I Distinguished School Award in 2017.  As selected by the National Title I Association, due to academic achievement South Dover Elementary School was one of just two schools in the state earning this award prestigious.



South is blessed with a creative and enthusiastic PTF and a supportive community that is always willing to lend a hand. Administrators and teachers everywhere recognize the important contributions parents make toward a child’s success in school. There is no question about it - success at school begins at home. Parents are the single most important variable in a child’s schooling. Parents model their personal ideals and expectations in front of their children daily. In my opinion, one of the most important factors pertaining to student success is the partnership between the school and parents. It is imperative that we work together for the best interest of children.

Entering this school year, I remain firmly committed to helping our students achieve academic excellence, as they strive toward becoming contributing members of an ever-changing society. I have high expectations for the students of South Dover Elementary. With the everlasting determination of our knowledgeable and caring staff and the support of a great surrounding community, I am confident our students will reach their full potential.

With my “open door” policy, I think you will find me to be accessible, honest and compassionate. I look forward to earning your trust and respect in the years to come.

Message from the Associate Principal

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!
