A special kind of learning takes place in music classes that impacts the intellectual and emotional development of our students. Ultimately, we want each student to become the best person possible. Music education offers a pathway to this educational destination.


A Christmas and Valentine party for the class is planned by the room mothers in cooperation with the teacher. Parents wishing to bring cupcakes for their child’s birthday may do so during the regularly scheduled lunch time only. Any other parties must be approved by the Principal.

Physical Education

Students are expected to participate in all P.E. activities unless parents send a written request for non-participation due to illness or injury. Extended illnesses must have a doctor’s excuse. Athletic shoes are suggested.


The Dozier Elementary P.T.A. graciously welcomes you and invites you to become a part of the association. The P.T.A. works on behalf of our children and families and supports Dozier Elementary School.

Response to Instruction (RtI)

According to the Alabama Department of Education, Response to Instruction (RtI) refers to an instructional framework that promotes a well-integrated system connecting general, gifted, supplemental, and special education services in providing high quality, standards-based instruction and intervention that is matched to students’ academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs. RtI combines core instruction, assessment, and intervention within a multi-tiered system to increase student achievement and reduce behavior problems.

Through implementation of RtI, Dozier Elementary identifies and monitors students at risk, use problem-solving and data-based decision making to provide research-based interventions and adjust the intensity of interventions based on the student’s response.

Student Work Samples

“Signed Papers” Envelopes will be sent home every other Tuesday beginning the third week in school for 1st - 5th grade students. It is important that parents review the papers, provide reinforcement, sign the envelope and return the papers to school on the following day.

Substitute Teachers/Student Teachers

Students are expected to cooperate fully with substitute teachers and student teachers. Courteous behavior is expected of all students. Disruptive behavior will result in disciplinary action as usual.


Volunteers are vital to Dozier Elementary. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call the school office or the PTA President. We are very interested to know if our parents have special skills, talents, or interests that could be shared with our students. We value the support of our families and friends
