John J. Doran Community School


February Highlight

Grade 5 Weather Unit

Chief Meteorologist Mark Searles from NBC 10 came to Doran to speak with fifth grade about how he uses technology and weather instruments to create his weather forecast.  Students received an inside look to what it is like to work at a news station, while connecting what they learned inside the classroom to the community around them.  Having the presentation after completing their weather unit was a fun and exciting way to apply their learning to the outside world. 


Team Doran Dolphins

As some of you may know we have two SMILES mentoring programs in our school, and a third one will be up and running in a few weeks!  MILES for SMILES is an annual event that helps raise funds for the SMILES program.  If you are interested in walking or running in the 5K on the Doran team please contact Karen Lima.  The event will be held at Umass Dartmouth on March 22nd.  We have also set up a donation page if you'd like to donate click the link above.  Please consider contributing to help support this mentoring program!
Thank you!!
