School Snapshot...

Could you use a buddy? Springhurst 1st grade teachers Elizabeth Pinkava and Tricia Zarro  received a grant from the Dobbs Ferry Schools Foundation to install three "Buddy Benches" (1 per playground) at the elementary school. All lunch aides and faculty are being trained on how to support students on the playground utilizing the Buddy Benches. A wonderful way to foster kindness, friendship and empathy in our students and school.

Dear Community Member,

On May 17th, the 2016/2017 Dobbs Ferry School Budget passed by a vote of 318 to 84. The budget will enable the District to continue to provide an outstanding education to all of our students within a sound financial framework and we are grateful for your continued support.

The three trustees will start a new three-year term beginning July 1st and expiring on June 30, 2019. Congratulations to Jean, Louis and Rita. I look forward to working closely with all of them over the next year. 

Thank you to our wonderful school community. The school budget results affirm our residents’ strong commitment to the Dobbs Ferry School District and its mission.
