The Dodson PTO will hold several charity events during the month of May.

It’s difficult to believe that there are less than 20 days left before summer break. Even though the school year is coming to an end, Dodson Elementary in Hermitage has a number of events to look forward to this last month of school.

May 3 – This is the date for the Big Payback. Dodson is participating in this 24 hour, community-wide, online giving day that supports the work of area non-profits. We encourage you to spread the word to family and friends and donate to Dodson. Go to for more information.

May 6 – We are capping off Teacher Appreciation Week with a Staff luncheon. We currently need 6 side dishes, 3 beverages, 2 breads, and 5 desserts. Go to and search under the coordinator name Vong and the password Bulldog. Help us show our appreciation to our generous staff for all they do!
May 19 – We are once again proud to present Dodson’s Talent Show Thursday, May 19th at 6pm. Mark your calendar for this exciting event and come out to support our student performers.

It’s time to finish our school year strong and begin planning for next year. Dodson PTO Board Member Nomination ballots will be sent home this week. Please take the time to consider nominating yourself or someone that you know could fill a position well. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
