  • Dove 3rd grade Gives Back

    Third grade students at Dove Elementary recently donated over 1,600 cans of food to the Tarrant County Food Bank, as part of a unit on economics.  The cans were raised through donations by all Dove students- who earned two "Economics Dollars" for every can they brought in last week.  Economics Dollars were spent by Dove students at the Third grade Economics Fair held at Dove earlier this week.

  • Dove 5th Grade Visits Sky Ranch


    Fifth grade students at Dove recently engaged in learning experiences while at Sky Ranch in Van, TX.  Over the three day trip, camp "Funologists" provided a multitude of hands-on learning experiences to connect learning around science concepts such as forces of motions: gravity, inertia, weathering and erosion, deposition; limnology, the scientific method, measurement, adaptations, characteristics of living things, and environmental factors on an ecosystem.  Students left Sky Ranch with a brain full of science knowledge, many new friends, and tons of fun memories.  Dove would like to thank 5th grade teachers, PTA and the many parents that volunteered their time to make this year's trip to Sky Ranch the best ever!
