Principal's Message

Dear Students, Families, and Community Members,

Welcome to Dommerich Elementary, where our daily pledge is, “we believe we can learn, we can learn and we will learn!”  At Dommerich, we use the whole child approach to aid each child in becoming successful students and citizens.  Dommerich has a highly effective and dedicated staff that has enjoyed teaching here for many years.  We enjoy a successful partnership with parents and the community to help us meet the needs of the student body, as well as serve as a hub to bring families together in support of educational programming.  Our students have many opportunities to broaden their interests through enriching activities in and out of the classroom.   We are committed to carrying on the tradition of excellence that makes Dommerich an exceptional school.  One measure that shows this commitment to excellence is the great number of parents who attended Dommerich themselves and now have chosen to educate their children here.  We thank you for choosing Dommerich.   

Yours in Education,
Karen Verano, Principal
Dommerich Elementary School
