Dougherty Elementary School's ForestNation
Say Thanks to Dougherty Elementary School!
We use ForestNation’s tree kit fundraiser to promote Earth Day and to also tie to a science lesson on life science standards, social responsibly. It will help the environment and reduce our carbon foot print, and also to teach students that they can make a difference. We like that ForestNation’s program tied to our belief system here at the school.

Dougherty Elementary School
Dougherty Elementary School provides a safe, positive learning environment that develops self-motivated, independent, and enthusiastic learners who strive toward academic excellence, social responsibility, and personal growth. The goal of the faculty, staff, and parents is to provide a program designed to meet the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of each of our students.
We are proud to be socially responsible
Winners two years in a row for the 4’r program, this is a city program to reduce waste and promote recycling. We won largely in part to our worm farm and garden.
We are also the Golden Sneaker award winner two years in a row with 94% student and staff participation. Also the winner of the Bike to school day.
At Dougherty Elementary, we believe an exemplary and equitable educational program is the collaborative result of students, staff, parents and community working together to develop ethical citizens and life long learners.
