Fall Fest 2017!

Fall Fest 2017!

Garden Day!

On October 7, 2017, Farm LA, volunteers and Dorris Place students and community members participated in Garden Day. The Dorris Place Garden needed some weeding, trimming and planting. With the help of volunteers and items donated by Home Depot of Cypress Park the Dorris Place Garden was transformed to a magical place where students can read, plant and observe nature right on their campus. Thank you to all of those that participated and contributed to the GREAT day!!!!

L.A. County Fair Visit

On September 7, 2017, Dorris Place Elementary 6th grade students had the fantastic opportunity to visit the L.A. County Fair. Thanks to the generosity of METRO our Tigers traveled in style to the Fair parking lot. Dorris students met the CEO of METRO Arthur Leahty at Union Station before boarding the train. He shared with our students the experience of growing up in nearby Highland Park and working hard in school in order to get to his fantastic job. Dorris Place Tigers enjoyed riding the rails and visiting the L.A. County Fair.
