Welcome to James Dobson Elementary School!

A Message from the Principal

Dear Dobson School Families:

My name is Khloé Williams-Lawani and it is with great pleasure and excitement that I am introducing myself as the newly appointed principal of the amazing James Dobson School. I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of such a wonderful school family. I am fortunate to be able to work with Dr. Szczesny to ensure a smooth transition for the 2021-2022 school year. The strong family atmosphere between students, staff and teachers is truly admirable and I look forward to continuing to inspire connectedness to ensure all school community members know that they are welcome, valued and necessary.
