 Congratulations on your retirement, Dr. Dodson! We will miss you!

Porterdale Elementary School Principal Dr. Lizzella Dodson received a send-off fit for a queen during the week of May 11-15. Porterdale students and staff celebrated Dr. Dodson with themed dress days and class bulletin board dedications. On May 14, students, staff, colleagues, friends, and family gathered for a special parade and luncheon in her honor. Dr. Dodson retires at the end of the 2014-15 school year after 15 years at Porterdale ES and 38 years in education!

Dr. Dodson says that the “Porterdale Elementary School staff is incredible and I have been truly blessed to work with such a fine group of professionals and to serve as their principal for 15 years.”

Dr. Dodson further states, “I will miss my Porterdale family and will always have a special place in my heart for Porterdale Elementary.”
