7 Mindsets is a proven self-determination, character education and youth empowerment program that changes the way students think, interact and live.

The 7 Mindsets are:
1. Everything is Possible
2. Passion First
3. We are Connected
4. 100% Accountable
5. Attitude of Gratitude
6. Live to Grow
7. The Time is Now

SWIM is our school wide discipline plan that all students follow each day. Having these expectations displayed in each classroom provides consistency among students and creates an overall positive school climate for everyone.
Students at Dolvin:
I Follow Directions
Make Safe Choices
Teachers and staff at Dolvin can nominate students who deserve to be recognized for making outstanding choices. Dynamite Dolphins are not limited to just inside the classroom, it is a school wide initiative that encourages good citizenship. Students who are recognized are invited to Mrs. Zoll and Ms. McConnell’s office for a personal congratulation for going above and beyond!
Kids Care is a community outreach program sponsored by fourth and fifth graders at Dolvin. This program teaches kids how to be proactive in responding to the needs of the community.
Some of the projects involved include:
- Food Pantries
- Childhood cancer
- Writing letters to soldiers
- Wow of Wishes wrapping
At Dolvin, Student Council is a student-selected club for third, fourth, and fifth graders. The purpose of the student-led club is for studens to work together to brainstorm ideas and put them into action in order to help the community, student-chosen charities or the school. For example, last year the student did a toy collection for Toys forTots before the December holiday. Working together, they created advertisements and commercials beforehand and then counted the approximately 900 toys collected. As they are working together, the students are using their higher-order thinking skills to become leaders for their classes and eventually their communities while learning how to listen and make decisions together. .
