It's not every day a human-size Etch-A-Sketch roams the halls of Dove Public Charter Schools. But that's exactly what could be found when high school student Lesly Morales participated in Charity Week by dressing as her favorite "Toy Story" character and reminding the community that it has a friend in Dove Science Academy OKC.
During the recent seven-day fundraiser, students paid $1 to dress according to the day's theme and an additional $1 to wear jeans instead of uniform slacks.
Dove Science Academy will once again recognize mathematics as an important pillar in the education system and life with an upcoming Oklahoma Math Challenge.
Designed to engage students with a passion for mental contests, the Oklahoma Math Challenge will be from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Feb. 4th at Dove Science Academy OKC, 919 NW 23rd Street and on Feb 18th at Dove Science Academy-Tulsa, 280 S. Memorial Dr.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Does a tragic death mean murder? A cold, dead body; blood on an aspirin bottle; a suspicious computer search history — these are the facts, Dove Science Academy Oklahoma City freshman had to consider as part of a brand new forensic science course. A mock trial at the end of the semester tied together science, investigation procedures, legal methods and theories while teaching students what it means to find justice and forcing them to consider that tragedy does not guarantee conviction.
From filing search warrants to collecting evidence to recording and analyzing testimonies, students, a.k.a. “Dove Science Academy Police Department,” searched for answers in the untimely death of Fletcher D. Bear, a “student” and stuffed animal with a bright future cut short. With only the knowledge that Bear was rushed to a hospital after ingesting a toxic amount of aspirin, students had to piece together a puzzle that led them to file a First Degree Murder case against Jason Mack, defendant and dean of discipline.
"My mother is like a warrior to me."
Powerful are a son's reflections about his mother's value. Ramiro Garcia, Dove Science Academy (DSA) Elementary fifth grader, read these loving words to his mother, Gladys Garcia, during an Oklahoma Mothers Association's ceremony April 5, at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
"She protects me from danger and is always there for me. She loves me, and I love her...She's reliable, independent, smart, pretty and nice. She does everything to protect and nurture me," Ramiro continued as tears filled his mother's eyes and she embraced him.
The winner of the Oklahoma Mothers Association's essay contest, "What My Mother Means to Me," Ramiro said finding inspiration for his essay was easy.
"She's an amazing mom!" he exclaimed.

OKLAHOMA CITY — With each win, Dove Science Academy coach Cam Case nearly wants to pinch himself and wake up. But it's not a dream.
Dove Science Academy — a public charter school — is winning soccer games at a rate it never has before. The Rockets play in their first state semifinal game Tuesday night at Miami.
“It's been one of those seasons you can't believe is happening,” Case said. “It's one of those things you don't want to jinx yourself.”
The Rockets have gone from a little-known program that used a makeshift practice field to 13-2 this season and winners of two straight in the Class 4A playoffs.
OKLAHOMA CITY — Silence rapidly engulfed what normally is a very rowdy soccer field as a stadium-size tifo (or banner) unfurled and read, “The spirit of this city will not be defeated.” Fans and players paused to reflect on how Oklahoma City has grown and unified since April 19, 1995.
As part of Dove Science Academy’s (DSA) dedication to support its community, students worked with The Grid, Energy FC’s supporter group, to create a tifo featuring the survivor tree that was displayed at last year’s Energy FC season opener; a day before the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. A year later, Lampstead Media honored DSA and The Grid’s community spirit and the Oklahoma Standard with the premier of the documentary “Tifo.”
First the sound of soft rain hit the downbeat. Then the scratch of claves alternated beats, growing louder and more insistent. When finally the boom of a hand drum vibrated throughout the gymnasium of Dove Science Academy (DSA) on Thursday, Jan. 28. As high school seniors stood in a circle with eyes shut, Dr. Sophia Lee, Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) Director of Music Therapy, directed this mishmash, impromptu orchestra and discussed the scientific and more abstract ways in which music can influence human behavior and health.
As part of Dove Science Academy’s mission to continue to achieve a 100 percent college acceptance rate and successful college preparation, Southwestern Oklahoma State University professors and department chairs, including music therapy, were welcomed to Dove’s OKC campus.
Dove Science Academy Elementary students are learning from community leaders what character means to them.
The school is inviting community members from all fields to present core value talks on values they implement in their lives daily. Core value talks are short, to the point and engaging.
The eight core values are responsible, respectful, open-minded, confident, kind, empathetic, teamwork and success.

It’s simple: leaders give back. Leaders build relationships that cultivate a thriving community and culture of respect for those in need. Students at Dove Science Academy Oklahoma City (DSA OKC) strive to be those leaders who make powerful community connections throughout the year, and most recently they spread Christmas cheer at Grace Living Center.
As part of the high school’s College Readiness and Leadership Program students were encouraged to give up a few hours of their weekend to make a meaningful impact in the community. During their visit, about 30 students handed roses and Christmas cards to residents as well as sang carols for entertainment.
“When we have volunteers, our residents feel like they matter. It’s just so special to them, and they feel like a part of the community. It really means something,” said Activity Director Kellie Prather.
At Dove Science Academy success is more than an ambition, it is a tradition. Thus, it came as no surprise to faculty and staff that Mia Leonard, a senior at Dove Science Academy Tulsa, would push her own limits and strive for the very best in academic excellence. With a recent full ride, academic scholarship to attend Stanford University, Leonard’s efforts have reaped rewards to ensure her future, continued success.
Leonard said DSA Tulsa has helped cultivate her interest in science and computers and is grateful for the help of her academic advisor Servet Oksuz as well as the program Questbridge that helped her with college admission and scholarships.
“Dove has robotics, and we have a lot of science labs and AP classes…just all of these opportunities and the ability to dual enroll,” Leonard said. “And after coming to Dove, I noticed that a lot of my friends at other schools were getting caught up in gangs, parties and drama, and I’m not that kind of person. Here, I have friends who are interested in the same things as I am like science and computers.”
Leonard said she is excited to go to Stanford because of its top science program as she plans to study human biology and later attend medical school. Stanford University is ranked No. 4 nationally and is of the same caliber as the University of Chicago and Columbia University.
Dove Science Academy Elementary School students happily hopped on and off the Rolling Thunder Book Bus Tuesday, Dec. 8, with smiles and new books in hand, ready for new adventures and literacy challenges.
The Rolling Thunder Book Bus is a converted bus that travels to schools, community centers, museums, parks and other sites throughout the year to promote reading and literacy. Each student who visits the bus receives a free book to promote a love of reading. The book bus includes an inventory of at least 3,000 books for pre-school through fifth grade readers. To date, the Thunder Bus has made over 1,000 appearances and distributed over 100,000 books.
