Today's Cool School is Dozier Elementary in Erath.

Back in August of 1972, Dozier Elementary opened its doors for the first time ever with just 271 students in first through third grades led by principal Johnnie Suire.

Today the school starts at PreK and goes through fifth grade. To celebrate 50 years, Principal Andrea Ford, along with Assistant Principal Jessie Leger held a pep rally with the Erath High School band.
