Dear Parent/ Guardian,
I hope you're having a wonderful week.
While it seems like quite a ways away, we'd like to share out the spring MCAS dates with our DMS families. Here are the important dates:
- English Language Arts- April 7 and 8, 2020
- Mathematics- May 12 and 14, 2020
- English Language Arts- April 14 and 16, 2020
- Mathematics- May 18 and 20, 2020
Last year, Duxbury High School was able to revive their co-curricular club, A World of Difference. This club takes high school students and staff and provides them with rigorous training from the Anti-Defamation League to prepare them to educate younger students in districts across the state in anti-bias and community building strategies. Last year, our awesome DHS leaders came and did a number of activities with our 7th graders during iLab. This year, our high school leaders will be running three activities with our 6th graders during one iLab over the next three months. We are excited to bring this opportunity to our students again, and thankful that our high school co-curricular can benefit our students in such meaningful ways. If you would like more information on this partnership, or have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me via email at email@example.com.
- English Language Arts- April 1 and 2, 2020
- Mathematics- May 13 and 14, 2020
- Science, Technology and Engineering- May 18 and 20, 2020
A number of congratulations are in order this week as well. Our DMS Robotics club competed this weekend in the First Lego League middle school robotics competition and did a great job! Second, our DMS Drama club put on two awesome performances of the Nutcracker this weekend! Lastly, I want to congratulate our DMS students who were accepted into the Southeastern District Music Festival. They competed with students from 100 other districts on the south shore. We had more students accepted than almost any other school! Those students are: Jacqueline Bedard, Jillian Chee, Lydia Cho, Milo DiCostanzo, Sean Donnelly, Owen Farrell, Charlie Figler, Lena Harati, Andy Longsjo, Michael O'Malley, Phoebe Roberts, Jack Rubin, Tucker Sampson, Natalie Shepler, Karly Shifrin, Jane Stravin, Juliette Vannoz, Ava Wang, and Gavin Wargo!
