Our D-E Community

In the Garden: It’s seed-saving time!  7th grade DIG students practiced wet and dry
seed saving techniques and begin their study of seed types and the anatomy of a seed. Parent volunteers enjoy fried green tomatoes prepared by the students.

MS Student-Leaders: It is that time of year again . . .  the D-E Lower, Middle and Upper Schools are running a food drive to help local families have food for the Thanksgiving holiday. In the Middle School, the drive is being organized by students who are interested and want an opportunity to take a leadership role. This year, we have a committee of seven young adolescents who will organize, publicize and lead this worthwhile event. Look forward to more details about the School’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, in the near future.

Upcoming Events:

In addition to the Parent Forums for the Middle School take place starting Tuesday, November 7 (for Grade 6)  in Hulst House at 8:30 AM, other upcoming events include special events for D-E parents/ guardians only as well as the entire family.  For details on these and other D-E School upcoming events visit www.d-e.org/calendar or go to http://pa.d-e.org/category/ms/
