Community Time

On Wednesday, February 8th, we will host our annual “Pack the Gym” MS Basketball event in the Large Gym of Modell’s Sports Complex here at D-E.  Our entire division will cheer on our Girls’ MS Basketball team as they take on Elisabeth Morrow School at 3:00 PM followed by our Boys’ (white team), who will play against the Collegiate School at 4:15 PM.  Students, faculty, and parents will not only enjoy an afternoon of basketball but will enjoy the free pizza served in between games.  The players are pumped, the students are excited and we’re ready to…  PACK- the- GYM!!!

Yesterday’s Assembly was really relevant to our student body. Mr. Shaw, Director of Technology, gave a great presentation on social media citizenship. At various points during the assembly, we responded anonymously, using iPads to questions about usage. Within seconds, he posted the results for all to see and then used the data to fine-tune his remarks.

Next week’s assembly will feature the work of our 8th grade Drama students and their CRUSH projects. And the week following is our celebration of Black History Month, with an assembly presented by our Upper School students.

After 9 hours of coursework and riding yesterday, we now have 3 certified indoor cycling instructors on campus! There was even a D-E parent of a 6th grader there!
