DR Military Tribute Ceremony Set for Friday, May 23rd at 6:00

Dighton-Rehoboth has been since September collecting information from the DR Alumni to pay tribute to those who have dedicated service to their country serving in the five different military branches (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard).  We have been able to research about 200 past alumni going back from the first graduating Class of 1961.  This project could not have been accomplished without the help of so many students and faculty.  In addition to the flag and the plaques that have been constructed at DR (Mr. Levesque in Carpentry, Mr. Souza in Machine Shop, and Mrs. Rutkowski in Art) from students and staff, we have been fortunate to have had a TV donated (by WOW Media) that will display the pictures of the service members.  Also 12 students are working with Mr. Michael Higgins (The Wood Carver, seen earlier this year carving our Falcon) to create benches that will also be a part of the DR Military Tribute display. Our Unveiling Ceremony will take place on Friday, May 23rd at 6:00.  Anyone in the community is welcome to attend.   If you have any questions, please call Mr. Braga at 508-252-5025 x5615.   We would like to thank all of our sponsors: Mozzone Lumber, O'Reilly Electric, WOW Media, Charles Harris (Class of 1961), Joe Pimento (Class of 1961) National Honors Society, DR Leo Club, and Peer Leaders for their donations to make this possible.  We would also like to thank all of the members of this project who played a key role in making this project a reality: Donald Hirschy (Dighton Veterans Officer), Bill Saunders (Rehoboth Veterans Officer), Linda Borges-Dubois (Served 30+ years in the Navy and Science Teacher), Wendy Rutkowski (Art Teacher), Gary Levesque (Carpentry Teacher), David Souza (Machine Shop), Tony Nardozzi (TV Production teacher), Pamela Green Bell (Class of 1961), Kevin Braga (Project Manager, served 4 years in the Navy, Assistant Principal), and Rachel Sousa who is currently a junior who has gone above and beyond during this project.

Below are some pictures of the project that have been captured along the way.

Quinnipiac Freshman Brandon Shileikis Named MAAC Baseball Rookie of the Week - Quinnipiac

Guidance



Throughout the day today the following issues have been brought to the Guidance Department’s attention in regards to scheduling.
·          

  • Some internet programs have not been working. Please try Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer.

  • Students are not able to pick courses from their cell phones.

  • Students need to pick a total of 40 credits and 3 alternate classes at the minimum.

  • Students do not need to pick a course from all the options listed. These are just simply listing all the courses that are available for the particular grade level. I.E. all CTE courses are listed for grade 11 but if your child is not in CTE they would just disregard this.

  • When students click on the requests side tab some students show the entry mode is not available. If “entry mode” is in the top left corner click on it and it will change to now allow students to pick courses.

  • All students should be attempting to pick classes with the help of parents, teachers, reviewing the program of study, etc. before they make an appointment to sit with their assigned Guidance Counselor.

  • If a particular course is not listed and you want to sign up for it; please email your Guidance Counselor and she will add it to your schedule. If a course is not listed in the program of study it is not being offered this year.  For example if you are currently in Pre-Calculus as a grade 10 student and will be enrolling next year for Calculus which is a grade 12 course.

  • If a student has completed the foreign language two year requirement and wishes to continue with a foreign language course, these courses are selected under world languages area and not under electives. Students can also sign up for two foreign language courses if they would like to by selecting both courses.

  • If you have any questions or concerns please contact your child’s Guidance Counselor.

World Autism Awareness Day at D-R T

This past Wednesday, April 2nd,  National Autism Awareness Day was celebrated at DR. Faculty and staff were able to wear Autism Awareness Day shirts while students participated by wearing the color blue. In addition, during lunch, students were able to sign puzzle pieces which will later be hung up in a large ribbon in the school for all to see. Many faculty, staff, and students also showed their support by wearing puzzle-piece pins and reading about the disease on informational cards placed on their lunch table.
   Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability the world is faced with today. One in sixty eight children are diagnosed with this disease, and boys are even more likely, with a diagnosis in one in fifty four. There is no cure for Autism, however the students of DR were able to raise awareness and show their support for a disease so prominent in our community. A special thank you goes to all-star student, Zoe Karavolis,who planned the whole event...
