Pan-Mass Challenge Cyclists visit DR

The Dighton-Rehoboth School Community would like to wish the best of luck to all PMC cyclists this weekend.  The Pan-Mass Challenge raises money for life-saving cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through an annual bike-a-thon that crosses the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since its founding in 1980, the PMC has successfully melded support from committed cyclists, volunteers, corporate sponsors and individual contributors. All are essential to the PMC's goal and model: to attain maximum fundraising efficiency while increasing its annual gift. Our hope and aspiration is to provide Dana-Farber's doctors and researchers with the necessary resources to discover cures for all cancers. Click here to learn more about the Impact of PMC fundraising at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Last year the PMC raised $41 million and PMC goal for 2015 is $50 million.  If you would like to find out more information, please click here for the PMC website.  Good luck!  #PMC #DRPride

Teachers, student mentors prepare for the Freshmen Transition Program

Teachers and student mentors spent the day preparing for the Class of 2019's arrival beginning August 3rd. The Freshmen Transition Program is preparing for another successful year.

Project Contemporary Competitiveness (PCC)

Today, Mr. Braga had the pleasure of being invited to Stonehill College for the PCC Open House.  There are over 20 courses that students can enroll for six weeks.  The PCC Mission Statement is as follows: "To provide an intellectually enriching, socially stimulating, affordable six week residential summer program at the campus of Stonehill College in a friendly, supportive, learning environment with a carefully constructed balance of freedoms and responsibilities for mature, tenth, and eleventh grade high ability students who are open to the excitement of learning, and ready for a challenge."

We had the opportunity to tour several classrooms and interact with the students.  During our visit, it was clear that the students were engaged and it was a well organized program.  Dighton-Rehoboth will make students more aware of these opportunities during the registration period, which takes place usually around January.  To view their course catalog please click here.

Below students are working on lesson plans on how to teach students to read.  In this class called, “Warm Cookies and Milk” students are learning child development skills.  Students were developing lesson plans with objectives that have both clear and high expectations.  

Students below are working in their physics class. Students were testing their solar powered cars.  

“I’m With the Band” offers students who play instruments used in rock/pop bands the opportunity to play together in a band.  We had the opportunity to hear them play through a couple of verses and they sounded amazing!  

In Digital Photography, the students were learning how to use the green screen.  In this photo the one student was “flying through the air.”

Ms. Mathias will be at DRRHS on Friday, July 24th from 10-11:30am to begin distributing yearbooks to students, Feel free to come pick up the yearbook during this time. Any questions? Please contact Ms. Mathias at
