Great Job, Well done, you both make DR proud!!
Congratulations to senior vocalist Derek Samreth and sophomore clarinetist Charlie Pike, who were chosen by a competitive regional music audition to represent D-R in the Southeast District Senior Concert Festival. Derek and Charlie will perform in the District Festival in January. In addition, Charlie's score placed him in the top half of all clarinetists who auditioned, earning him a recommendation to move on to try-outs at the state level.

Last Sunday was a big day for DR’s National Honor Society students, Matt Andrade, Jordan Flanagan, Matt McEathron, and Jonathan Ursillo. They represented DR at “Super Sunday” at WGBH Studios in Boston. They are one of 140 high schools from across Massachusetts who competed for a chance to take part in Season 7 of the High School Quiz Show on WGBH. Each academic team took an identical oral quiz of 100 questions based on the Massachusetts curriculum. The top 16 teams will advance to play on a televised, single-elimination, bracketed academic tournament. The season will culminate with a Governor’s Cup Challenge, which will pit Massachusetts’ winner against New Hampshire’s top team. We will find out later this month if our team qualified to be on the televised High School Quiz Show!

This week is one of the most exciting times of the year at Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School. We kicked off Spirit Week on Thursday with America Day (see below for more information and pictures from this week). In addition to Spirit Week, the Dighton-Rehoboth Theater Company put another great performance last night and their last show will be tonight (see more details below). Student Government put on another huge performance for our community raising over 6600 cans and food items that will be donated to both Dighton and Rehoboth Food Pantries. To gain support students utilized social media outlets getting retreated by nationally recognized celebrities. The senior class started a GoFundMe page to raise money for our community. In addition Student Government will donate 15 food baskets for families from the Penny Drive Wars. This is a prime example of the DR Difference. #ContinueToMakeUsPROUD!
Block Schedule Update:
Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School would like to announce that the current block schedule (4x4) will remain as the high school schedule for next year and until further notice. The scheduling committee last year decided to evaluate and completely vet out a 7 period schedule. Due to extensive research by our staff, it was determined this week that the 7 period schedule that was proposed did not meet the needs of Dighton-Rehoboth. As a result, the block scheduled will remain the schedule until further notice.
Peace for Paris: #DRPeace4Paris

One of our newest Career & Technical Pathways being offered to incoming 9th graders is the study of Environmental Technologies & Sustainability! In this 4 year program students will take a very active role in developing and maintaining "Green" initiatives within the entire District and communities.
The Career Major is based upon activity! Students have a unique opportunity to participate in extensive, concentrated environmental studies, and to conduct in-depth laboratory and field studies not typically available in a traditional academic setting. The philosophy of the Environmental Technology program is to connect students interested in the environmental field with environmental scientists and engineers, community and state officials, and other environmental organizations, to investigate and solve real-world environmental issues that impact our students' future.
This week our SAIL and other students went into the community and raked leaves for a surprise community service event. This member of our community was out of town and when they arrive home next week, they will be surprised to find out that Dighton-Rehoboth students helped out in a time of need. Thank you students for representing the DR Difference!

On Monday, Upper level Spanish and Portuguese students attended a Latin American Music Performance at the Columbus Theater in Providence. Students toured Latin America musically and were exposed to dances, music, and traditional attire from all over L.A. such as Mariachi, salsa, merengue, cumbia, tango, and the samba. It was a fantastic cultural experience and students Ryan Andrade and Hannah Saleeba participated on stage.
The DR Mock Trial Team spent the weekend at Harvard University completing a two day seminar with the Harvard Crimson Mock Trial Team, National Champions. Teams from across the country attended the seminar and the weekend included a tour of the campus, an ice cream social, an admissions question and answer panel with Harvard students, and a trip to the Coop bookstore. Students concluded the weekend with a scrimmage against another high school. The DR Mock Trial Team came in 8th in the state last year and hopes to better their record this year.
