This Week and the Week Ahead

This week we had a short week and it is still not yet completed, since we are hosting over nearly 500 students tonight for our annual Homecoming Dance.  Spirit Week concluded today with the Class of 2017 claiming victory!  We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving holiday.  
Perfect MCAS Scores:
On Tuesday, November 8th, Superintendent Dr. Azar and the School Committee recognized students from all 5 schools who scored perfect on the 2016 MCAS tests.  Congratulations to Emily Greenberg, Emily Reid (2), Lindsey Silvia, and Megan Kelley on scoring a 280 on their MCAS test.  #DRPride

In the Classroom:
Foundations of Biology II students made models of viruses with nuts bolts and wires.  They explored the structure and characteristics of viruses.

Portuguese 1 Activity: What a wonderful activity! Portuguese 1 students were engaged learning numbers and colors by counting m & m's and making a graph.
