Player of the Year

It was another memorable season for Dighton-Rehoboth's Erin Kelley.

The Falcon senior and three-year player played forward and midfielder in 2015.

Kelley netted an area-high and team-leading 20 goals. She also finished with 24 points.

In two seasons, Kelley has scored 38 goals and assisted on 15 others. She was selected as a South Coast Conference All-star and had many winning goals during the season. She led D-R to an 11-4-1 regular season and a home game in the state tournament against Attleboro.

Kelley, who played soccer her freshman year and currently plays basketball in the winter, is a two-time winner of Field Hockey Player of the Year for the Taunton Daily Gazette. She is on the National Honor Society and plans to major in accounting when she enters college.

Parent Presentation: On Wednesday, February 3rd at 6:30pm in the Auditorium, there will be a brief presentation on the 2016-2017 Program of Studies Course Offerings for any parents  or guardians interested in learning about courses offered at DRRHS. During this presentation, we will explain the course offerings for next year, the teacher recommendation process, and the timeline for students selecting electives using the X2 Parent Portal. We will also provide insight on the teacher recommendation override procedure. This presentation is intended to provide a general overview of the scheduling process, not so much to answer any individual questions related to a student's scheduling needs since these questions are best answered by the student's teacher and guidance counselor. We look forward to seeing you there!
We wanted to make you aware that the 2016-2017 Program of Studies is now available online. Students and parents can access the Program of Studies by visiting the school website, selecting the Guidance tab, and then the sub tab entitled "Program of Studies."  The draft Program of Studies is attached for your convenience. On Monday 1/25 in a student's Green Day Period 1 class, students will receive a grade-level checklist which lists all of the course selections.
The timetable for course scheduling is as follows:
  • 1/25-2/11- Students should discuss course offerings for next year with their teachers and guidance counselors in school. Parents are encouraged to review the Program of Studies with their child and ask their child’s teachers or guidance counselors any questions. Teachers will begin entering recommendations for students into the X2 Gradebook. Our goal is to have all teacher recommendations in Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, English, and Foreign Language completed by Thursday, February 11th. Students and parents will be able to officially view teacher recommendations on X2 on Monday, February 22nd.
  • 2/22-2/26-After February vacation, all students will sign up for any other classes, including electives and other requirements, online through the X2 Portal. Directions are enclosed  on the grade-level checklists. Guidance counselors will support students through this process.
  • Course Selection Checklists by Grade Level:
If you have any question about your child’s schedule for the 2016-2017 school year, please contact your child’s teacher and/or guidance counselor who can best assist you.

At this time you should now be able to access your child's report card on the X2 Student/Parent Portal. This year you should be able to see the report card as a pdf file when you log-in under published links at the center of the page.
 
If not- please follow these directions:

kylie 1000.jpg
Coach Pacheco on Kylie’s accomplishment: “I couldn't be prouder of the milestone that Kylie reached on 1/19/16 at Bourne High School in 49-52 loss. She became only the third girl to attain this impressive accomplishment in the school's history. She has proven over the past four years to be an outstanding player, teammate, and leader for this program. She has helped to build a team over that past four years that was 1-19 at one point, into a team that is now just 1 win away from qualifying for the state tournament. I have the privilege of coaching all three 1,000 point scorers (Kelli Rupert Class of 2001, Mary Nwachukwu Class of 2009) and Kylie's march to 1,000 has been the most impressive of the three. She is a great kid who really deserved this accomplishment.”  
  • Boys Basketball: The DR boys struggled at Apponequet on Tuesday night losing by a score of 69-54.  They resume action this Friday against Greater New  Bedford Voke and Sunday at 12 noon against Somerset High School. Freshman @12 JV @1:30 and Varsity at 3:30

Points were scored by Megan Alves in the 50 freestyle and by the 200 medley relay team with Megan Alves, Kaitlyn O'Connor, Madison Correira, and Sara Enos swimming. Elizabeth Cronan, Kim Reilly, Emma Wheeler, and Caroline DeCoste were narrowly edged out of point scoring in the 200 freestyle relay.
