DRX Awards

DRX Awards are back and students and staff gathered in the media center last period on Friday, February 8 to celebrate their relaunch. Seniors, Matt McNaughton, Chris Hoskins, and Connor Glynn opened up the ceremony, as they had played an integral role in recreating the awards that aim to recognize students who exemplify the school’s 5 core values: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Independence, and Excellence.

Matt addressed his peers saying, “The goal is to bring some positivity to the DR community.”

Overall, those in attendance would agree that it was a positive experience. The room was filled with cheers, smiles, and fist bumps (coined DRXplosions by Matt) as the following students were recognized for making DRRHS a better place:

Isaiah Farrar
Robert Azevedo
Melina Nutall
Mackenzie Morgenweck
Lauren Pimentel
Shea Herman
Abigail Cabral
Jairus Hardmon
Ainsley Cronin
Alexis Ponte
Tyler Kindberg
Matt McNaughton
Chris Hoskins
Connor Glynn

And, if you are curious as to what these awesome students did to receive an award, check out the new DRX bulletin board just outside the Guidance Department.

We look forward to many more opportunities each month to recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements of our students!

As we continue “National School Counseling Week.” Our message focuses on “what matters.”
Actor Matt Damon said recently: “I think what’s important for kids to know is your decisions matter. Your behavior matters. How you treat other people matters.” It might be as simple as holding the door open for someone, or as complex as writing a great story or inventing a new way of computing. No matter how big or how small, what you do matters.
In Oh, the Places You’ll Go, Dr. Seuss writes: “You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.”

Latin and French Clubbers! Please stop by Mrs. Loell's room to pick up a permission slip and sign up for slots in the van for Monday's shop and skate at Patriot Place. Final count is due Friday by 1:00 pm.

who surround you each day. Your village can help you become who you
want to be. Your village is your network.
