National Make a Difference Day
We know that our Angels, families, and staff are constantly doing things big and small that make our community and world great. In these trying times, we’d like to help share these stories. Saturday, Oct. 24 is National Make a Difference Day and we encourage you to get involved but also we want to hear about what you’ve done to make a difference by filling out this online form: https://forms.gle/WHm8vi6yunXVw8rW6.
The Off-Campus Concurrent Enrollment for Spring 2021 Interest Meeting will be held on October 26th at 11:15am at meet.google.com/sca-arcd-fux. Students must attend this meeting if they are interested in taking a course this spring semester at a local community/ four year college. This lunch time meeting will cover the who, what, when’s, and where’s of concurrent enrollment. This meeting is MANDATORY for any student that wants to take classes this Spring at a college campus. Please email Lindsey_Vesceri@dpsk12.org if you are unable to attend this meeting.
We will still be hosting the SAT on Tuesday, Oct. 27th for 12th-grade students and the PSAT on Thursday, Oct. 29th for 11th-grade students. Students must already be registered in order to sit for the exam. No instruction will be given on these days in order to provide this opportunity to our students. These are optional tests. If your student has signed up using recent surveys, next week we will send further information regarding your test time and room to report for test day. You can contact your counselor to check if you have signed up.
The testing schedule will be similar to our current school schedule where “Schedule A” students will complete a morning test session and “Schedule B” students will complete an afternoon test session. This schedule supports our cohort and current safety measures for students and proctors. Additional information regarding testing times, building entry, and room numbers will soon be sent to those who registered.
