What is a Girls who code club?
Girls Who code Clubs are meant for girls to join our sisterhood of supportive peers and role models, and use Computer Science to change the world. When you join a club, you will be able to learn from fun and simple online coding tutorials, build community through interactive activities, and learn about inspiring role models. You then work in teams to design and build a Girls Who Code Project that solves real world problems you care about through code!
We had our 3rd Annual K-4 Family Math Night and we were very excited to see the huge turnout. The DCS gymnasium was filled with games and activities all centered around building mathematical understanding, communication and the connection between home and school.
There was an assortment of activities and games to keep families engaged and having fun. Some of the favorites were bowling at our “DCS Bowling Alley”, walking our life-size hundred chart, making paper snowflakes, building paper structures and adding them to our model community and taking a spin down our Story Problem Race Track. We also had a huge success with our very first Math Escape Room. Families worked together to solve the math puzzle to “escape” in less than 30 minutes. I can confidently report that all families did escape.
We would like to thank the families and students that made this event such a success. We would also like to thank the teachers of DCS for volunteering their time and energy, without them this event would be impossible!! Thank you to Hannaford of Northwood for the donation of the balloons. We would also like to extend an extra special thank you to FOCUS, for donating the life-size stations such as the bowling alley and number chart. Lastly, thank you to Sarah Nickel for coordinating the Pizza To-Go 8th grade fundraiser.
We already have some new and fun ideas for next year…we look forward to this event all year!!!
TIGER (Theatre Integrating Guidance, Education and Responsibility) joined us Thursday for 2 wonderful shows. The first show, A Brand New Day was presented to our K-4 students, the second show, Bystander; A Portrait in Apathy was presented to our 5th-8th graders. Students and staff enjoyed their acting, singing, and dancing…and learned something too.
*Ask your child in K-4 about their acronym:
T – Take care of you
I – Imagine
G – Grow your confidence
E – EMPATHY
R – Respect yourself and others
*Ask your 5th-8th grader about being a bystander.
Join us Thursday, January 30th from 6:30pm – 8pm for a parents only TIGER workshop. Please be sure to RSVP if you are planning on attending. See click the link above for more information.
Over the past month our 8th grade advisories have been exploring high school classes and future career paths. Before the December vacation all of the 8th graders had a tour of Concord High School which was led by many of our former students. During our magnet (advisory) times we have been discussing what classes students may want to take to fit with potential future paths. The cumulation of this unit will be during the school day on Monday, January 27 where we have professionals in various fields come to DCS to meet with our 8th graders.
Like all of the 8th grade magnets Outreach enjoys spending time with our little buddies in Mrs. McManus’s kindergarten class! Outreach members meet with our little buddies to help them with reading, playing together, and for celebrations. We love our community school!
