DCIS is considering a trip to Cuba in the future and would like to gauge support. If there are high-schoolers or faculty who would be interested, please email Mateo Pardo at email@example.com, Geri Badler at firstname.lastname@example.org, and Jef Brown at JEFFREY_BROWN@dpsk12.org.
For his Passages this spring, 11th grader Jesus Paredes worked with our 7th grade science teacher, Frank Pomponio, to coordinate a science fair for our 7th graders. Students created and ran an experiment, running each part of the scientific design process on their own. Older students from other classes visited the fair to score and give feedback on the final products.
11th grader Jovonna Ortega created an experiential passage about Passages class at DCIS. Here is a description of her project:
“Humans of Passages is a way for me to inform the future juniors of DCIS about what passages is and what they should expect from a class that is completely student led with some teacher support. I want them to be more prepared for this class because when I was a incoming junior had no idea what I was doing and what was going on so I was a bit scared of what was coming next and I didn’t want the next passages students to feel that way and this is my way to help get rid of all of the negative feelings.”
