Travel Day: Passport to Travel

The DCIS Travel Committee hosted a Travel Day to promote student travel and share information about all of the wonderful travel opportunities out there for our students. Students presented about the various travel and exchange programs that they’ve participated in. Students were given ‘passports’ that they had stamped by the individual presenters at the fair. It was an informative, fun, and engaging event!

Former Denver Nuggets Player Visits DCIS

IMG_3768On Friday, 11/4, former Denver Nuggets player Ervin Johnson came to talk to our middle schoolers at DCIS during community meeting. “Believe in yourself…you’ve got to have confidence,” he told the audience. Johnson spoke about his background and values, and gave our students valuable advice about topics including peer pressure, making good choices, developing good habits, and treating each other with respect. Students were able to ask Ervin Johnson questions, and learned how tall he is, his shoe size, and his basketball stats.

The one down side: Mr. Johnson loves football, but he’s not a Broncos fan.

Student-Led Conferences Nov. 2-3

Student-led conferences are scheduled for November 2 and 3, from 3:30 to 7:30. If your student’s adviser has not already scheduled a time for you to meet, he or she should be reaching out in the next few days. During the conference, parents meet with their student and the student’s advisement teacher, and students tell their parents how they’re doing in each class, their accomplishments, where they could improve and how they plan to do so. Advisers comment as appropriate. Parents can ask questions of their student and, as needed, the student’s adviser.
