Are you a parent or student interested in DCIS for the 2017-18 school year? Come join us for an Open House. We have a few coming up from 7:30-9:00am on 11/1 and from 6-7:30pm on 11/15 and 1/18. No registration required.
Check out this page for more information.
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.
Picture retakes are scheduled for Tuesday, 11/1. Dress your best!
NOTE THE DATE CHANGE:
Please join us on Tuesday, 11/8, from 6-7pm in the auditorium to learn about our school’s results in state testing from this past spring.
