Cheer on the Girls Wed., May 15, at 3:45 at Kennedy High School.
Eighth-grader Corie Wing sliced through two defenders and then laser-beamed the poor soccer ball into the goal to give DCIS’ middle-school girls a 1-0 lead on their way to a 2-0 victory Wed. over Merrill Middle School in the semi-final game at DPS all-city stadium Monday. (Sophie Clark added the second goal later.) Overall, DCIS dominated Merrill in all facets of the game.
Now the girls, brilliantly coached by teacher Gerardo Munoz and assistant coach Dobberstein, take on Morey Middle School at the soccer field at Kennedy High School Wed at 3:45.
This marks the second year in a row that DCIS girls have made the finals, after winning the DPS championship in 2011.
Please come out Wed. See you there.
The DCIS Phoenix Girls Middle School Soccer team advanced to the Semifinals of the 2013 city tournament with a thrilling 1-0 win over Hamilton On May 9.
The Phoenix Girls, who had lost 2-1 to Hamilton on April 26, brought energy and intensity to the match. Phoenix dominated in midfield play, and defended with composure and energy. The match was decided by a 30-yard goal by 7th grade centerback Camryn Miller with just four minutes remaining in regulation.
The girls will face Merrill in the semifinal at All-City Field on Monday, May 13. Kickoff is at 3:45. ACF is located at 1700 E. Louisiana Ave, on the South High School campus. Come cheer on the Phoenix Girls!
Calling on DCIS parents…
Would you like to help students get engaged with current events? Here’s a chance for you to make a difference by giving time to judge for the 8th Grade Global Issues Summit at Denver Center for International Studies! 120 students will be participating in this mock United Nations style event that will be held over two days May 9 and May 10, 2013. Students have been preparing all year to represent their selected country using parliamentary procedure to debate and build resolution consensus. The topics for the summit include major world issues and were selected by the students. Each student will play the role of an ambassador from a country and debate the topic from that country’s point of view.
The Topics on the Docket in Two Councils:
1. Civil War and Conflict Resolution in Africa
2. Global Weapons and Arms Treaties
3. Nuclear Non-Proliferation
4. Framework for Climate Change and Carbon Emissions
5. Sustainable and Cost Efficient Production of Energy
6. Free Trade and Legal Issues of Economic Embargos
7. Gender Equality and Education
8. Improving Maternal Health
9. Improving Life Expectancy in Least Developed Countries
10. Social Development of Children in a Technology Driven World
11. The rise of Poverty in Western Europe and the Euro Bank Crisis
We need adult judges to observe the debate, score the students, and provide feedback on how the students can improve and what they did best. You would need to commit to being present ideally from 7:30-2:30. However, if you can only be there part of the time or just one of the days, I am still interested in your service.
No previous experience is needed. I will offer a one-hour training on Wednesday, May 8 afterschool for those interested in training. You all are very well qualified already, especially if you keep up on world events and like to encourage young people. You’ll likely be amazed at the level of debate the students demonstrate and how professional they look in their western style business attire.
We are looking forward to this summit at our school and expect it to be a successful one, with lively debate and engaged students. Would you consider adding your time and talents to making our summit one of the highest quality? If so, please reply to this email with your interest level. I look forward to hearing back from you.
