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!
This powerpoint outlines key information from our 2015-16 school data. Please review and reach out with questions.
On 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.
