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.
