DCIS Foundation Scholarship Orientations

Every student who wants to apply for a DCIS Foundation scholarship for travel through this fall MUST attend one of the application preparation orientation meetings THIS WEEK and participate in interviews, which will take place in early February. For the first time, one of the meetings is being held in the evening to make it easier for parents to attend as well (parent attendance isn’t required but is welcome). There will be another orientation meeting in the fall for students traveling later this year who wish to apply for a scholarship then.

The remaining application preparation orientation dates this week for DCIS students are:
  • Thursday, Jan. 18, 12:30-1:30 pm, DCIS Community Room (103)
  • Thursday, Jan. 18, 5:30-6:30 pm, MUN Room*

Tuesday, Nov. 14, 6-7:30 pm, DCIS Cafeteria
Please join us for a conversation with Principal Theresa McCorquodale about DCIS’ most recent School Performance Framework (SPF) scores and what they mean. The SPF is like a report card for schools, telling us important information about how much our students have improved their scores on state tests from year to year, and how satisfied our students and families are with our school. We can then use this information to make any necessary changes in the classroom and to bring in additional supports where needed. The evening will also include PTSA elections and updates. Dinner, child care and simultaneous interpretation provided. So we can make sure we provide enough food for dinner, please take a moment to RSVP here.
