Distrist 16 Honors StudentsEvery year teachers in the district have the opportunity to discuss which students they believe have grown the most- this can be academic, social, or emotional growth. It is always a pleasure for teachers to come together to discuss the gains made by the various students in their care and each year we are pleased to be able to offer one of the many deserving students the award for having shown the most growth. This year once again we honored those students at an event sponsored by District 16. Congratulations to all those students honored this year.
Starting in April DLMS Students will be video recording our morning announcements and posting them to our school page. This is a great way for parents and others to keep up with the many events and activities that happen here. We have a great group of students in the Audio-Visual club and they are really looking forward to this new venture.
Students at all grade levels will be competing in sports events or cheering for competitors tomorrow morning. Students are reminded to dress appropriately for their events. If they will be on the ice tomorrow they need skates, helmets, and gloves or mitts.
For those who are cheering on their classmates- remember to dress for being outside.
Science Fair projects are the next "big" thing. Following March Break each Science teacher will be asking their students to develop a science project for school competition on March 19. 2010. The winner of the school based competitions will go on to the District Science Fair on March 25.
Remember to start planning early for the best possible project.
Ms. Vye will be starting Volleyball tryouts following March Break. She is looking for some volunteers to help with coaching and organizing the team this year. If you are willing to volunteer some time helping Dr. Losier to run a Varsity and Junior Varsity program please call the school at 778-6077 and ask for Ms.Vye or leave a message.
Beginning next week Mr. McCarthy will be working with a select group of grade six students on Language Arts skills. One group will work on reading skills that increase comprehension,such as visualizing, making connections, and questioning as you read. The other group will work on writing skills using the district wide 6+1 Writing Traits model. The project will last for twenty school days.
