Tianjin, China Visit

On Wednesday, January 31, Dwyer had the honor of hosting approximately 100 students and 20 chaperones from Tianjin. Our talented students performed for our visitors and we got to enjoy the cultural performances by their students as well. Our Tianjin friends toured our campus, experienced the cafeteria, and participated in a gift-giving exchange with many of our 6th Graders. Please see below for some highlights. It was truly a day to remember!

Author's Day

On Tuesday, January 30, Author Rob Crisell spoke to all the 6th Grade Core classes. He excited students about what it takes in school to be a fantastic writer and shared a ton of cool information about his book, The Zoo of Impossible Animals. Do you know what a cryptid is? Ask your student and they can share all the interesting cryptids they saw and learned about from Mr. Crisell. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of his book, please fill out the form below. $10 cash will be due to the office on Monday to reserve a signed copy for your child. Thank you, Mr. Crisell for igniting passion in our students!
