Fishing with a Cop

"Fishing with a Cop" is a yearly event in which Dwyer students are invited to participate. Typically students in this group have never been fishing before. They have the opportunity to learn about fish and game from volunteers and rotate through stations to practice different aspects of fishing. They even learn to bait their own hooks.


Students then get to try their hand at fishing along side a Huntington Beach Police Officer. The night prior to the event, the lake at Carr Park is stocked with 500 pounds of catfish. This year, we did not get many bites but the students sure had fun!

Parent Conferences

Parent conferences are coming up the week of October 22. These conferences are for parents to meet with teachers where they have concern about their child's progress. You do not have to meet with all of your child's teachers or even any if there are no questions or concerns.


Links to each teacher's calendar will be opened on Tuesday, October 16. Please find the calendars here.
