Engineering A Prosthetic Arm!

The 8th graders were engineering a cardboard prosthetic arm The students had to use all of the same materials. Their innovative ideas had special tasks to perform. The students had to be able to drop the various objects 2 feet away into a can. Then the engineers had a contest to see which helping hand could pick up the most objects from 2 feet away. The following scientists engineered the Most Productive Helping Hand:

1st Place- Ofasu & Julian

2nd Place-Abby & Jada

3rd Place-Erin & Alexis

Congratulations! Job Well Done!

Uniform Reminders

The navy walking shorts can be worn until October 15th. Please remember that students are expected to be in uniform, including uniform hoodies and sweaters.

Also, while girls may wear nail polish, it should cover their natural nails and be a short length. Anything excessive is not allowed. Administration reserves the right to decide if it is considered excessive. Students are not permitted to wear make up. Please refer to the school handbook for any uniform questions.

Recognizing DP Staff!

Our staff works so hard to make your child's day positive, educational, and spiritual. I would like to start a form that, when a staff member goes out of their way, we can recognize them. This recognition is called the St. John Baptist de la Salle award. St. John Baptist de La Salle is a Saint that devoted his life to teaching. He trained other people to be teachers. John urged his teachers to treat their students with love and compassion, making time for them and being concerned for their spiritual well-being.

Your recognition can take the form of a private "Good Job" to that staff member or we may post it here in our school newsletter- that is up to you! Anyone at DP can be recognized- teachers, teacher assistants, staff and administration. Thank you for taking the time. This will be available all school year! Click on the form below.

Have a question? Email your child's teacher!

All teachers now have their proper emails- including our new teachers. Thank you for your patience!
