The Weekly Jr. Oiler

April 7, 2017

The House of Scholars and Champions

Just this week, we have had so many successes here at Dwyer! Many of our students participated in the Talent Show put on by ASB on Tuesday evening. There were lots of great acts showcasing the many talents of our students. On that same day, our 8th grade boy's soccer team took the league championship game with a score of 2-1 over Tewinkle. On Wednesday, the girl's 6th and 7th grade soccer team also won the championship game against Ensign, with a score of 1-0. Way to go, Jr. Oiler athletes! Thursday night rounded out our week full of activities with the choirs performing to a packed house in the Sowers Mall. I am so proud of all we accomplish here at Dwyer!

Scholars are also gearing up for our annual SBAC testing with lots of rigorous learning in classrooms. In addition, students are taking practice tests to better familiarize themselves with the online interface and levels of questioning. Testing begins the day after Spring Break, so please make sure your child is well rested and has a hearty breakfast.

8th Grade Promotion Reminders

Hello Eighth Grade Parents! We’re gearing up for the end of the year and our eighth grade promotion ceremony. All eighth graders received an important packet of information earlier this week. Please ask your student about it if you have not yet seen it. Promotion forms and fees are due this Monday, April 10 so we have time to put in orders and get everything together for a great day. Contact Promotion Chair Melanie Hahn at 714-323-3449 or if you have any questions.

17th Street Closure on April 12th

On Wednesday, April 12, Huntington Beach High School will be hosting Every 15 Minutes, a program to teach teens about the effects of drinking and driving. A large portion of 17th Street north of Dwyer will be closed during drop-off time. Please make arrangements to avoid the use of 17th Street that morning.

There may also be sirens, law enforcement, and other medical vehicles driving on 17th Street in the middle of the day to re-enact a crash scene. Please know that this is a mock demonstration and not an actual emergency occurring near our campus.
