December 2022 - John Dewey High School
A Message from Your Principal
Dear Dewey Family,
November was a month in which we gathered to celebrate with family and friends in the spirit of thankfulness. Our Thanksgiving feast was a great success.
I would like to give a big congratulations to our Dewey Robotics FTC team 9384 and FTC Team 8087 for advancing to the super qualifiers!
Also, our Kickoff of Winter Sports had us welcoming rival teams. Be sure to check out the calendar of dates and come join the Cheerleaders! Be sure to scroll down and view the pictures from the event: It was a much-needed time of celebration for our Dewey community. To all of those who worked to make this event happen; from the food to the music, to the student and staff volunteers, I’m thankful to each of you. Your collective efforts made this event one to remember!
This month brings us even more to look forward to: our Pajama Day & Winter Wonderland event, the next set of Senior Spirit Day themes, our canned food drive and much more!
November’s 212-degree challenge was to “Find Time. Give Time,” where we worked to self-reflect and inspire those around us. I was overjoyed to see and read about all of the great ways in which you manifested this challenge. This December, I challenge you to be open to the opportunities our discomfort will afford us. This means to RISK, ATTEMPT, FAIL & SUCCEED as you step out of your comfort zone once more each week and create 50 additional opportunities for excitement, challenge and possibility each year. Be sure to look out for the QR codes around the building and in your classes to share and celebrate just how you meet this month’s challenge.
I’m looking forward to hearing about how you all "Dew" in risking and succeeding with this month’s challenge!.
