Earth Day in Preschool 3

Preschool-3 virtual students began honing their consciousness of safe-guarding our Earth early in February. We had many conversations about the need for clean water. The students practiced virtually removing debris from lakes while reinforcing letter sounds. In the photos you will notice that Sarah, Steven, and Bryan take turns “removing” litter from a pond and putting the debris in the canoe corresponding to the sound of the object. 

¡Salud es Vida!

Under the premise that health is life, our fourth and fifth graders are exploring what makes us healthy inside out, through perspectives of the Spanish-speaking world and our own.

Science in the Fifth Grade

As campus transitions from winter to spring, the 5th grade has been soaking up all the sunshine during Science class. The students have sparked imaginative discussions in class about our cosmic neighbors in the solar system. Scientists are currently discovering new information about other planets, which is inspiring the students to appreciate all that Earth has to offer.

Social Media, Extremism, and Our Youth: A Conversation with Parents

by Andrew Marantz

Monday, May 10, 7-8:30 PM

A Zoom Parent Ed. Evening Event

Andrew Marantz traces how the unthinkable becomes reality: how alienated young people are easy prey, led down the rabbit hole of online radicalization; and how fringe ideas spread from festering in anonymous corners of the web, to being broadcast on cable TV.

What can we do to keep away “the gate crashers”—the white supremacists, conspiracists, and nihilist trolls who expertly use the internet to advance their poisonous agenda?

The health, well being, and safety of our D-E Families and Faculty/Staff are paramount. All in the D-E community can refer to www.d-e.org/covid for prior communications sent via Email related to COVID-19, and the School’s response; helpful resources links; and “Do’s & One Don’t” Health Tips to prevent the spread of illness.

To all in our D-E community: stay healthy and safe!
