Student Science Researchers
Some of our students spent several weeks at Barry University this summer in the Summer Science Research Program designed to expose students to life science research and the college environment. Jaylin Martir, Kayla Efrece, Damian Menendez-Kane and Cynthia Orelien participated in the fully-funded program which accepts about 20 students from Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
May we introduce...Chris Scofield
Mr. Scofield brings 16 years of experience teaching math to DCS as well as his huge collection of fun, and unusual neckties! His goal is to eventually collect 180 ties so he can wear a different one each school day.
He earned his Bachelor's degree in Math from Florida Southern College, and a Master's in Education from Capella University. He is married to a college math professor and has a child in the 4th grade.
Mr. Scofield is known for his zany sense of humor, love of comic books, tendency to use the word "wombat" whenever possible, and his obsession with Superman.
Volunteers are needed for the middle school dance on Friday, September 12th. Parents are needed to decorate from 5:00 to 6:00, chaperone and assist at the dance from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, and clean up until about 9:30. If you can assist with any of those shifts, it would be greatly appreciated.
