Attention 7th and 8th grade students:

Are you ready for a challenge? Do you like to help your fellow students? Then Peer Tutoring is for you! We are recruiting good, patient students who will serve as tutors to help other fellow Dana students with their academic school work in an online format. This is a great way to meet new people, give back to the Dana community, and gain volunteer experience as well! If you can spare one hour each week and would like to consider being a peer tutor, then be sure to join the peer tutor google classroom using code d3jdmj3, and complete the survey. If you have any questions, contact Ms. Ary.

 

Music Elective Club is coming Thursday at lunch!  All music students who did not get music in their schedule due to the loss of Zero period are welcome to join this club.  We will also accept other musicians from band, orchestra, or even guitar students.  During lunch, students will have the opportunity to play the same music their ensemble is playing.  For all the important details, go to Mr. Grable's website.  Please go to Mr. Grable's website before Thursday so you can be ready to log on.  We hope to see you then!
