Greetings Designers and Design Families!
This week, we had our annual DVD Club Fair! On Thursday afternoon, we had over 20 DVD student-run clubs host booths at our club fair to get Design students excited about joining. This year our list of clubs included new clubs like Entrepreneur Club, Community and Crafts Club, Astronomy Club, and more!
Congratulations to our Design Ticket winners this week: Julian Saez, Elias Suazo, Hailey Perez and Anthony Orejel. This year, we started a new way of recognizing students by handing out Design Tickets! Anyone can get a design ticket by “getting caught” for being a great student: actions like leading by example, showing kindness, using appropriate language, or being helpful. At the end of each week, a few Design Ticket winners will be randomly selected to have their names read over the intercom and win a prize! We appreciate all of our students who show up every day as mindful, respectful, and responsible.
We also wanted to recognize a student for superior academic achievement: 12th grader Rufus Lapp. Rufus was named a Commended Student by the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program. Commended Students like Rufus placed among the top 50,000 students who took the 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
