DCS students brought the spirit this week! We had tons of students come with full on 60’s outfits and lots of undercover secret agents!
Unfortunately, we had some challenges with our float this year and the 5 foot dome came apart and caved in during the parade…BUT we were beyond impressed watching how our students jump to action to make sure it did not crumble completely. Students immediately grabbed each side and held on! They kept on smiling and waving to parents and friends who were in the crowd watching.
To us, that is the definition of family; that is what people do in a striving community. They come together without questioning and help each other to ensure success for all. They don’t look at how it’s going to benefit just themselves, they look at how it benefits the bigger picture, the bigger goal. If something doesn’t work out, we band together to find a solution! Our kids really demonstrated what the DCS community looks like.
We are so proud of our students because time and time again they show us, and everyone around them, what a TLC student sounds like, acts like, and looks like.
Thank you again,
Ms. T & Ms. Zaca
DCS Leadership Teachers
Monday (10/1): Gold and Garnet Day
See you in D4 (my classroom) at 6:45 AM Friday, September 7th!!
kill #1 – Working hard on Yourself
One of the hardest skills to learn as a student leader is to work hard on yourself. It’s impossible to lead others if you don’t lead yourself in the right direction. You need to constantly reflect and push yourself to be a good example to others.
Skill #2 – Effective Speaker and Communicator
An effective leader needs to have courage to public speak at school events. Good speaking skills allow leaders to communicate the Discovery vision/expectations with others, which is an essential part of being a leader. Having strong communication skills does not just mean speaking to others, but also listening to what others have to say by giving them an opportunity to express their ideas/thoughts.
Skill #3- Taking Pride in Discovery
All student leaders need have a common vision of what makes DCS the best school to be at. Leaders need to promote school spirit, lead by example and take initiative to reach out to all student body. They also need to be a smiling face, a helping hand and speak kindly to their peers, while encouraging participation in school events.
Below you will find a PDF file to print of the leadership contract form.
I will be choosing 15 student leaders for Trimester 1.
Meetings will not start until September 7th.
