Many new opportunities for students 

The daily schedules for those of us who work and learn at DC Charter continue to be filled with new adventures and learning opportunities.  In addition to all the new things we started last year that we have continued this year, here is just a small sample of some of the additional opportunities available for our students this year that weren’t on the agenda last year:

--Art Express: retired teachers Marilyn and Joanie are providing art education several times throughout the year for students in Grades K-5.

--Music education: all elementary students have music instruction 30 minutes daily and we have several high school students enrolled in choir.

--Other music opportunities: we’ve hosted two renown performance groups this year.  Through a partnership with the Umpqua Symphony Association, all students K-12 were guests of the Rhythm Future Quartet, whose performance genre is gypsy jazz.

Through a partnership with Roseburg Community Concerts, our 6-12 students got to travel to 7-Feathers Convention Center to hear The Kat Trio perform a selection of classical music from around the world.

--Nutrition Education: through a partnership with Mercy Foundation, a nutritionist is visiting elementary classrooms regularly to talk about making healthy food choices.

--Robotics: the robotics materials are no longer stored in the closest!  Instead, all middle school students will have the opportunity to engage in a robotics unit as part of the Technology Exploratory class.

--National FFA Convention: our high school forestry team, which won the state competition, is representing Oregon in Indianapolis this week.

DC Charter is fortunate to have so many great students, a school that is filled with teachers who care about them, and parents and community members who support our efforts in providing such a wonderful variety of opportunities to meet their varying needs and interests.

Thank you for continuing to partner with and support our school!  And, be sure to follow us on Facebook to see regular posts on all the activities mentioned here as well as the many other activities going on around campus!

Respectfully,

Dr. Mark Angle, Superintendent
