“We are all part of the Puzzle”

A place-Based Service Learning Lesson

Tim Kelly’s “The Puzzle Art Installation & Collaborative Project” inspired this art project.
(Go to for more information.)
The Puzzle Project consists of thousands of 24″ x 24″ artistic puzzle pieces created in more than 20 states and 10 countries.

The individual puzzle pieces (pictured below) were created by Ms. Calnek’s first semester Studio Art classes and combined to make a mural 5’ x 24’ illustrating the students experience at Danvers High School as a “place” of meaning and influence in their lives. School-wide reflection on Danvers High School as the “place” was broadened to include all students, faculty and staff who have roots in Danvers and have attended the high school.

If you are alumni of Danvers High School we invite you to participate in communicating your remembrance of being a student here.
Please write:

  • a few sentences to a short paragraph about your experience at Danvers High School
  • Your first and last name
  • Your year of graduation

Email your responses to:

Ms. Calnek plans on sending the puzzle pieces created by our very own Danvers High School students to Tim Kelly
for him to add to the travelling exhibition.
Our puzzle pieces will be a part of this global installation.

The mural is currently on view on the second floor Guidance wing hallway of Danvers High School

Rainbow Flag raised in the Town of Danvers

In 2014 President Obama called on Americans to eliminate prejudice “everywhere it exists,” and declared June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride month.
June month was selected in honor of the June 1969 riots that took place at Stonewall Inn, which is now widely recognized as the catalyst for the LGBT movement for civil rights in the United States.
The Town of Danvers had a flag raising ceremony in observance of this and during the month of June the rainbow flags will be flown at both Town Hall and the Library.

Pictured below were 3 representative from Danvers High School who attended the short ceremony!

May ParentCARES theme – Accessing behavioral health support for teens

May is National Mental Health Month, so it is fitting that the theme for this month’s ParentsCARES campaign is about accessing behavioral health supports for teens. Being a teenager can be stressful. It is a time when minds and bodies are growing. Teens are meeting new people, have new demands on their time, and are exposed to new things. Sometimes these situations can be overwhelming and they need support from a professional.
Luckily, 92% of Danvers parents report knowing where to seek professional help if their child is anxious, depressed, or using substances. There are many resources in and out of school, and talking to your child’s pediatrician about any concerns is always a good start.

February ParentCARES theme – Dinner Dates with your children!

DanversCARES has released the ParentsCARES theme for the month of February

This month, we’d like to remind parents about the value of spending quality time with their children. Research shows that taking time to have a family meal together at least twice per week is one way to build positive family foundations.

Over 90% of Danvers parents have family dinners with their teens. We’d like to celebrate fact through ParentsCARES.  For more information visit the DanversCARES webiste and watch for the monthly column in the Danvers Herald this week written by our partners from Lahey Behavioral Health.
