Update 7/13: Summer Learning Resources

Hello Danvers School Community, 

 

We are very pleased with the response to our DPS Family Return to School Survey over the past few days.  We’ve had close to 2,000 responses to the survey and look forward to many more through this week.  Please check your email for the link, and remember that the survey closes on Friday, July 17, 2020.

Danvers Public Schools is committed to providing our students with quality educational materials that will enrich their learning throughout the summer. The summer learning resources you will find on our website are a culmination of the collaboration between our teachers and administrators. Our learning resources are divided by levels –  elementary, middle and high school students.

Our focus for this summer is on summer reading. Reading just twenty minutes a day is our goal for all students. At the forefront of our learning resources at each level is information about our summer reading programs. We also include resources for the core academic areas, social justice and social emotional learning.  This year we added social justice resources as we believe it is  important for us to support our community as we face social justice issues together.   To that end, we have listed curated websites and book recommendations for our students, families, and educators.

In closing, please utilize our website for summer reading lists, optional summer learning resources, and social justice resources. We would also like to remind you at this time to complete the 2020 census if you have not already. If you have any questions about any of these resources, please feel free to reach out to dpscurriculum@danvers.org.

 

Thank you,

A Message from Principal John Obremski

Hello Highlands Community,

 

I am excited for my first year as Principal of Highlands School and I am grateful for the warm welcome I have received from the Danvers Community.

Danvers, the Danvers Public Schools, and Highlands have a history as a dynamic and welcoming place and I am happy to be a part of it. The town takes great pride in their facilities, programming, and learning.

The Highlands faculty and staff have created a warm, welcoming environment, where every child has the opportunity to learn, thrive, and be successful. Along with a dedicated faculty and staff, there is an active Parent Organization that facilitates additional programming and family fun events through fundraising.

I look forward to meeting everyone and working with all of you towards the continued success and improvement of the children of Highlands.

I am happy to be a Highland Hound!!!!

 

Sincerely,

John Obremski

Principal
