Respect for All Week and Blood Drive

What a busy week it has been here in our school! As usual J.D.H.S. students and staff stepped up to the plate and rocked it. Pledges, posters and being a friend and helping others was the theme this week

We let the world know that at our school we respect all not just this week but every day. Students and staff wore different colors for each day to show support, compassion and love. We also had our semiannual blood drive. Our own National Honor Society helped to make this event amazing. Here at our school we strive to give back to our community. We would like to thank all who participated in these events. Here are some pictures enjoy!

John Dewey H.S. Campaign for” Kindness Week” and “No one Eats Alone Day”

John Dewey students and staff are always thinking out of the box and always trying to improve their community and their school. So instead of having just one day to let students know that we are a community, and here for each other we made that one day go for five days! No one eats alone is a city wide event. Students are encouraged to come out of their comfort zone and sit with someone at lunch who is alone. Here at our school we encouraged our students all week long. Monday we asked everyone to wave to someone they did not know. Tuesday we asked them to say hello. Wednesday was smile at ten people. Thursday ask someone you don’t know how their day is going? Friday was no one eats alone. Ms. Horn along with two of her classes made posters and sat in the lunchroom for all the lunch periods and made sure no one ate alone. Here are some pictures from the week.
