John Dewey High Schools First Annual Spirit Day

Our first spirit day was a success! A full day of fun, food, music and a little learning. Our students and staff enjoyed games, bouncy houses, a dunk tank, sip and paint, a life size operation game and so much more. Students and staff were out in full force displaying their academy colors for all to see. You could dunk your teacher or maybe throw a pie in their face. Today was about community and family our John Dewey High School family! Here are some pictures from today’s Spirit Day. 

The J.D.H.S. Theater Department did it again, with their amazing performance of “Legally Blonde”

You would have thought you were on Broadway with our production. The cast had a ball belting out songs from the popular musical.  Sets and costumes transformed our students and school. The audience laughed and sang along and enjoyed every minute of the show. Our students spent afternoons, evenings and even Saturdays, making sure their performance was top notch. Please enjoy the gallery of pictures.

Important Message for Parents

Dear Parents,

Please take the time to read the information below, published by the National Association of School Psychologists, if you feel your child has watched, or is possibly interested in watching, the popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, season 1 or the upcoming season 2 released May 18, 2018.

Although there are many controversial television shows, this particular one is prominent in the eyes of educators and psychologists because of its dramatic portrayal of sexual assault and suicide among teenagers.  Season 2 will explore more of the same issues and possibly school shootings as well.  It is important to note that the show is rated TV-MA, for mature audiences and parent guidance for children under 17.

There is great information below, with supporting links and even a viewer’s guide, if you choose to watch the program with your child. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s Guidance Counselor.

Sincerely,

John Dewey High School Guidance Department
