DSU is National Honor Society's preferred volunteer partnership, and boy, are the feelings mutual!! 🥰 Every day, DSU is lucky enough to have 1-3 NHS tutors volunteer in our classrooms, in the blender, and in outdoor games. The kids especially enjoy their company, not only because our NHS tutors are all totally awesome, but because they are more like peers who might share with a student, "I had this teacher!" or "I remember learning multiplication this way." They bring such a level of joy to learning and we could not be more grateful to our NHS tutors ❤️ ...

Comin' at you with another Habit of Mind! This week and next, our young people will be diving into what it means to think flexibly. Sometimes the vote for a game isn't in our favor, or we forget to announce a Mask Hero, or forget to bring our green folder home. In the moment, these instances can feel like the end of the world. "Why didn't anyone pick my game?" or "I worked so hard all day to be the Mask Hero," or "I'll never get my homework done." These are all situations that our kids are completely capable of handling with the right tools. Having a flexible state of mind, will encourage our kids to try that new game, or show great mask behavior the following day, or ask a friend from class if our staff can photocopy the worksheet that was sent home.
DSU is a supportive environment that allows young people the independence to work through everyday obstacles, while still guiding and assuring them that together, we will work this out.
What are some other moments you could encourage your child to think flexibly during?

We can't thank our clean up crew enough for helping us clear fallen branches from last week's storm. 🍃 Our young people took such initiative and shared among the group, "Let's just move the branches together so we can make room to play snack-time Sharks & Minnows." Each kid picked up 30 sticks and the job was done in less than 10 minutes!! 💪🏽
Thank you to the Town of Duxbury for doing the heaviest lifting (literally) and allowing our kids to keep playing in the backyard! We are so grateful of this space. ❤️
