DSU is getting back as close as we can to old-school DSU where kids had many options for how to spend their free time 🀩 This year, we've been able to offer students painting, rainbow looming, DSU merch designing, bracelet making, and more! Giving our young people the chance to share their creativity is so special not only for them, but for staff and peers alike!
What free-time projects would your kids like to see more of at DSU? 🎨

Together at DSU, we have been able to share a problem- and project-based learning series with students called the Habits of Mind 🧠
Practicing the Habits of Mind gives us the opportunity to broaden our thinking and build our tool kit to appropriately handle everyday situations. This week's Habit of Mind is PERSISTING, or following through with an action even when it is challenging. Our young people have been brave enough to share difficult moments that they persisted through, and have even acknowledged and praised their peers for persisting during school or DSU programming.
Stay tuned for an #overheardatdsu to hear more about what our students have shared through the persistence unit ⭐️

Gonna need a one handed catch after this trick shot! If players can catch the Nuke'em ball with one hand, they can bring a teammate back in... even though it's pretty cute to hear friends cheer for their team on the sidelines while they're out πŸ₯°
