DenmanTV Episode 6
End Of The Year Letter
May 15, 2016
Dear Denman Community,
As we finish the 2015-2016 school year I would like to express how grateful I am to be a member of the Denman Community; thank you for always showing Denman Pride and reflecting on our work and practices! Denman has had another incredibly successful year:
Denman is excited to share that during the 2016-2017 school year we will continue building on the above celebrations and striving to add even more celebrations! We already have so much to inform our community about for next year:
In addition, next year we will also be welcoming a second Assistant Principal. Last night the Board Of Education approved Ms. Ann Lyon to be our new AP. Ms. Lyon has worked in the district for over 20 years and has been at Denman for the past three years! We are so excited for Ms. Lyon to take on her new role!
Thank you for an incredible year and an even better one next year,
Dear Denman Community,
We love kendamas, the popular toys with a ball, string and handle, which the kids use to do tricks. They encourage friendly nonviolent play, peer-to-peer teaching, and competition – and best of all, they don’t have screens!
However, kendama play in the hallways, classrooms, library and during PE class (when it is not the scheduled activity) has become distracting, disruptive and even unsafe. We have developed a policy for kendama use so our students can show Denman Pride at school by using kendamas safely and responsibly:
Again, we love and appreciate our students joy and skill in using these toys. This policy is to ensure that they are used safely and responsibly at school.
The SFUSD VAPA Summer Arts Program will take place June 8 to July 7 at two middle school campuses: Willie L. Brown, Jr., Middle School and Everett Middle School.
The classes offered will include:
Willie Brown, Jr. will offer beginning instrumental music, and instruments will be provided. Students with experience and those with their own instruments are welcome at both campuses.
All current SFUSD 5th-, 6th- and 7th-grade students interested in the arts are eligible to apply. Students will receive audition and portfolio information for the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts as part of the program.
The OMIE Beacon's Urban Explorers Summer Camp application will be released on Monday 3/14 to James Denman students for a three week (plus Spring Break) priority period. On April 9th, the application will be released to the general public at our Community and Family Resource Fair at JDMS. Our camp always fills up when we open it up to the public, so please take advantage of the Denman priority period! The application will be at the Beacon office (JDMS room 181) and at the front table during Beacon program hours. You don't have to be in school year Beacon to be a camp participant!
