Greetings to Duniway Families. Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 2! We invite you to attend our Duniway Family Night between 6:30-8:00. Our purpose is to build community and we have a variety of activities and dessert planned. Enjoy our dance team and vocal adrenaline performances, our robotics team in action, math, science, and language arts activities, a “soaring over the USA experience,” and a clicker activity with information about Duniway. We hope you will join us for a fun evening!
Battle of the Books Champs
On March 14th, Joslyn Hui, Kassandra Matthews, Jazmine Jones, and Dana Vollmer traveled to Silverton High School to represent Duniway at the Regional Battle of the Books Competition. They did an outstanding job in the battles, displayed excellent sportsmanship, and ended up finishing among the top sixteen teams. Great job!
Noah Miller, a Duniway 8th grader, has been selected as Oregon's top Middle Level youth volunteer in the 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program. As a State Honoree, Noah will receive a $1000 award, an engraved medallion, and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington D.C. for a series of national recognition events in early May.
Duniway leadership teacher Maria Drennen noted, "Noah is of exemplary character. He is the embodiment of heart and passion - of living a life with purpose and leaving a legacy through service to others. He represents all that is possible for the youth of Oregon and the future of our state."
Calling all student writers!
Winning entries will receive cash prizes: $15.00 for 3rd place, $20.00 for 2nd place, and $25.00 for 1st place in each category for each grade level (students will compete with students only at their grade level).
An awards ceremony will take place in the afternoon of April 17 in Duniway's library, where the winners will be announced. Oregon's former Poet Laureate, Paulann Petersen, will talk about winning entries and hand out prizes. Students with winning entries are encouraged to share parts of their work, but they don't have to. All students who enter the contest will receive a certificate of participation and an invitation to the awards ceremony. Last year, 150 entries were turned in! We are anxious to judge this year's entries. Good luck to all who enter the contest!
