DCS 2nd graders had a wonderful opportunity to work with members of the Monadnock Rotary. The Rotarians kindly planned the pieces of the birdhouses in advance to be assembled by the students. It is such a treat to see this community project in action!
I hope that you all felt the love on Teacher Appreciation Day! Thank you for your amazing work at DCS. I love having the chance to witness what you create at your school.

DCS students enjoyed a morning filled with many different activities that brought their study of Egyptian Culture to life! Making paper, jewelry, instruments, and pyramids! Students loved the photo booth to capture the eye makeup. A fun day for sure!
As part of the school wide study of Egyptian Culture, students designed sarcophagi to house their miniature mummies. With the support of Jeannie Connolly, students decorated the cover of a sarcophagus and used glyphs on the back to depict their name. These were assembled as a resting place for mini mummies.
There is a lot to celebrate when the 100th day of school falls on February 14th! One student mentioned that Valentine’s Day is her favorite as it is all about kindness. DCS students made over 100 Valentine’s Day cards for two local nursing homes and for others in our town. Another way that DCS shows that it cares!
Friday, January 19th brought our first Winter Fun Day of the season! Half of our students enjoyed extra recess and snowshoeing at school while the other half of the students traveled to Crotched Mountain to participate in skiing or snowboarding lessons followed by free ski time. A wonderful way to end the week!
DCS students worked hard to practice to present holiday songs and plays for their families. A great presentation! Thanks to staff for all their hard work and for Bruce Simpson and Volkert Volkersz for the guitar music!
The week before Thanksgiving Break brought Troy Wunderle’ Big Top Adventures back to DCS for a Circus Residency. He worked his magic with our students and they put on a tremendous performance for families and community members. Thanks so much to the Dublin Community Foundation, DCS’ PTO, and Arts Enrichment for their support!
Halloween is always a fun and festive event at DCS. This year proved to be no different, only better! The annual hike up the hill to the center of town was good exercise. We were met by Dublin’s own Paws Patrol! Students enjoyed the costumes of the town staff as well as the candy handed out by Yankee Magazine.
Wednesday was damp, but not rainy enough to stop DCS’ students from walking to school! Students were dropped at the Dublin General Store, crossed busy Route 101 with the help of the Dublin Police, and walked the half a mile to school. This is a great way to start our day!
