Bulldog Pride visited their Bulldog Buddies during flex on April 15, 2016. Mrs. Slowey's club met with Ms. Schroeder's kindergarten class for a spring fun day. The students participated in a chalk art contest, relay race, bubble blowing, a water balloon toss and launch. Prizes were awarded to the winners of each. Bulldog Pride will meet with their kindergarten buddies at DU one more time this school year before they venture off to the 1st grade.
On Sunday, April 3rd, students from the GSA @ PA (the Gay-Straight Alliance) joined Phoenix's Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to march in the Phoenix Pride Parade. The GLSEN group had a tremendous turnout with over 200 marchers from more than 20 local schools, all in support of inclusive learning environments for all students, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Students had a great time seeing the colorful floats and even more colorful people. Marchers chanted and held signs in support of safe schools for all.
All current students and parents, as well any future Bulldog (grade 9-12) are invited to attend our Parent-Teacher Conferences/Block 4 Open House next Wednesday, April 13th, from 5:30-7pm.
