Good morning Seahawk Nation,
Perhaps there is something to the four-day workweek? Happy Tuesday!
We have another busy week with Saturday being a very big day for DMA! Open House is really coming together well and we are excited to showcase our wonderful cadets, school and campus!
Here is your report for the week:
- The positive number of Covid-19 cases for last week (10/4-10/8) was three (3). The total for the school year is twelve (12).
- Over the next several weeks, 9th grade cadets will have a scoliosis screening, vision screening and hearing screening during their Naval Science classes by the school nurse. Scoliosis screenings will be conducted on Fridays only. If you wear glasses or contacts, please wear or bring them on the day your class is having the vision screening. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Dolan with any questions.
- A message from the PTA: Special thanks to all those who are donating items for our Open House this coming weekend. We still have a few needs, so please see the link below if you are in the position to help. It will be a fun day for all! Thanks in advance – your support is always appreciated!
- Please see DMAPTA.net and join the PTA Band App to stay up to date on all news, opportunities, and upcoming events for the holidays.
- The DMA Guidance Department will be hosting a “How to Pay for College” workshop for senior parents and cadets next Monday, October 18th at 6:30 pm. The workshop will be presented by Stand By Me in the Mess Hall. Watch for more college planning materials coming out to seniors this afternoon on BAND, as we gear up to College Application Week 2021.
- DMA’s NJROTC had 18 cadets volunteer for Veteran’s Resource Drive at New Mount Olive Baptist Church this past Saturday. Bravo Zulu to all cadets who represented DMA and NJROTC, and for giving back to their community.
- Underclass photo retakes will be done this Thursday, October 14th for anyone wishing to have retakes of their original portraits, or for those cadets who did not have pictures taken during the first session. If you have a package that you ordered and would like a retake done, please bring those photos with you this Thursday to school. If you were not in school during the first session of photos, you will be called down for your portraits during the day on Thursday.
- Tomorrow, you will be receiving additional information pertaining to Spirit Week and The Homecoming Dance (finalizing the details now). Tickets for this Friday night’s heavyweight bout between DMA and Howard will be sold online only. This game will be a sellout, so purchase early! https://spicket.events/dma
Have a great rest of the week and please reach out for anything you may need!
