On behalf of the students and staff at Danville High School, I would like to express sincere gratitude to the members of the Danville community who partnered with us to make Intersession 2012 a tremendous success. Students were responsible for designing their own college and career readiness plan for the week, and many of those plans involved both the local and larger community.
Our students discovered that everyone was willing to help! From attorney Stephen Dexter to our hospital and local veterinarians to police officers as well as many, many others, everyone gave an enthusiastic, “Yes!” when our students asked if they could spend time learning from them.
Already, we are working to plan Intersession 2013! In the meantime, we are collecting our students’ reflections, pictures and video clips on our Intersession website at www.dhsintersession. org.
We would also like to invite everyone to our Celebration of Learning at Danville High School on Thursday, March 15, from 5-7 p.m. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to showcase some of their very best work, including Intersession projects. We hope you will join us!
Again, many thanks for helping to make Intersession 2012 a great success for our students. It is so nice to be part of a community where kids, our most valuable resource, really are first!
