Get Involved

Elementary, middle, and high school students working at their group levels in a club
  • Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

    Lady GEMS (Girls Empowered Magnificent Successful) is a mentoring program for our girls. This program provides girls with an opportunity to interact with other girls within the same age group in a positive setting. Building self-esteem, decision-making, social etiquette, and health & wellness are a few of the topics that the Lady GEMS will cover. The group meets once a week after school for one hour. The Lady GEMS looks forward to their annual mother-daughter tea in addition to participating in charity events throughout the year.

  • Literacy Night

    Literacy Night is held by each grade level during the school year. Parents are invited to come to school and learn how they can help their children build literacy skills at home. Parents have the opportunity to rotate through literacy-based centers just as their children do during the school day where they learn about building vocabulary, using technology, and strategies to build reading comprehension.

  • Student Council

    The purpose of DPE Student Council is to foster positive character traits within our chosen group of students that they will display and model daily for the rest of our student body. Our program also gives students an opportunity to develop strong leadership skills by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the Student Council serves as the voice of the student body.

    This year's Student Council is comprised of Mrs. Mitchell-Philpart, Student Council Advisor; Timilia Shellman, President; Shadorie Bruno, Vice President;  Eairyanna Bully & Cameron Walden, Secretary; Nikolas Bordes & Devon York, Treasurer; Jeiry Rivera & Olivier Blanc, Public Relations Officers
