glsen day of silence logo shows a mouth opening withthe words day of silence and the website dayofsilence dot orgS.A.F.E. (Students and Faculty for Equality) is hosting a Day of Silence on Friday, April 27th. The Day of Silence is a day dedicated to spreading awareness about bullying and harassment of people who identify as LGBTQ+ and their allies. By choosing to be silent, you are showing support to those who have been silenced. This is a day started by a student for students and we are very excited to participate in this national day of awareness. S.A.F.E. will be providing wristbands and cards for those members of the community that would like to participate. We will also be presenting in Gathering to help prepare the community. We understand that it is a large demand to ask community members to be silent but here are some ways for anyone to participate:

What are the "guidelines" for participating?

DVFS Community members can choose to be:
  • Silent throughout the day as long as it doesn't interfere with academics/sports
    (can answer teachers, etc.)
  • Silent for part of the day
  • Teachers can provide silent lectures through slideshow or set time aside for a moment of silence

Kristin will be offering a silent lunch option in her room (Tom will chaperone). For more information please visit: https://www.glsen.org/day-silence

dv spring music festival

We are planning a very special event in just a few weeks that is open to anyone willing to participate. It is our first annual DVFS Music Festival. The event will take place in the meeting room at DV on Saturday, April 21st from 6-9 PM.

The vision for this night is an "open mic" style performance during which the many musicians and performers among us can be heard. We are still in the process of planning the details, but I just wanted you all to know that it was coming and that your children are welcome to be part of it if they want to be. If you think your child might want to perform, and it seems as if I haven't already talked to them, could you let me know?

We will need some help with set up and take down for the night, so if any of you plan to come and are willing to help with that, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, I was hoping that we could have some light snacks or refreshments available. If you think you or your child will attend and are willing to bring some snacks or drinks, please let me know that as well. I'll be sending out more information about the night as we get closer to it. Hope to see you there! Any questions to Tim Simmons - tim.simmons@dvfs.org.
