Dilworth Dragons Welcomed Kate T. Parker

Kate T. Parker, photographer and author, spoke to Dilworth Dragons about “finding your passion and believing in yourself”.  This important message was shared as she promoted her new book, Strong is the New Pretty: A Celebration of Girls Being Themselves.  She began taking photos of her daughters demonstrating strength, silliness, passion, and heart in their everyday lives.  Once the photos were posted online, other organizations reached out to her to work in collaboration with promoting the celebration of strength and confidence in girls.  Ms. Parker said that she used over 30,000 photos to create the 200 page book.  Her message resonated with several students as they asked thoughtful questions about “super powers”, “passion” and “hard work”.  Thank you The Kings English for sponsoring Kate T. Parker’s visit to Dilworth!

Fifth Grade Students' Patriotic Program

Dilworth’s Fifth Grade Patriotic Program

Written by Linette Sheffield

On February 23, the Dilworth Fifth Grade presented their annual Patriotic Program under the direction of Linette Sheffield, fifth grade Social Studies teacher.  This program tells the story of United States history and includes many songs that encourage Patriotism.  With the help of our music conductor, Sharon Jorgensen, students learned and performed ten songs, some having to do with U. S. History such as “The Ride of Paul Revere,” “The Three Branches of the Government,” and the “Inventor’s Song.”  Others completely patriotic, such as “You’re A Grand Old Flag,” “Armed Forces Salute,” and “The Star-Spangled Banner,” all three verses! 

Favorite parts of the program for our audience included:

  • Salute to Military…where those family members of fifth graders who have served or are currently serving in the military were honored for their service to our country.
  • Immigration…where several students shared their family story of immigrating to the United States of America from countries all over the world.  Especially touching stories included those coming from refugee camps.
  • If I Were President…where several students shared what they wrote during their study of the Election Process about what they felt they would like to accomplish if they were President of the U.S.

This program has excellent support and attendance from our school families and community as well as district leaders.

Students loved to perform for the school and for their families.  They were able to learn much about our nation’s great history, and why it is important that we develop a love of country.
