From the Principal's Desk

Dear DHS Family,

First semester has come to an end; we are now beginning the second half of our school year. Students began their second semester classes on this past Tuesday, so we are well on our way.  Parents, I have already met with ALL students to re-emphasize DHS’ expectations and non-negotiables regarding badges, not adhering to dress code, cell phone usage, wearing earbuds, and disrespect towards administration and ALL staff.

Please note that students have been warned extensively, so violators will suffer the consequences as outlined in DHS’ student handbook and Dillon District Four policies.  I  have also reiterated the new attendance policy as set forth by the district and the state of South Carolina.  This policy is outlined on page four of this issue of the school newsletter as well as each syllabus that your child received from each of his or her second semester teachers.  Please be reminded that the new policy states that students are not allowed to miss more than ten days (excused or unexcused), and they cannot make up  more than five.  Once the maximum make up days are reached, the students will be assigned a Failure Due to Absence (FA) for the course  once he/she misses anymore days from that class or classes.

It is also imperative that you are reminded that students must meet certain guidelines in order to be eligible to credit recover a class. Students  cannot credit recover unless they have at least a 50 in the class they want to recover; they must have a recommendation from the teacher of that course, and each course failed will cost $150.00 to recover.

Parents, please make sure that you convey to your student(s) the importance and urgency of putting forth their best efforts in each class every day.  We want every student at Dillon High School to be as successful as they are destined to be, but it is their responsibility to ensure their own success.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any administrator, guidance counselor, or your child’s second semester teachers.  Remember that Excellence at Dillon High  School is always Essential.

Sincerely,

            Timothy Gibbs, Principal

Mrs. Swaby-Douglas Gives a Lesson on British vs American English

Differences between British and American English

 Being a Jamaican, I learned British English in school, and it is sometimes difficult for people to understand what I mean when I use certain words. As such, I decided to do an article on the ‘Differences between British and American English’.

 The British actually introduced the language to the Americas when they reached these lands by sea between the 16th and 17th centuries. At that time, spelling had not yet been standardized. It took the writing of the first dictionaries to set in stone how these words appeared. In the UK, the dictionary was compiled by London-based scholars. Meanwhile, in the United States, the lexicographer was a man named Noah Webster. Allegedly, he changed how the words were spelled to make the American version different from the British as a way of showing cultural independence from its mother country.

 British and American English have some spelling differences. Here are a few:

British English -American English

anaemia, diarrhoea,- anemia, diarrhea,

burnt, dreamt, leapt- burned, dreamed, leaped

colour, behaviour, mould - color, behavior, mold)

The Americans and the British also have some vocabulary words that differ from each other.

British English -American English

Holiday- vacation

Chips- French fries

biscuit - cookie

While there may be certain differences between British and American English, the key takeaway is that the two have more similarities. Accidentally using one instead of the other will not automatically lead to miscommunication. Americans and Brits can usually communicate with each other without too muchdifficulty, so don’t be too hard on yourself if you are unable to understand what I say at times.

Mrs. Graham Highlights the Science Department

 

Biology I - As we begin the second semester of the school year, the primary focus of the science department is the Biology I End-of-Course Test.  Students are continuing to work diligently to learn the biology state department standards that are being taught by Mrs. Graham, Mr. Robinson  and Mrs. Ansted.  With hard work, nightly studying, and perseverance,  we are confident that our students will perform well on the EOC test when it is administered in May.

Anatomy and Physiology – Mrs. Graham is preparing her students for their futures in the health care profession by giving them a glimpse of the human body and its function.  The class will study the chemistry and physics of the structures of the body. They will also study the Physiology of the human body, which explains how the structures of the body work together to maintain life.

Biology II – Mrs. McCallum and Mrs. Ansted are continuing the study of the biological sciences with broader topics that will prepare college bound students for a career in the natural sciences.

Chemistry – Mrs. Willis is preparing her chemistry classes for their future in the world of science and “heavy duty” science courses that our students will encounter as they continue postsecondary education.

Physical Science – Mr. Simmons and Mrs. Nchinda are hard at work introducing high school students to their first high school science course.  Physical science provides an important foundation for all of the future science courses.  Focusing primarily on chemistry and physics, this course also emphasizes the importance of good math skills.

Environmental Science – Ms. Nchinda will be exposing our students to the importance of the natural world around us.  Topics that will be discussed include conservation, wildlife, and the importance of being good stewards of our earth by taking care of our natural resources.

AP Biology - Mr. Wiggins is diligently at work preparing this class for the high stakes test this spring.  Students enrolled in this course should be prepared for increased rigor and a be willing to invest numerous hours in studying due to the challenging nature of this course.

The Dillon High School Science Department is confident that semester II will be one of great discoveries for our students!

Understanding Mathematics, Don’t Leave School without it!

 

Mathematics, is one of the most exciting subjects in school. It’s like the building blocks project: when you have the foundation, there is never a dull moment with the excitement of building upon the new project. Math is being:

Fundamentally Focused, Universally equipped, and Notably prepared for an ever-changing society.

 As math educators we take pride in preparing our students for the future. We understand as the world turns, so must the way we educate our students. This school year our Department has introduced the MDC – Mathematics Design Collaborative – approach to teachers. Our desire is to prepare ALL of our students for success, by creating critical thinkers through mathematics teaching practices using high quality professional tools. Therefore, we are making sure our students are prepared for their future one math class at a time!

Learning a Foreign Language, a way of broadening our horizons

By Zulay Burgos 

Learning a foreign language implies not only to know about a very different pronunciation, grammar, semantics but also it helps to discover other kinds of cultures as well. Spanish is one of the Romance Languages that was originated in the Castile region of Spain and today has hundreds of millions of native speakers in 23 countries of Latin America, Equatorial Guinea and Spain. It is considered a global language, one of the six official languages in the United Nations and one of the most spoken native languages in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Russian. In the United States, there are about forty million people that speak Spanish at home, making it the second most spoken language. Besides, it is the most studied foreign language in United States.

 

Spanish at high school broadens the students the possibilities of learning about new ways of living, other ways of thinking, learning about different cultures. Students in Dillon High School have the opportunity of sharing with Spanish native speaker teachers who also share with them their culture and customs. Additionally, in Dillon there is a considerable number of students who speak Spanish at home due to their Mexican roots, which helps them reinforce their mother tongue at school. This school year, students of Spanish 3 had the great experience of appreciating a show in Fayetteville, NC about the different kinds of cultural manifestations through the history and music of Latin-American countries such as Cuba, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Venezuela, Argentina, Peru and Mexico. A spectacular performance of dancers and singers, where they showed the different dances of Latino American cultural heritage. Also, as has become a tradition, the students  taking Spanish 1 and 2 were able to experience Mexican food during a field trip taking place at a Mexican restaurant where they have the opportunity of ordering food (in Spanish) in a real context and also appreciating the flavors of this culture.

 

To conclude, I want to mention a saying that says: “learn a new language, get a new soul”. In this sense, knowing more about other languages and cultures opens the gates to better understand other behaviors, histories, geographies. It also wakes up our curiosity of knowing about other lifestyles and discovering what is beyond the horizon.

Why Reading?
The most critical skill for academic success—and success later in life—is the ability to read well. I am a parent of a high school student. What can I do? 

 Here are a few tips:

· Understand it is never too late to benefit from independent reading.

· Build independent reading time into your teen’s day.  Remove all distractions.  Good-bye electronics.  Teens may be tempted to stray away from their reading if they use electronic devices.

· Start slow and build. Agree on the length of time. Use a timer.

· Offer a selection of books at your teen’s reading level and from different genres and help them find books they might enjoy. Teens can naturally find they love to read and build confidence when they choose their own reading material

· Have your teen  make a reading list of 4 or 5 books they want to read and
set personal reading goals.

· Find enjoyable ways for your teen to share what they read, including things like family book clubs, family group text or discussion time

· Read the same book as your teen so the two of you may discuss the book together. Push them to think outside of the box or look for deeper meaning. Adapted from the Waterfort Institute 3 benefits of independent reading—and how to make it work in your classroom
