Farewell D-E 360° Summer Connections 2016!

In the photo above: String Society 2016 participants prepare for their Grand Finale Concert on Friday, August 12, 3:00 PM in Hajjar Auditorium.  The annual program for exceptional student ‘stringers’ offers intensive small ensemble, large orchestral, and even innovative ‘conductor-less’ performance opportunities. 

Summer 2016: What a Great Time It’s Been!

It is hard to believe that seven weeks have passed by so quickly.  We have a great deal to celebrate about D-E 360° Summer Connections (SC) 2016.  Throughout the course of the entire program, wonderful hands-on learning has taken place.  Our campers were immersed in experiences that introduced to them many new passions,  from academic classes in math, science and writing… to yoga, entrepreneurship, STEM Challenge, and Soccer Academy. Our youngest campers in Junior Day Camp and Discoveries and Adventures explored all the excitement that the Olympic games in Rio offers.  Take a look at our online Photo Gallery for some shots of our favorite moments (click here to view, or use the Gallery link located either at right or scroll down on your mobile device).

We’ll surely miss our super summer learners as they head back to school, and we look forward to connecting with everyone again next summer for more exciting programs.
