A Look Back: Clinics and Workshops from Sunday, March 17, 2024

We had an amazing time at our March 17 Clinics & Workshops! During our Sports Clinic, students had an awesome time playing Radball, building up their skills for games like baseball and softball. Other games included Team Handball, Volleyball, & Ultimate Frisbee.

Our Pop Art Stars really did make a splash during our Pop Art Workshop! They made some beautiful creations, while our STEM students made waterslides and tested them accordingly. Cheers to a great day of learning!

A Look Back: Preseason Basketball Clinics from Monday, October 9, 2023

We partnered with our Athletic Director, JD Sand, to offer FREE sport clinics here at Dwight- Englewood. Our Varsity Boys and Girls Basketball Coaches, Alex Kuchar and Hunter DeBellis ran separate sessions for student athletes from programs throughout the region. These clinics created an opportunity for coed players to develop their game, and improve their basketball skills.
