Finding Kind Assembly Coming to Daniell

On Friday, September 18 Daniell school counselors will host a Finding Kind Assembly for all girls in grades 6 - 8. The assembly will consist of viewing the documentary Finding Kind and participating in a group activity following the movie. In the activity we will discuss with girls the effects of girl-against-girl bullying, how we can work together to change this behavior, and take the KIND pledge. The assembly will take approximately 2 hours and will be done during your child’s connections classes. Parent/guardian permission is required to view the film as it is Not Rated, but is recommended for children ages 11 and up. Please ask your child for their permission slip or click here to download a permission slip. The permission slips are to be returned to your child’s homeroom teacher by Friday, September 11.

In Finding Kind, filmmakers Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson set out in a cross country journey of discovery and education. Interviewing women and girls along the way about their lives and experiences, Parsekian and Thompson find, among all of the unique personal stories, some universal truths about growing up as girls. Finding Kind is a document of that journey, and of the filmmakers’ quest to take these experiences and find a common ground of kindness and mutual respect.


Bringing Gems into the Classroom

The 6th grade Reading and Research classes are "Rocking and Rolling."  Students are demonstrating their knowledge on minerals by researching their birthstone and using technology to prepare a brochure or pamphlet on their stone. Websites are given to help them research the information needed.  During this project, Mrs. Mohrmann, had a certified Gemologist visit with the students as discuss classifications of rocks and minerals. 


Sixth Graders Test Drive Instruments for Band and Orchestra

On Saturday, August 8 between 10 am – 2 pm, approximately 150 6 grade students along with parents and other family members attended the Daniell Band and Orchestra Instrument Test Drive. This event is hosted annually and gives 6 grade students the opportunity to test drive the instruments to determine what instrument they are interested in learning to play when they join the band or orchestra. Numerous music educators assisted Mrs. Holbrook, Mr. Baxley and Ms. Saenz in making this day a huge success. Special thanks to current Daniell Band students and alumni who assisted in a variety of roles.  It was a great day to come up to school and learn more about the Band and Orchestra at Daniell.
