If you break the dress code you will be given something from the Charger Closet to wear.

    GO GREEN

     

    Today, April 27, has been designated as an international FIGHT FOOD WASTE day!

     

    In the United States, we throw away a staggering amount of food every day…

    263 million pounds to be exact! That’s approximately 400 pounds of food per person, per year!

     

    In addition to the food itself, a tremendous amount of resources are wasted when we throw away perfectly good food! Did you know that it takes 18 gallons of water to produce one apple!?

     

    Wasted food is also a major contributor to climate change, producing more greenhouse gas emissions than 37 million cars!

     

    Chamber Singers

    Any student who wants to audition for Chamber Singers but is not currently in choir, please see Mrs. Farison during lunch tomorrow or Friday.

Dow’s team earned the highest awards possible in robotics, the Chairman’s Award, which celebrates the accomplishments of the team over the past 5 years. And marks us as one of the top 5% of teams in the state.

 

Between awards and wins, Dow High has earned enough points to qualify for the State Championships at SVSU on April 13th – 15th. (This will be their 9th appearance at States in the 10years its been held… a feat that only a handful of teams in the state can claim).

 

Congratulations to the Robotics Team.

Good Morning Chargers,

Did you know that 1 in 5 high schoolers live with a serious mental health condition? How about that suicide is the 3rd largest cause of death in people ages 10 to 24 and 90% of those suicides are related to an underlying mental illness? These are some shocking statistics relating to mental health and the main reason that today is the first ever Dow High Mental Health Awareness Day. It has become increasingly important to focus on the mental health of our community and the Dow High Student Council wants you to get involved. Participation is simple. Ask someone how they are doing and really listen, look up stories of actual people who live with a mental health condition, or show your love and support to family and friends. At both lunches there will be a table run by student council handing out candy and provoking thought about mental health. Please visit! Remember that the counseling center here at Dow High is always open. Let’s stand in solidarity and support of those 1 in 5 students!

Poetry Lovers

Hey Poetry Lovers:

Here is important news in the world of poetry.  Every other year, the National Endowment for the Arts recognizes a nationally acclaimed poet to honor with the Roethke Prize for Poetry.  This prize is the third highest monetary prize in the nation.

Because Theodore Roethke lived in Saginaw, the prize is awarded at SVSU.  This year, the prize is given to poet, Doug Kearney.

Kearney’s poetry is edgy. It wraps words on words.  He tackles current social issues in his themes. He is a performance poet.  And he is coming to Dow High for a Performance Poetry Workshop.

Seats are limited for this event.  The workshop will be held on Tuesday, March 27, during third and fourth hours.  If you would like to attend, please see Mrs. Thompson or talk to your English teacher and we will reserve your seat.

DECA DECA DECA

Pick up your shirts in room 353 today!

 

MRD: Dow’s Political and Economic Discussion Club

The start of the week marked famous feminist champion and leader of the European socialist movement Rosa Luxemburg’s 147th birthday. Also this week the sparks of trade war over new tariffs on iron and aluminum have been born, striking fear into some sectors of the economy. The MRD, Dow’s political and economic discussion club, will be discussing Rosa’s invaluable contributions in life and inspiration in death alongside a potential new burden for the world’s laboring classes.

This week we will be meeting in the Little Theater at our normal time after seventh hour, but starting next week we will be meeting a half-an-hour earlier at exactly 3:00, a half an hour into seventh hour. We will still be going a full hour so those who have a seventh hour can still make the meeting between3:30 and about 4:00 after school.

Let the MRD be the platform for your political, social, and economic views.

Did you know that  Lacrosse is known as the fastest sport on grass? Did you know that lacrosse is the fastest growing college team sport? Did you know lacrosse is the oldest sport in North America? If you listened to announcements last week, the your answer is probably “yes!” Here’s one you may not know. Did you know that lacrosse can make you taller? Ask any high school player how tall they were when they started and how tall they are now. Coincidence? I think not.

It’s a “no brainer” if you can play the fastest growing, fastest moving original sport of America, and possibly get taller, why wouldn’t you play lacrosse? Women’s lacrosse will hold a preseason informational meeting for current and new players and their parents TONIGHT from 6:00-7:30 pm in the Dow High Theatre. Following the meeting, there will be regularly scheduled conditioning and stick work in the Green Gym from 7:30-8:30.

Dear Staff and Students of Dow High,

 

The 2018 SVL Teacher of the Year Nominations are now underway. Please take a moment to recognize the fantastic work teachers do throughout the day to make Dow High such a special place. Has a teacher at Dow high made an impact on you and your Learning? Did a teacher ever help you through a difficult moment regarding subject matter or perhaps just helped you when you were struggling with other issues?

Most of us can answer yes to these questions and now you have an opportunity to recognize those special teachers.  Educators that truly demonstrate excellence both in the classroom and with extracurricular duties such as coaching, advisers, and leaders of so many groups here at Dow High.

Nomination forms can be obtained from your teachers, the main office, or from Mr. Meitler at any time throughout the day. Please consider nominating an outstanding teacher that has made a difference in your life.

This week the MRD, Dow’s political and economic discussion club, will be setting our sights on the classroom and overall school environment here at Dow and abroad with the focus of investigating how they influence the social, political and economic views of the students. We will be using a critical lens to discover the long lasting positives and negatives of certain classroom ideas and curriculums in order that we may, as a student body, have a better understanding of our environment.

 

Accompanying our main discussion will be one no less important, that being Net Neutrality and the future of its existence in America. Due to the recent moves by the FCC, laying down the agenda for the dissolution of Net Neutrality, the MRD believes it is necessary to both educate the students of Dow High about Net Neutrality, and discuss methods of combating any encroachments on the rights of Americans.

We will be using a critical lens to discover the long lasting positives and negatives of certain classroom ideas and curriculums in order that we may, as a student body, have a better understanding of our environment.

 

Accompanying our main discussion will be one no less important, that being Net Neutrality and the future of its existence in America. Due to the recent moves by the FCC, laying down the agenda for the dissolution of Net Neutrality, the MRD believes it is necessary to both educate the students of Dow High about Net Neutrality, and discuss methods of combating any encroachments on the rights of Americans.

 

All are urged to come to this week’s meeting of the MRD, Thursday in the Little Theater after seventh hour.

 

Let the MRD be the platform for your political, social, and economic views.

Announcements for the MRD: Dow’s Political and Economic Discussion Club

 

Have you ever wondered what speech, school, the workplace and your family have done to foster productive skills and ideas that you now use today and will continue to use for the rest of your existence? Have you ever looked further past this and wondered what these very same places and groups have done to limit your capacity and sever your mind from alien thoughts and views. Many have not, and may never bring these questions into the foreground of their thoughts, and it’s for that reason the MRD, Dow’s political and economic discussion club, will be setting our sights on the classroom and overall school environment here at Dow and abroad.

We will be using a critical lens to discover the long lasting positives and negatives of certain classroom ideas and curriculums in order that we may, as a student body, have a better understanding of our environment.

This week the MRD would also like to invite any administrators, teachers or paraprofessionals interested, to here from the source of this influence.  All are urged to come to this week’s meeting of the MRD Thursday in the Little Theater after seventh hour. Let the MRD be the platform for your political, social, and economic views.

Announcements for the MRD: Dow’s Political and Economic Discussion Club

 

Today the MRD, Dow’s political and economic discussion, will be discussing the October Revolution through the medium of George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm in recognition of the revolution’s centennial that took place on Tuesday.

This historical event is tremendously important to our modern world, for it reshaped the political, economic and social structures of many societies.

Alongside our main discussion, we will also be finishing last week’s discussion about the school system of America and how it compares to those around the globe.

Hey Chargers!

`You may have noticed the new “GO GREEN” posters around Dow High this week, along with new blue recycle bins in the hallways. ….the “GO GREEN” Club would like to encourage everyone to use the classroom and hallway recycle bins first and foremost, and use the trash cans only for items which definitely cannot be recycled, such as gum/candy/wrappers, tissues/napkins, food, and greasy plates/pizza boxes.

 

A huge thank you to senior Jacob Christensen for the new, cool “GO GREEN” logo, and also to Mr. Gledhill for printing the posters!

 

As before, the green bins in the hallways, (with the two holes in the top), should be used for plastic/metal/aluminum and glass cans/bottles. Hopefully, all these blue and green hallway bins will be noticed (and used) by students, teachers, parents, and guests thanks to the giant “GO GREEN” arrows pointing the way! A huge thank you also goes out to Mr. Last for printing the large signs!

 

So CHARGERS, please do your part to reduce the massive amount of trash generated at Dow High, by using the blue hallway bins for paper, binders, magazines, spiral notebooks, cardboard and newspapers….basically anything that is recyclable!….and remember to “GO GREEN!”

CLUBS:

52 billion pounds of food from manufacturers, grocery stores and restaurants end up in landfills every year! An additional 20 billion pounds of fruits and vegetables are discarded on farms, or left in fields and plowed under. That is 72 billion pounds of perfectly good food-from every point in the food production cycle-that ends up in landfills and incinerators every year. This is a startling statistic, especially when coupled with the fact that 800 million people worldwide suffer from hunger! Rescuing this perfectly edible, whole food means feeding families facing hunger and taking a large step in protecting our planet and conserving our resources. Help stop the madness! Join the Dow High “GO GREEN” Club. Our first meeting is next Thursday, Sept 21 in room 220. Stop by at 7:10am, during either lunch, or after 6th or 7th hours to find out more and to get involved!

Attendance News
Midland Public Schools recently changed our attendance policy. We will not have a policy of
achieving a 70% on your final exam if you have excessive absences. However, we expect you to be in
all of your classes each day. In fact, we have started conversations with MHS regarding looking at
rewarding great attendance. Regardless of the policy, your attendance in class is the most
significant indicator to your academic success. Teachers are aware of this policy and may have
changed their grading to include participation as a larger part of the grade you can earn. It is
your job to be in school every day ready to learn. You do get paid for attending school. The
average salary of high school dropouts is $20,000. The average high school dropout will make around
$1 million less in career earnings than a college graduate will. Come to class prepared to learn
and succeed. That is why public education was established.

To make your lives better than your parents. That is why attendance is important in my household
and is important at Dow High School. You have to show up to improve. Thank you for showing Charger
Spirit with your attendance. My expectation is that you will continue to have great attendance
regardless of our policy.
