The 2018 Leggett-Umpleby Lecture will be delived by Marisol Diaz, Chair of D-E Visual Arts Department, on Monday, Nov. 19 at 7:00 PM in the Hajjar Auditorium at Klein Campus Center on the D-E School campus.
Annual end-of-year special events for seniors and D-E alumni, including Commencement and Reunion, took place last weekend, June 1-3, 2018, and held up to D-E School tradition by offering some of the most celebratory and memorable experiences of the school year.
This week presents great opportunities to enjoy D-E students' visual and performing arts endeavors! On the evening of Tuesday, May 22, D-E Stage Band presents their annual springtime Cabaret Night, and on Wednesday, May 23, students from the Upper and Lower Schools will perform a Handbell/Choral Extravaganza on the stage of Schenck Auditorium. Concurrent with this concert, an art exhibit featuring 2-D and 3-D works by Upper School students will be on display.
The African savannah comes to life with Dwight-Englewood's Middle School (MS) production of Disney's The Lion King, Jr.
Through a creative and collaborative process between African Drumming, Studio Art Discovery classes, and a talented cast and crew of D-E students, faculty, and staff, we journey together from Pride Rock to the jungle and back again, in an inspiring, coming-of-age tale. Join us, and be swept away in the "circle of life that moves us all."
D-E Upper School students are involved in a variety of worthwhile fundraisers this month! Fiesta Mexicana (Thursday, May 10); a "Dance for the World" to benefit Unicef Fiji, and a spring clean-out clothing drive all are underway now, and open to participation by all three divisions of the School.
All in the D-E community are invited to the annual All-School Spring Carnival on Sunday, April 29, which this year once again will feature the popular STEM Festival! Spring Carnival 2018 will be held from 12 - 3 PM on Leggett Field and the Hajjar STEM Center.
Starting from Wednesday, April 4 through Monday, April 30, D-E’s Swartley Gallery Series will feature works by fiber artist Donna Davies Timm. Kicking off the show was a successful artist “meet and greet” reception on the opening day - students had an opportunity to watch the artist creating a free-style embroidery on her sewing machine, to use the artist’s table loom to continue the textile work, and to further discuss the unique textiles and mesmerizing embroidery works on display.
