  • DPE Gentlemen’s Class teaches boys skills for success

    A group of Deer Park Elementary boys is learning about etiquette and character thanks to a new after-school program called Gentlemen’s Class.  The program teaches boys important knowledge and a variety of skills, such as the importance of making a good first impression and how to tie a necktie.  Community members, include former school Trustees Jack Beckham and Tom Knouse and retired Superintendent Arnold Adair, have served as guest presenters for the program.

     

    “The purpose of this class is to show boys that how they behave leads to how others perceive them,” DPE Assistant Principal Whitney Rich said. “This in turn can help or hinder their successes. We wanted to branch academic success, which is already fostered and cultivated here at school, to social and emotional success. Bringing the two together can be quite the combination when looking ahead to the future.

     

    “Our ultimate goal at our school is to educate life-long learners to contribute positively to an ever-changing world, which, as we know, doesn’t stop at just academics,” she added.

     

    To be selected for the program, each boy wrote an essay explaining why they wanted to participate in the group and how they thought it might benefit him.  Thirty fourth and fifth grade boys were accepted into the program for its first year, and Rich said the feedback she has received has been overwhelmingly position.

     

    “The kids have loved it,” Rich explained.  “They truly seem to enjoy coming to class and learning something new each day. The support has been tremendous, and we have received so many thanks for starting this program.  We challenge the boys to practice what they learn in class, at school, and at home all the time.  Several parents told me they love seeing them practice at home.”

    Bonnette Junior High students were recently treated to a visit from New York Times bestselling young adult author April Henry.  Henry visited with students about what inspired her to become a writer, how she finds ideas for her books and characters, her surprising family history (including an ancestor from the 1600s who was charged with “pig bewitchment” and a great grandfather who murdered his daughter’s boyfriend), and more.
