Mental Health Focus:
Are you Okay? We can help. DPSCD Cares
Mental health and wellness is a priority to DPSCD. We've partnered with programs in our community to provide strategies and activities such as increased home visits, small group counseling sessions, and mental health referrals for our students and families, as well as employee wellness programs for our staff members.

Did you catch the Obsidian Theatre Festival last week?
Nicely Theater, in collaboration with GhostLight Productions, held their inaugural Obsidian Theatre Festival last week. Produced by Detroiters and entirely in the city of Detroit, the Festival was rooted in the enduring legacy of storytelling within the Black community, and was created to uplift stories and storytellers while using the power of art to change lives. The complementary production featured virtual performances from emerging Black voices over the course of 3 days to an audience all across the country.

Congratulations to all of the
Public School League City Champs!
To all of the team members on the Boy’s and Girl's Basketball and Swim teams across the PSL, congratulations on your efforts and wins in the recent championship competitions.
The Foundation and the District are very appreciative of our donors who support athletics! The Henry-Morris Foundation Fund is the charitable giving outlet for Karla Henry-Morris and W. Howard Morris, both former DPS athletes and proud DPS graduates contributing to a number of DPS high school athletic programs including MLK since 2011! Their donations continue to create future opportunities for these dedicated athletes, thank you! 

"We are very pleased to support DPS Athletics because we think competing in athletics is part of a well rounded educational experience. We want DPS students to have every opportunity to succeed not only in athletics but in every aspect of their lives."
