Supervisor Love
We would also like to honor and celebrate our partners and supervisors. A HUGE thank you for all the inquiries about our students. We are all stressed and learning each day how far we can be pushed but your love and commitment to our students show no boundaries. Your emails and messages have meant a great deal to them and has helped them get through this difficult time.

With that said, we have a little advice: Be gentle with yourself. You are not alone. You can do it. We support you! (DBCR 2019-2020 Motto) Sage words if we do say so ourselves. We look forward to the Fall* and I am sure you are looking forward to seeing your students again too.

* Does your student worker have a key fob, laptop, or other company issued item? Please email your placement specialist ( Tania Argueta , Enrique Guzman , or Rebekah Taravella ) to ensure items are collected and returned. Seniors will be cleaning lockers out on May 21st and May 22nd. The rest of the school will clean their lockers the week of June 8th.

We had our first Supervisor Coffee Check-in on Thursday, April 30 th . It was so great to see and hear from all of those who participated. For those who were unable to meet up please click here to watch our recording.

The next virtual check-in is scheduled for June 4th at 10:00 am. RSVP to Gelynn Hurt to ensure you get the meeting link. 
What Have We Learned?
DBCR students can handle anything that is thrown at them! From virtual learning and telework with NO breaks from in-class instruction to online platforms,to persevering in the most strenuous of times. This is to say – never fear what you give them. They are resilient, problem-solvers, and will shine bright when challenged.

Here are some of the skills our students have been learning and mastering these last few months:
  • Versatility
  • Email etiquette
  • Microsoft Word and Excel
  • Time management

All skills that will add value to their jobs when they return.

Every second brings a fresh beginning,
Every hour holds a new promise,
Every night our dreams can bring hope, and
Every day is what you choose to make it.”

We will get through this...
