DES Chess Team

by Meagan Padgett
DeWitt Elementary's Chess Team competed in a local tournament on April 23.  The top eight finishers then went on to the Regional Chess Tournament at the Southeast Arkansas Educational Co-Op in Monticello.  Over 60 students from our region competed.  Three DES students finished in the top 15!  The chess team is coached by GT teacher, Meagan Padgett.  DES is so proud of all 12 of these students and their dedication to the team!

Summer of Discovery

Worried about hot summer days with nothing to do except sit around, getting sweaty, wondering how great it'd be to hang out somewhere cool, doing something aesome with your friends? This summer's Gear Up program is everything you'll need! Learn about sports science and nutrition, renewable energy and climate, go on trips around the region, and make this summer count.

Summer of Discovery will be held at the DeWitt Campus of PCCUA June 15 - July 2, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm each weekday and is open to students in grades 6-10. For more information and to sign up, contact Mrs. Sissy Odaware at DMS or Mr. Hunter Smith at DHS. We can't wait for you to join the Gear Up Summer of Discovery!
