Mr. MacCurdy


I want to personally congratulate all of you on enduring this novel experience during these times of uncertainty and change.  I can't imagine going through this experience at your age.  You should all be deeply proud of yourselves for following through with your home learning objectives these past 10 weeks.  Enjoy your summer.  Stay healthy and take some time to appreciate those moments you have with family and loved ones.  God bless.  Love, Mr. MacCurdy.

Enjoy this week's problem of the week, which involves running and rates.  Hint the answer is above 10 km/h.  If you have a chance go for a 1 km or 2 km run.  We all ran that distance during our cross-country running outing at school this past Fall.

Please go to the DRHS 2019-2020 FB page to see an image of the solution.  Lay a nail on it's side. Alternatively place nails with the head of the nail near the nail that you have laid on it's side.  Add the 11th nail on top of the nails.  Pick it all up and balance it on the head of the nail.  Make sure none of the nails are touching the board.

Welcome to week 5 of home learning.  We have another full card of home learning activities for you to try.  Remember to try and do 2 hours of work each day along with 30 minutes of reading and 30 minutes of physical activity.  It's May and the weather is starting to warm up nicely so spend some quality time getting some sunlight and fresh air.  Stay safe an healthy everyone.
