Congratulations to our Dora Moore Students that participated in the First Lady of Denver’s 1st annual Bringing Back the Arts Visual Arts Contest held at space Gallery on May 3rd. Students created both 2D and 3D works of art that reflected the idea of how “We Are All Denver”. Middle school students, Shelby Williams and Rose Smith won 1st place in the juried middle school 3D division. DPS families and community members also had the opportunity to cast their vote and be a part of selecting 20 works of art for the “People’s Choice” awards, which will be showcased at several notable Denver locations over a six month period. Several Dora Moore Students earned this distinguished award too. Congratulations to Cassandra Zamora, Quincy Johnson, Zachary Herdon, Georgia Eberhart and Ruby Nelson for their hard work and great accomplishment!
On April 24, some of the top students in the school were recognized by Mile Hi Scholars, a great accomplishment for these individuals. Congratulations to Dania Jasim, Cassandra Zamora, Hla Nge, and Jake Punch.
