We had a unique opportunity to enrich our current Grade 8 Arts topic of portraits and painting. The NAGB (National Art Gallery of The Bahamas) came to Eleuthera from Nassau with works by Amos Ferguson and Max Taylor. The Grade 8 class traveled to Haynes Library in Governor's Harbour on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH to attend a workshop led by Abby Smith, art educator from the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. NAGB representatives, Abby Smith and Richardo Barrett, then brought the artwork to DCMS for all the student to see in person. We extend an enormous thanks to NAGB for this amazing experience!

Simeon Bethel has been accepted and enrolled at Deerfield Academy, an independent private school in Western Massachusetts!

David Miller, former IS faculty, and current Director of Global Studies at Deerfield, met Simeon during the Grade 9 trip to the US to visit boarding schools. Simeon is excited to know that there will be an amazing contact at DA who shares a love of Eleuthera and the middle school.  Jeff Armes, Dean of Admissions at Deerfield Academy, first met Simeon last November during the Nassau Boarding School Fair. He writes that, “we are so excited that Simeon will be with us in the fall and wearing the green and white. Welcome Simeon and Deep Creek Middle School to the Deerfield Family! Go Big Green 2020!”
