Pre-AP or AP English Summer Reading Assignment Update!
Students registered to take a Pre-AP or AP English class, from grades 9-12, this is a reminder from the DHS English teachers to make sure your Summer Reading Assignment (SRA) is completed prior to the first day of school. The new due date for these assignments will be August 14 at the beginning of your English class period. However, teachers will be accepting them any time from August 7-14. Failure to complete the SRA will result in a zero on your grade, and may result in your removal from the Pre-AP/AP program for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year.
The purpose of the SRA is to prepare students for the rigorous expectations that will be had in their English classes. The SRA encourages independent learning and fosters the skills learned in the previous year. It also gives teachers an opportunity to assess each individual’s capabilities so that we can provide the best education possible. Students, this is your chance to show your teachers your best work and jump start into a new year. Your dedication to achievement will pay off! We will leave you with a word from the Roman poet Horace, “Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.”
If you have any questions, refer to your SRA for specific contact information or feel free to contact Mrs. Grace Flores at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Deming Health Care Academy graduates
Students learn more about health related careers!
Twenty students from Deming High School invested two weeks of their summer vacation to study and learn about Health Care related careers. The students attended class for four hours in the morning and worked in the community in various service-learning experiences. Not only did the students gain excellent first-hand experience in health-related careers they also earned high school and college credit through the Dual-Credit program. The Health Careers Academy was made possible by the following partners: Western New Mexico University, Deming Luna County Economic Development, Southwest Center for Health Innovation through its FORWARD NM program, Deming Public Schools, Mimbres Memorial Hospital, Deming Luna County Chamber of Commerce, and City of Deming.
