    Why I Give Back to DSHA - Class of 2021

    Class of 2021
    Divine Savior Holy Angel’s “Mosaic” program is an annual tradition in which the senior class pledges to give back to DSHA in gratitude for the past four years and to pay it forward to the next generation of Dashers.
     
    At a special assembly led by their class spokeswomen, all seniors are asked to make a four-year Mosaic pledge. Seniors make a pledge to donate $12.50 a year for their four years in college - for a total pledge of $50. The math comes to less than 4 cents a day: 4 cents a day for DSHA!
     
    During the assembly, the senior class spokeswomen shared why they give back through Mosaic.

The Marian Scholars Program relies on a peer mentoring component; these peer mentors help the student engage in class, offer curriculum modifications, and lend support as needed.

    Moving Toward an Inclusive and Whole Community

    BY HONOR CALLANAN, DSHA '21, AND EMILY CAPPER, DSHA '21
    This story was published in the 2019-2020 Annual Report.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As the bell rang signaling the beginning of co-curricular time, the unwavering, organized chaos of the Best Buddies club time ensued with students catching up with their friends and girls eagerly filling the circular tables of the Quad. Vibrant noise and laughter filled the entirety of the only space large enough to house the largest club in the school — around 100 girls. Despite the normalcy of these occurrences, something stood out on this day as Principal Dan Quesnell was waiting off to the side, quietly looking out into the sea of plaid and polos. Although achieving silence among the members was often a struggle, Mr. Quesnell quickly gained the attention of everyone sitting when he revealed his plans for DSHA to pursue a program that would give girls with disabilities the chance to become Dashers. Little did we know that what started as a routine club meeting would both spark inspiration for, and set into motion, what is today the Marian Scholars Program — a student centered, inclusive education program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
