#DPS Celebrates began in 2021 to explore our commonalities and acknowledge the plethora of cultures represented throughout the Durham Public Schools stakeholder community. The monthly virtual event is designed to promote engagement between the district and its communities around topics of interest and relevance.
“This is an opportunity to share knowledge, empower and promote awareness through remote learning district wide,” said Melissa Perez, K-12 Specialist, World Languages.
The DPS Celebrates campaign has featured notable women, character traits, equity-related topics such as race and culture’s influence on the media, arts in the schools, and special observances like National Foreign Language Week and Black History Month.
DPS Celebrates programs can be found on the district’s YouTube channel
