Growing Minds, Growing Hearts

growing hearts minds

 "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." - Aristotle

The Daviess County Public Schools district has accepted the awesome responsibility of nurturing the children entrusted to us, not only as students of academic learning, but also as individuals who will one day take their place in society. We are challenging every member of the DCPS family to become involved in service to our community this year. Coupled with a world-class education, these authentic learning activities will teach kids – and teach all of us – the value of making a positive difference in the world we live in.

Information about our students' community service and projects of compassion will be posted on this page throughout the year. We hope these stories will inspire others to follow their example.
