Students who participated in Dock's Chick-fil-A Leader Academy this year celebrated their successful impact project, a fundraiser that raised over $10,000 to support Dock's sister school in Puerto Rico, Academia Menonita Betania. Dock's Leader Academy group was sponsored by Chick-fil-A's Lansdale restaurant, just down Forty Foot Road from our campus. CFA Lansdale operator Dawn Friel (kneeling, right) provided lunch for the group to help them celebrate. Thank you Dawn and Chick-fil-A for your fantastic support of our students and school community! #CFALeaderAcademy

For more than five decades, Dock's Touring Choir has been igniting students' passion for music, and providing opportunities for members to strengthen relationships with peers and deepen their faith in Christ. The blend of voices in this auditioned group of juniors and seniors expresses love for our Creator. Ms. Emily Grimes gives leadership not only to the choir, but to our entire high school music program.
The entire Touring Choir itinerary can be found on the choir's web page, along with other elements of this year's program. The choir's 2018 theme is, "The Road Home." The oil painting that provides the cover for this year's program was created by Daniel Kabakjian, Class of 2018.
Also, a limited number of 2017 Touring Choir CDs are still avaliable at Detweiler House for $10.
After two postponements due to snow, Dock's "Partnering with Puerto Rico" fundraiser was finally held on April 4—and it was worth the wait! With excellent participation from the entire Dock community, we exceeded our goal of $10,000 to help our sister school, Academia Menonita Betania, rebuild after heavy damage from Hurricane Maria.
More than 26 Dodgeball teams—featuring current students, alumni, faculty, staff and board members—competed in a massive tournament, raising more than $1,300 alone. The evening also featured an epic Knockout tournament, as well as the opportunity to duct tape school staff—EC-Grade 8 Principal Mrs. Bronwyn Histand and Guidance Counselor Mr. Ken Kabakjian—to a wall. There were salsa dancing lessons, authentic Puerto Rican foods, and educational games and displays to build awareness about the damage caused by the hurricane.
Thank you to everyone who helped plan and support this event!
