At Dock, the arts are an essential component of what it means to learn for lives of purpose.
Dock student musicians and artists shine on stage, in the studio, and in the classroom, with many graduates going on to participate in the arts at the collegiate level and beyond.
The arts have a unique capability to tap into emotion and connect us to one another, which is important for all students to experience. Whether it is playing the violin, painting a canvas, or singing in the fall musical, actively participating in the arts is an opportunity made available to all students. The musicals bring together the school's entire arts community, from set and costume designers to actors, vocalists, and musicians.
Teachers work together to ensure students stay involved and learn valuable skills--creativity, confidence, perseverance, how to receive constructive feedback, collaboration--in the process. With Philadelphia and New York nearby, Dock students are able to participate in organized trips to prestigious art galleries, theaters, and concert halls.
Students in Montgomery County are smoking cigarettes less—but they are vaping more. Sometimes perceived as a “safer, healthier” alternative to smoking, vaping continues to increase dramatically, putting users at risk. Parents interested in more information about vaping are invited to attend a Parent Forum on Thursday, January 30, at 7:00 p.m. in the Rosenberger Academic Center library at Dock Mennonite Academy.
The forum will feature guest speaker David Fialko, a certified tobacco prevention and treatment specialist for The Council of Southeast Pennsylvania, Inc. Mr. Fialko made a presentation on vaping to faculty and staff at Dock during the 2018-19 school year, and the response was so favorable that the school asked him back to educate students on the realities of vaping. After his Parent Forum presentation, Mr. Fialko will hold a question & answer session.
If you have questions about the Parent Forum, please contact Dock Mennonite Academy at 215.362.2675. The Grades 9-12 Campus is located at 1000 Forty Foot Road, Lansdale, PA 19446.
