School-Business Partnerships that Work
Nationwide, schools and businesses are working together to benefit students, teachers, and entire communities. Successful partnerships can be found across the grades, in schools large and small. But not every school district is fortunate to have such a large company headquartered in its backyard. We are fortunate in Duarte to have two. Both the City of Hope and Delafield Corporation are leaders in their industry and have partnered with Duarte Unified to transform the high school experience to better serve our students and our community.
The annual State of the City and School District, a Duarte Chamber-sponsored reception, will take place on Tuesday, March 21, at the Duarte Community Center and Courtyard beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. Reservations can be made by calling (626) 357-3333 or on-line by clicking here.
The All-District Band Showcase also takes place on Tuesday, March 21, at 7:00 p.m. at the DHS Gym. Special guests include our grant partner, VH1 Save the Music Foundation. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.
