DCMS’s Zachary Carey Accepted to Perkiomen School

DCMS and The Island School would like to congratulate DCMS grade 9 student Zachary Carey of Tarpum Bay on his recent acceptance to Perkiomen School in Pennsylvania. Zach will attend the school next year as a boarder for grades 9-12, joining fellow DCMS alumna Megan Sweeting (DCMS’11).

“Zach has been an incredible contributor to academics, the school community, and the greater community of South Eleuthera. He will add a lot to their school and will soak up all the opportunities he is offered while he is away,” said Dr. Joanna Paul, Director of Education. Zach is a member of the Eco-Club, Early Act Service Club, Founder of the Spanish Club, and an avid SCUBA diver. Here he can be seen as the Plastic Bag Monster while advocating for plastic reduction efforts at a workshop on Harbour Island.

DCMS’s Will Simmons Directs Another Successful “Space to Create”

Six years ago, Will Simmons, Deep Creek Middle School art teacher and Harbour Island native, started a non-profit arts summer camp on Harbour Island called “Space to Create”. During the 3-week program, the 100+ campers are exposed to dance, drama, theater, and visual arts, all taught by volunteers. At the end of the session, the campers put on a show for the community. You can read more about the final show, “Space to Create” and Will Simmons here. Congratulations on another successful summer, Will!
