Synopsys Takes Our New Campus “Across the Finish Line”!

On Saturday, September 23, Synopsys Inc. brought together a group of 524 volunteers to take our new campus “across the finish line” as part of their annual Global Volunteer Day.

 

This awesome group of change-makers chose to spend their Saturday taking part in Synopsys Global Volunteer Day and making a difference in their community.

 

Each September, the technology company takes on a “high impact, done-in-a-day” service project, bringing together hundreds of volunteers to help pull off major transformations. This year, they selected DCP for their Global Volunteer Day, and Synopsys employees and families worked alongside our students, parents, and alumni to complete 5 important enhancement projects on our new campus:

 

 

By day’s end, not only were these projects completed, but our campus was also decked out with colorful walls, beautiful planted trees, picnic tables and more, all thanks to the hard work of our volunteers. When our 1,100 students returned to school on Monday, they were blown away by the extraordinary enhancements and filled with gratitude for the work done during this Synopsys-led event.

We appreciate and thank the hundreds of you who joined us on Global Volunteer Day; you have forever left your mark on our school! We are also grateful to Synopsys for their generosity, kindness and for bringing our communities together.

Below, check out photos from this incredible day, taken by DCP art teacher Michelle Longosz and students in her photography class:

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo gave an inspiring talk to the crowd of volunteers.

 

Volunteers from DCP, Synopsys, City Year, and the community worked together to complete the enhancement projects, including a maker space.
