On Oct. 12th, all Freshmen and Sophomores will take the ACT Aspire, a test designed to predict how students will perform on the ACT. Freshmen and Sophomores will be dismissed at the conclusion of testing, approximately 1:30 p.m. 11th and 12th grade students will be excused from school for the entire day. Several opportunities are being arranged to benefit our Seniors planning to attend college next year. More information to come.

weargreenPANTHER PRIDE FRIDAYS ~ SPIRIT WARS: The top 3  Homerooms for week 1 are Paske with 91% participation, Dieckgrafe with 68% participation, and Kuipers with 64% participation. These Homeroom classes will be awarded a prize by Mr. Moore on Monday. The Freshmen class currently holds the lead with an overall participation rate of 46% for the month. However, there are 3 more Fridays to go, and I know DHS Panthers can do better than this. Do you want to play dodge ball against the administrators? Do you want to watch the administrators get pummeled? If so, pull out your spirit gear on Friday and let's have a GREEN OUT!
