Thursday 5/9

Senior Awards Night - May 9, 2019.

Parent/Teacher conferences are coming up on March 20th (3:30-7:30pm) and 21st (3:30-7pm), and we highly recommend that all students/families stop by to check in with teachers regarding student progress.  Bringing your student usually makes the visit much more productive for all involved!  If your student currently has a D or an F in a class, you would definitely want to make arrangements to attend.  We use an arena style set-up for parent teacher conferences, so you will find all of our teachers in the main gym lined up by department/content (please bring your student’s schedule with you or write down their teacher’s names).  We take the education and support of our students very seriously, every student and family is important to us, and we want and need your feedback (positive and constructive) in order to effectively partner together to help your student learn best!  There is no other business that works as closely as a school does with a family’s most valuable resources… it’s children. With almost 1200 students/families and a staff of 100+ we understand that conflict is something that will most definitely occur from time to time.  When your student/family has an academic/athletic/activity concern, we’d like to encourage you to utilize the attached protocol to communicate directly with your student’s teacher/coach/advisor (we want to make sure that our staff has an opportunity to help meet your need before the concern is addressed at a higher level).  At DCC’s parent/teacher conferences there are typically many parents waiting to have quick check-ins with teachers, so visits will typically need to be less than 5 minutes per teacher. Please approach parent/teacher conferences respectfully assuming the best about DCC teachers and asking questions to gain understanding about your student’s situation.  If you realize that you may have a concern that would take more than about 4-5 minutes to address, then you should probably go ahead and schedule a visit outside of parent/teacher conferences to continue the conversation. Thank you so much for partnering with us to make your student’s high school experience a great one! DCC Process for Academic Conflict Resolution form, click here.

News and Updates:

Assessment News:

The following tests will be given to students in April.  We will have classes for all students in the afternoon. If the students’ grade level is not testing in the morning, they are excused until  afternoon classes begin. Buses will run at normal time in the morning for the testing students, and will come 4 hours later for the non-testing students.  The afternoon bus will be at the normal time. Students who do not test in the morning should eat lunch before they arrive. A more detailed schedule will be published as we get closer to the date.

  • April 9—Juniors test SAT at 7:45.

  • April 11—Freshmen test PSAT 9 at 7:45, Juniors with last names M-Z test CMAS science at 7:45.

Memory Board Guidelines:

Students are welcome to create a "scrapbook" looking memory board that will be displayed at the Senior Luncheon.  The nameplate you received today should be placed somewhere on the board.


  • Please No naked baby photos

  • No photos with weapons or inappropriate photos are permitted on the boards.

  • A Quick and easy method of scrapbooking is to upload your digital photos to the 16x20 poster size photo at a photo center such as, Costco, Sam's, Walmart, Walgreens, Target, or location of your choice. 

  • Once you print the poster, you attach it to the foam core board and add your name.  J

  • If you want to use photos, (which is equally wonderful) just make sure they have been securely attached so they don't fall off the board. 

  • Memory boards will be returned to the student for photo corrections if they are to be on display

  • The memory board is a 16x20 size.  Please do not add sides to the board to make your board larger as we are limited to the amount of space to highlight all students' work. We will add the easel stand to the back of each board.

  • Please keep your photos and memorabilia inside the 16x20 size.

  • Items that are taped to the top or sides are at risk of being damaged in transit.

  • Students will be able to take their memory board's home after the senior luncheon.

  • Students who were not able to pick up their memory board and their nameplate may do so on April 1. They will be available at the attendance office. 

    Memory boards are due to Mrs. Holsinger by Wednesday, April 17.

Please email Mrs. Holsinger, Mrs. Smelker or Mrs. Snider if you have any questions.,,
