Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year! We hope you all had a fun and relaxing summer.

Please read Principal Dunn’s sent to your email as it contains loads of helpful information.

We’d like to start by thanking the back-to-school lunch committee, Katherine Crouse, Liz Ezbiansky, Kim Huang-Kim, Alyson Johnson and Melissa Escajadillo, for welcoming the staff back with a wonderful lunch today.

Freshman and New Student Orientation is Tuesday, August 29th at 9:00 AM in the DHS Auditorium. We will be setting up spirit wear sales tomorrow for Freshman Orientation with our remaining inventory, but our online spirit wear pop-up store is officially live!! The link for the online pop-up store is HERE.

Stay informed about everything DHSPA by subscribing to our weekly DPN via directory or directly thru constant contact. Link to register to the directory and DPN HERE. Link to only register for DPN (not in the directory), HERE.

As you can see from the above heading, “INTERIM CO-CHAIRS,” we need a couple of volunteers to lead the DHSPA this year. We have several seasoned PTO members on the exec board so you would have plenty of guidance. Please reach out to us if you’d like to Co-Chair this year.

We look forward to a great year.

A note from the DHSPA Co-Chairs

Welcome to families new and old to DHS! 

We hope you had a wonderful summer. The DHSPA is looking forward to a great year supporting our students, faculty and staff. We are working on ways to introduce fun, spirit filled events throughout the year. We will also be offering programming for students and parents. And we are so excited that these events will be in-person. 

We look forward to sharing news with you throughout the year. In case you missed it, here is Principal Dunn’s recent letter, which includes a lot of helpful information and resources.

Have a great week.
