Congratulations to the DHS Marching Band-> for their continued growth and improvement. The band and guard finished in 4thplace at the New England Championships with their program ‘Pirates’. Their overall score earned them Gold Medal rating from the judges in Division 1. Congratulations to Director Jeff Daniels, the members, and the entire coaching staff for their improvement throughout the season.
Theater fans were treated to the DHS Performing Arts Company’s production of <-‘Peter and the Star Catcher’ in early November. The cast worked hard on their British accents as they presented the story about how Peter Pan got his name in this prequel to the legendary tale. Director Nate Haywood is proud of how far this production grew in the lead up to opening night. We have posted a slide show of the production in the PAC category in the sidebar.
DHS performing groups now start preparing for what promises to be exciting winter seasons. Winter Percussion-> has already started rehearsing their program and welcome new members to a group that has been very successful over the past 2 seasons. Winter Guard will host their Open House at the Oakdale School on Monday, November 19thstarting at 6. Students in grades 8-12 are welcome to attend to meet the new coaching staff.
