Legacy Brick Campaign

Families of Seniors,


The Del Norte High School Athletic Foundation would like to join you in celebrating your Senior. We have created an opportunity to leave your mark at The Nest by participating in the Legacy Brick Campaign. With the help of our sponsors, we have built a Nighthawk monument on campus that has many uniquely engraved bricks. These bricks have been purchased by families to commemorate their student’s time at Del Norte. Whether on the court or field, or in the classroom or on stage, adding a brick to this growing monument is a great way to celebrate your student's accomplishments .

We invite you to LOG IN HERE and design a brick to honor your Senior's hard work and dedication and help them forever leave their mark on campus. There are different bricks and ways to customize your engraved message. Please check out and enjoy creating a lasting message that your student can visit as an alumni in years to come.
