A Message from Mr. Finkle

This is my last broadcast for the month of November. May you have a wonderful time this Thanksgiving with family and friends. Enjoy. Safe travels. Happy Thanksgiving! Just a friendly reminder that we are having an early dismissal on Wednesday, November 21st and no school on Thursday, November 22nd and Friday, November 23rd!

In an effort to feed the hungry this holiday season, DHS is participating in "Can The Principal". The Peer Leaders and the National Honor Society are encouraging students and staff members to collect enough canned or boxed goods to fill my office from floor to ceiling. Beginning on Monday, November 19th, we are asking every student and staff member to bring in canned or boxed goods. The food drive will end on Thursday, November 29th. The top 10 first period classes that collect the most goods will be treated to a movie during a school day Periods 1-4. Donations will be given to the Preston and Steve's Camp Out For Hunger. We will deliver our donations on Friday, November 30th. Let the games begin!!!!!!

A testimonial from a DHS parent: My son, as well as my husband and I, could not be more pleased with the program as well as appreciative of Mr. Jain's commitment to student success. At the College Night presented by the Guidance Department, I wanted so much to encourage other families to have their children enroll in this program. Due to conflicts, my son had to postpone taking the SAT until a later month. The Staffs Prep instructor, Paras Jain, graciously allowed him to sit in on two additional classes this session to serve as a review before he takes this exam.

Mr. Guidotti's Update

Another exciting Fall season is about to come to an end. What better way to end this great season than to play a Thanksgiving Eve football game at Cinnaminson on Wednesday, November 21st at 7pm. A DHS football victory would give the Bears a share of the division title. The Bears have had a wonderful season so far. They are currently 8-1 and the community is so proud of all of their hard work and effort all season.

The boys’ soccer team had another wonderful season which ended with a Group 2 South Championship, the fourth time in a row for this accomplishment. The boys grew as a team and played some of their best games during the playoffs. The senior class will be missed. Thank you for the great season!

Members of the boys’ and girls’ cross-country team competed in the sectional championships at Thompson Park in Monroe a couple of weeks ago. Both teams had a successful season because they continued to improve with every meet. We are very proud of both programs.

The girls’ soccer team qualified for the state tournament as a 4 seed. The Lady Bears played very hard until the last whistle. The program continues to improve, and we look forward to seeing more success in the future from our Lady Bears.

The field hockey team and the girls’ tennis team ended their season weeks ago, however, we cannot forget the exciting games and matches that they were involved in. Thank you for the great memories and keep working hard in the off season.
