Important Information for June 1

DW Musical and Color War Activities: On Tuesday, June 1, we want to welcome all of our students to DW for in person activities. This will be the last day of school for our eighth-grade students. The day will include the following activities for ALL students:

  • Viewing of the DW musical, Road Trip: A Musical Revue

  • Color War parade to celebrate the end of the DW Color War Competition. The parade will begin at 12:45 p.m. and end by 1:30 p.m. Families are welcome to join as spectators. The parade route will be on school grounds. School campus parking will not be available. Spectators may walk, bike, or park at the Greek Orthodox Church at 1207 Riverwoods Road.

  • Color War Fun Run at 1:45 PM: Color War teams will participate in a short “fun run” around the school that will leave students covered in every color! We will be using color packets similar to those used in public color fun runs and Holi festivals.

  • Students will bring their own lunch and/or they may have a free prepared lunch from Quest.

  • Students should also bring a refillable water bottle and a towel/small blanket for outdoor seating.

  • If students have a t-shirt that is the color of their pod, they should wear it for the parade and fun run. Although the fun run colors are washable and should not stain, students should not wear clothing they wouldn’t want ruined.


Transportation for Students to School on June 1: Routes have been created for remote families who submitted a transportation request and a pick up location and time in your neighborhood can be viewed in PowerSchool under the Transportation tab.
