MS Athletic Banquet

Hello Phoenix Fans!!!

It's that time a year again for us to celebrate our CDS athletes on their amazing seasons at the 5th Annual Athletic Awards Ceremony.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we won't be having this event in person, but instead we will be showing a pre-recorded video of the festivities for you all to watch with your family and friends.

The link to this video will be shared in the weekly newsletter the week before the event, and all students will also receive a link to the video through email. When will this be happening you ask?

The video will be posted on Thursday, May 28th at 5pm. We hope that you all take the time to watch it at that time with us. Fantastic job in all of your seasons everyone!

Gooooo Phoenix!

Welcome to the SWIP

Student wellness is incredibly necessary to focus on because it impacts every aspect of our daily lives. It is important to focus on your mental and physical well being as it is the foundation upon which all other aspirations stem.

Recently, COVID-19 has required us to modify the way in which we support our students. At Dalton we want to focus on actively helping to maintain our students' well-being, both during times of crisis and normal daily life. This is where the SWIP page comes in! So, take a look around and you will see some information from the student council, SHINE, and various teachers. If you have resources that should be added to this page, or any questions please feel free to contact us!
