Unplanned Fire Alarm Today at DGH (Monday, December 11th)

DGH community, please be aware that we had an unplanned fire alarm today in the 2nd Block.  The fire department did come to the school (as it was not a planned fire drill).  The system has been reset and all is in order.  These unexpected fire alarms are also a great reminder to all students to have indoor footwear on while inside the school!

It’s Not Too Late to Donate to the Christmas Families’ Program

posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH community, it isn’t too late to support our Student Council with their Christmas Families Program.  Each year, the Student Council supports local families in collecting food, gift and money donations to help less fortunate families.  This is an outstanding way for our students to show compassion.  It also demonstrates extraordinary leadership by our Student Council each year.


All donations are due into the school by this Thursday, December 14th.  How to help?  Food donations are a great way to help (canned foods and dried foods, like pasta, are popular and have a long shelf life).  Many families donate gifts.  Other families provide a cash or gift card donation.  However you choose to help…it is always appreciated!


ALL donations support families.


Thank you to all those who are able to help.
