If you bring any electronic device into an exam room you will get a zero on your exam. Teachers and other staff will not be responsible for your electronic devices, do not ask them to hold them for you. Plan accordingly, in advance for pick up and drop off if you choose not to use district transportation.

    The Intensive Instruction classes would like to thank those of you that kept recycling bins in their rooms and offices collecting water and soda bottles for our water project. Through all of the bottles we raised $300.00 to send to the organization called The Water Project. This organization uses our donated money to build wells and water filtration systems for villages in Africa that do not have clean water. Children are missing school to carry water jugs to watering holes where the water isn’t even clean. So we would like to thank all of you who helped us raise money collecting bottles with us to donate to this worthy cause

     

    DCC TEACHERS: On behalf of Ms. Loscalzo, Mr. Casey & Mr. Phelan we would like to congratulate our DCC Student of the Year MICHAEL WALSH!!!
