Senior Info Night/Student Seminars
DHS Counseling Department will be hosting Senior Information Night on August 20th at 6pm in the theater. We will be covering graduation information, the college admissions process, gap year programs, apprenticeships, the military, and financial aid. We would love for both students and parents/guardians to be in attendance. Ms. Giraldo will be in attendance to translate for any Spanish speaking families.
We will be disseminating the same information to the students at school on August 19th 1st-7th period. If your student attends DHS for English, they will automatically receive this information. If your student is participating in an online English class or dual enrollment class, we would like you to encourage them to attend one of the 7 sessions in the theater on August 19th.
