DHS Holiday Choir Concert
DHS Holiday Choir Concert

The DHS Choir is pleased to present their annual Holiday Concert under the direction of Mr. Eric West and accompanied by Mrs. Lori Schultz.  Although this concert is not the traditional event we come to know, this project showcases how awesome the DHS students are and how hard they have been working during this challenging time. The songs were recorded together while wearing masks and being social distanced in the choir room.  Then students recorded video of themselves singing the songs while at home.  Using technology, the beautiful voices and videos were compiled together.  Prepare to be amazed by clicking here for the performance.

Dear Elementary and MS Parents,

Great News! Dealing with your children’s lunch money and school fee payments just got a lot easier. You can now add money to your child’s meal account and pay for school related fees all securely online from your computer, tablet or smartphone!

You may have previously been using K12PaymentCenter to access your child’s meal account and view their cafeteria purchase history. You now can also pay for school related school fees at the same time.  This further reduces the chances of lunch money and school fee payments getting lost or stolen. Plus, it saves you time from bringing payments into the school! You can schedule recurring payments, set up notifications, transfer meal funds, and make meal payments and fee payments at the same time.  It will also save your payment history so you can refer back at any time.  You will have access to your child’s account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

How Do You Get Started? It’s simple!
