Good Evening Sharks, this is Principal Smith with your weekly update.

15 week progress reports are being carried home tomorrow by all students. Remember to sign your student’s progress report and have them return it to their Period 1 teacher. DPMHS is holding a food drive until November 20th to help those less fortunate. Please drop off sustainable foods, canned goods, dry goods in the box located at the Main Office. Mrs. Torres is now planning the enrollment of students interested in taking the Pierce College Speech and Communications class at DPMHS in the spring semester. See Mrs. Torres for information. This Wednesday, Nov. 18th at 8:15 am, the Parent Center is holding a workshop, “Study Skills for All Learners.” The workshop will give valuable tips to help your student prepare for finals.

On Thursday, Nov. 20th, the School Site Council will be meeting. Items on the agenda include WASC, budget, Title I, as well as other important items. All are welcome to attend this meeting in the school’s library. This Friday, there are many activities on the calendar, including Fiesta Friday, Del Taco Fundraiser from 3-6 pm, and bowling for the Senior Class which will be $15 per person and includes shoe rental.

As a reminder, DPMHS holds 3 Schoolwide Behavioral Expectations: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. All students are expected to make choices for behavior based on these 3 rules.

Looking ahead, November 23 – 27 school will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. Finals week begins Dec. 14th, with the first finals beginning on Tuesday, Dec. 15th. The last day of school for the fall semester is December 18th. That’s it for this week, see ya tomorrow!
