Freshmen through seniors from Buckeye Valley High School, Delaware Area Career Center, Delaware Christian School, Delaware Hayes High School, and Home-Schooled students within the area have been invited by the Delaware Rotary Club to enter the 2012 Four-Way Test Speech Contest.

Students can pick up the contest rules and registration form at DACC North Campus in either the attendance, guidance, or administration office.


Completed Registration forms are due by April 6th.

DACC/Dempsey Middle School Students Are Stitching Sleeping Bags for the Homeless
DACC/Dempsey Middle School students in Nicki Wright's class recently led a building-wide service project with SHARE to stitch together sleeping bags for the homeless of Ohio. Many of these bags will be taken to Columbus shelters and be gone within a week due to the overwhelming amount of homeless men and women in need of something warm to sleep in during these cold months.

Thank You to Honda Marysville for Donating a Valuable Vehicle Lift to the Automotive Technology Program
Our Auto Tech students are thrilled to be using a vehicle lift valued at over $6,000 in their lab. This lift allows our students to work on industry equipment, making them more employable and saving employers time and money on training.

A photo and more details are available on our web site.
