6th Grade Volcano Project

In Science this week 6th Graders exploded their Shield, Cinder, and Composite volcanoes. Students decided which type of eruption/volcano shape they would model and then created their volcanoes with any materials they wanted. It was quite a blast!

Are You Ready?

Our annual "All School Retreat" is five weeks away. We take this retreat each year with a goal of creating community within DCS as well as setting up our year with a time of worship and spiritual growth. For many students this is one of their fondest memories here at DCS.
Parent Volunteers & Helpers

As parents, we have the awesome opportunity to server our students during the retreat! We have many slots for volunteers - moms and dads are welcome! We serve food, help the Sharptop kitchen staff, and staff the Snack Bar! We sleep in a "parent cabin" - not with the kids - and it is a great way to get to know other parents.

As volunteers, we would need you to commit from Wednesday, Sep 30 at 2 pm (you will drive yourself or carpool up to SharpTop Cove) until Friday at noon. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate volunteers that can't commit to the entire time.

Welcome Back Alumni

Our annual Homecoming game is Friday, September 11.  Each year we welcome back our alumni and have a tent with food for them where they can hang out, fellowship with teachers and old friends, and eat! This has become a fun tradition for them and many look forward to returning year after year.
Each year we ask for donations of food or money to help feed them!  If you are able to help in any of these ways, please let me know as soon as possible.  Thank you so very much - our alumni are always so grateful that the parents provide this for them.
Needs -
*2 trays of Chick-fil-a chicken nuggets
*2 trays of Chick-fil-a chicken strips (or Publix chicken strips)
*2-3 platters/plates of pinwheel sandwiches
*2-3 fruit trays
*2-3 veggie trays
*4-5 trays/plates of brownies, cookies
*3-4 cases of bottled water
Also, any monetary donations are appreciated so I can purchase napkins, plates, utensils. If you are able to bring any food items, I need them brought to the school that Friday between 6:00-7:30 pm.
