December 5, 2013
DACC staff, students, and families truly know how to come together and support those less fortunate. As the holidays approach, community service projects are taking shape all around the school to help as many people as possible in Delaware County.
Thank you to everyone who has participated so far. Keep reading for more opportunities to give.
Second Look Day
DACC students may notice a few new faces in class on December 12th. Every year, area sophomores have the chance to sit in on our classes to find out if they are interested in attending next year. These visits should not disrupt our students' learning in any way.
December 16th - 19th
First Semester Exams
Exams will be held the week of December 16th. A complete schedule for that week has been posted to the DACC web site. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us or speak with your guidance counselor.

Stay up to date on all of our upcoming events on the DACC web site.
Annual Food Fight for PIN
Every December, our DACC students compete to see which lab can bring in the most donated food items for Delaware's People In Need. Currently, the south campus Electronics lab is in the lead with 2,844 points. Due to possible winter weather, the deadline to bring in food items has been extended from Friday, December 6th to Monday, December 9th.
There are two prizes at stake - the lab with the most points and the lab with the most points-per-student. The winning labs get the pleasure of delivering the food to the People In Need Food Drive on December 11th. Any student bringing in 30 or more points worth of food will be invited to an ice cream party! Use the Food Fight Score Sheet
to determine how donations are scored.
Good luck to all of the labs! We will follow up with the winners and photos of the donation after the 11th.
Toys for Tots
DACC North and South campuses will be Toys for Tots drop-off locations between now and December 20th. On December 21st, the Fire students will collect the toys and deliver them to the Tri-Township Fire Station for distribution to needy families in Delaware County.
Last year, DACC staff and students donated over $700 worth of toys for this fantastic organization!
The Tri-Township station, located at 495 Sunbury Road, will accept toys from 9am to 3pm on December 21st. They will be offering refreshments and Santa will even make an appearance to pose for photos!
Sleeping Bags for the Homeless
DACC students are collecting old ties, blankets, and bed sheets in order to make sleeping bags for the homeless of Central Ohio. This is done in partnership with SHARE.
Friday, December 6th is the last day to bring in donations. They can be dropped off in the JOG Center Room, 112A.
