OVER THE WEEKEND...

This was a big weekend for the Wildcat Family! In addition to our winter sports finishing strong, we've had several student groups really standing out 
and making us proud...

Our very own DHS Select Women's Chorus performed this past weekend at the GMEA. This was a prestigious honor earned through competitive performances last spring, and these ladies and instrumentalists were absolutely phenomenal.

Model UN had a great performance this past weekend with several individual student awards.

Mock Trial won at least 7 awards in their competition, placed 3rd overall, and will move on to the next round.

These (and other) accomplishments represent examples of experiences for our students that are of the highest quality! We celebrate our students and faculty!

EVENTS

Please congratulate the DHS Select Women's Chorus for their outstanding performance at the Georgia Music Educators In-Service Conference Friday night 
in Athens. They were selected by competitive audition last spring.
Their performance was a combination of flawless execution, mature musical expression, and brilliantly selected repertoire. The chorus and Mrs. Lykins represented Duluth in a most professional manner!!!

Bravo Catherine!

Peter Lemonds, Director of Orchestras
