Under bright skies, DHS held their annual Club and Activities Fair last week where students learned about the more than 60 clubs open to students.

The clubs reflected a range of interest, including those that promote public service, outdoor adventure, and academic challenge, according to Kate Dimoulas, DHS assistant principal.

A new club to support the up-coming iPad roll-out in the late fall made its debut. The new DHS iTeam will be housed in the DHS Library and members will serve as student tech support.
