New: The final project is now a presentation. 

Remember: Each student may do no more than 15 hours of service in one place in one calendar year

Final Presentation:

During the month of May of the graduating year, seniors will deliver a 3-5 minute video presentation (individually or in pairs) to the 8th grade advisories. The goal of the final presentation is to deliver a positive message about the benefits of service to others in and around our community.

You can pick up a Silver Cord From in the Dean's office at the High School or Meadows front office. 

What is the purpose of grades? To communicate the learning to others. Grades must be:

  •  Accurate – The grade must reflect the academic performance of the student when the summative grade is given. Behaviors such as attitude, effort, late work, etc. should not affect the academic grade. DCG is considering a separate behavior or ‘employability’ grade to address this need.
  • Fair – The grade must not be influenced by factors unrelated to academic performance, such as gender, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, etc.

An exciting new opportunity is open to DCG high school students for next summer 2015.  From June 14 to June 20 2015, Mr. Mangler will bring a group of students to experience science in the biodiversity hotspot of Costa Rica.  This trip is scheduled to include zip-lining through the canopy of a tropical rain forest, white water rafting down a mountain river, visiting one of the largest active volcanoes in the world, and experiencing unique and amazing flora and fauna.

Congratulations to the following students involved!
