Day 1 of inservice was phenomenal! Principal Marketta Steward and DHS leadership team welcomed new and returning staff. Today’s discussions were about high expectations for all stakeholders. We are not lowering expectations. Instead, we are raising the bar and providing the necessary support and resources to help the staff and students meet and exceed those expectations.

Students were able to ask 37 year-veteran Meteorologist Todd Demers a ton of questions about what his job as a Meteorologist consist of.
