Because of the snow, Halloween Clean-Up has been postponed to a later date. Stay tuned.
Senior Taite Woolsey has been chosen by the student body as the 2020 Halloween Clean-Up General.
Halloween Clean-Up is a tradition at DCHS that dates back to the 1920s. Every year, students in grades 5 through 12 work together to clean up yards around town. The fifth graders are paired up with the freshmen, sixth graders with sophomores, and so on. Each group is led by a senior “captain.”
Each year, the teachers choose five captains from the senior class to lead the clean-up. From that list of five, students in grades 7-12 choose the Halloween Clean-Up General, who is in charge of organizing the clean-up.
This year’s Halloween Clean-Up captains are Sarah Abernathy, Emma Anderson, Lily Hendrickson, and Gracie Vontz.
Halloween Clean-Up is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 27, starting at 6:00 p.m. If you would like your yard raked, please call the high school at 475-2231.
Here is a glimpse at some of the fun we had last week at OES for Anti-bullying Awareness Week. Our theme was choose peace/choose kindness!
Monday was Choose Kindness Day, and we had many random acts of kindness happening around the building. Tuesday we wore boots to Stomp Out Bullying.
Wednesday we wore blue for the international color of peace. Thursday was Crazy/Mismatched Day because it's just crazy to be mean, and Friday was Red Day to remind us to stop and think before we speak.
