We’d like to give a big Demon Welcome to our new security guard Mr. Webb. Be sure to say hello to him when you see him in the halls!
Here’s what’s happening
You shouldn't always judge a book by its cover. Put your trust in fate and maybe you'll fall in love? Come to the DHS library to go on a blind date with a book!
Want to know who your perfect match is at DHS? Results from our love quiz are in and will be sold at lunch and after school in the commons today only. Pay $2 to find out who you matched with in your grade OR who you matched with in other grades. Pay $3 to find out both!
The Library will be closed during lunch today for the Honor Roll lunch celebration. On Tuesday and Thursday Knowledge Bowl will have practice in the back room of the library.
Are you a writer or artist? The first annual DHS literary magazine is looking for submissions for this year’s publication! All styles of original work will be considered, so please see our posters in the halls and send or drop off your poems, short stories, one-act plays and visual art to Mrs. Coon by March 13th.

Demon of the Day:
Today’s Demons of the Day are Steevie Delio and Felicity DeWeese. Steevie and Felicity were nominated for their caring act by their teacher, Ms. Creeden, who commented that “Steevie and Felicity noticed this week that I was overly stressed and falling behind with some work. They offered to come in and help out during their off period. They both always seem to be aware of the struggles in other people’s lives and will always be the first to help out. Thanks again ladies!
Congratulations Steevie and Felicity and thanks for showing us the Demon Way.
