Updates from Mrs. Bassett and Mrs. Curry

What's happening?
We are in the midst of Parent/Teacher Conferences and Spring Break!  This is a great time to communicate with teachers as well as take advantage of some relaxation.  Our students work hard and stay busy; Conferences and Spring Break can be opportunities to celebrate that and re-charge for the final two months of the school year!

College Readiness
  • College-bound Seniors, keep working on financial aid through Local Scholarships on your Google Classroom.
  • Seniors headed to the workforce or military, visit with Mrs. Bassett or Mrs. Curry if you'd like help with a job/housing search or any other support with your next step.
  • Juniors, this is a great time to plan your first or next ACT testing time.  Check out dates and prep here: http://www.act.org/. 
    • DCG will be hosting an ACT Prep workshop on March 29th.  Register here: http://www.doorwaytocollege.com/. 
    • Follow @ACTStudent on Twitter for excellent test prep options.
  • Sophomores, pick up a planning timeline from the Deans Office, if you have not yet done so.  This will help you prepare for the next couple years and beyond.

  1. We attended an event here this past Sunday & had an awesome experience from beginning to end. They served great food and the salad I had for dinner was delicious. The service at the event venue also was impeccable.
