Community Service Day Update:

Our 8th graders, along with a number of staff members and DPM parents, went out to 23 different organizations throughout Lake County on Friday October 12 for our 6th annual 8th Grade Community Service Day. Students volunteered two hours of their day to places such as CROYA, Elawa, Open Lands, Ragdale, Beacon Place, Equestrian Connection, and many more. It was phenomenal seeing the students out and about, while truly making a difference in the surrounding community. We could not be more proud of all of them!

A HUGE thanks goes to Mrs. Martha Zeeman, Mrs. Linda Crowe, Mrs. Megan Eigenrauch, and all of our 8th grade homeroom teacher for all of the work that was put into making this such a memorable day for all!

Take a moment to see some awesome photos from this phenomenal day. Click Here
