It is time for the annual PTA March Madness Fundraiser. We would love to get the word out and really get the students fired up about the classroom competition. The top three classes that return all their notes signed will receive a reward. Last year the rewards were a pizza party, doughnuts and ice cream sandwiches. This is year they will be similar.
This week's school news features a track team promo, Dr. Love and Lion King Jr promo.
Professional Bull Fighters and rodeo clowns JJ Harrison and Joe Butler along with The Fiesta Days Rodeo Committee and reigning Queens brought much excitement, entertainment and encouragement to DFJHS Thursday morning. They presented their message to our student body about friendship and the importance of treating others fairly as "Bull-y blockers!"
Our student body was also surprised to learn that our own Principal, Mr. Peterson was a bit of a cowboy himself and even treated us to a throwing of the rope!
