With homecoming approaching, DHS students are expecting a spirit week. There will be a White Out on Tuesday Oct. 1, Wednesday is Meme/Vine Day, Thursday is Destination Day with freshman in Dallas, sophomores in Orlando, juniors in New York, and seniors in Honolulu.
“They sent out a survey last year and they use the results and created a calendar,” social studies teacher Alex Karapas said.
On Wednesday Oct. 2, there will be the first annual school sanctioned Powderpuff game at the Midland Community Stadium at 7:30 PM. You can contact Michelle Charles or Sydney Johnson if you have questions or concerns.
On Thursday Oct. 3, the Homecoming Parade will take place on Perrine Road starting at 4:15 PM. Band, pom, cheer and many other groups will participate in the parade as well as the homecoming court nominees.

“You should expect an amazing band to perform, pom will be performing, cheer will be performing,” Karapas said. “We’ll also have candy, I think we’re going to be throwing out some beads and shirts this year. I think we are going to try and do a game to try and get more students to get involved.”
