DC Strong Week – Celebrating Community, Supporting One Another
DC Strong Week

Our DC Strong Week is a school-wide event to celebrate our community and support one another in the midst of challenging circumstances. Scheduled for October 5-10, daily activities, special surprises and dress down days, and athletic contests will give our school community plenty of opportunities to connect, cheer, and celebrate – all in adherence with the health and safety protocols needed to protect our school and surrounding communities.

The Junior Class Board will be selling DC Strong t-shirts Monday – Thursday for $10.00 each. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to purchase a shirt to wear on Friday, October 9 for our school-wide DC Strong Dress Day. T-shirts will be sold on the Upper Campus during DC Time, Lunch, and MS Activity periods. ECC and LS students should watch for an order form to come home with their student on Thursday, October 1.
