Dear DBHS Parent/Guardian,

Be sure to scan the opportunities listed below.  Most activities have an embedded link so that you can quickly and conveniently get more info and/or register if interested.


Thank you for your ongoing support and for all that you do to make Diamond Bar High School one of the best schools anywhere, near or far.  We couldn’t do it without you!


Sincerely,


Catherine Real,
