Branding Iron: Diamond Bar Brahmas were victorious in bringing the Branding Iron home to Diamond Bar High School! It was a suspenseful game and the energy was fantastic as our students and cheerleaders performed our new cheer/chant, “I believe that we will win.” To view a short, 30-second video that captures some of the energy of that night, click here.

CAAP held its 15th Annual Parent and Student Educational Symposium on Saturday September 10th at the beautiful Cal State Fullerton Campus – Steven G. Mihaylo Hall. The symposium theme was “Why We Can’t Wait” and featured a host of talented speakers and exhibits. Among the highlights of the event were motivational speeches by Dr. Pedro A. Noguera, Ph.D., & Eric Moore and a Robotics presentation/discussion and demonstration by the Diamond Bar High and West Covina High First Robotics Championship teams. Despite the rain, there was a tremendous turnout for the event and we look forward to seeing you there next year.

Magnificent 7 Souplantation Fun-Raiser was a Complete Success!!!
Thank you to everyone that participated in our first SAPA/MAG 7 fundraiser with Souplantation. The event had sales totaling $1116.65 of which DBHS received 20%. We also had well over 75 people in attendance which made this an extremely successful event. One of our parents commented “It was nice seeing all DBHS parents there. My heart warmed up when I saw so many of the USB and yearbook kids too”. Again, thanks to all.
