Principal's Memo - Week 16


WEEK 16 – December 3 – December 7


Hello Brahma Parents and Guardians, 


Welcome to Week 16.  


One of my favorite times during the month of December is enjoying our student performances. This Thursday, December 6, and Friday, December 7, I am pleased to invite you to hear our DBHS Choir holiday show “Home for the Holidays.” Choir Director Mr. Vincent O’Connell says, “Our students have been working incredibly hard on this show,” and I hope you can make it out to watch them perform.

Last week several student groups earned exciting wins in their competitions. Congratulations to our Mock Trial Team, Boys Basketball Team, and Boys Soccer.


  • Mock Trial advanced to the Semi-final round and competed this afternoon. We will know tomorrow if we advance to the Finals on Wednesday…so exciting!
