DCHS Football
Go Gold at Friday's Football Game

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. DCS 7th grader, Nathan McLean, is celebrating ten years of remission this fall! He is alive today because of God’s grace and the research of doctors who have found treatments for this terrible disease.


Friday, September 29: "Go Gold" for Childhood Cancer at the home football game. We will be collecting donations with a special half-time featuring Nathan's story. The football team will be sporting gold socks and wristbands. Sport your gold colors.

Admission for the football games is $8 for adults and $5 for students. We encourage our DCS parents to join DCAA (our booster club). DCAA Membership Form
