Seniors! It's time! The Senior Service Challenge opened on September 1!
From Sept 1 through April 30, you can log your service hours! You can't double dip and log your service hours for school but you can count your NHS hours, church volunteering, scouts volunteering, Service Week and more!
The prize: Win a pizza party for your whole class and ownership of the traveling trophy! In addition, if you log 40+ hours individually, you can earn cords to wear at graduation REGARDLESS if our school wins.
You're able to log your hours WITHIN the two weeks you volunteered.
Let's do this Knights!
Dual Credit is a way to obtain high school class credit AND college credit by taking 1 class!
At DMCHS, our options are:
- Juniors can take US History Dual Credit with Mr. Dunham/Ivy Tech Community College and Intro to Business through Dordt University.
- Seniors can take English 111 Advanced Composition, Into to Business and English 12 through Dordt University. Seniors can also take Medical Terminology through Trine University. In addition, seniors can take the Dual Credit option of Government with Mr. Dunham/Ivy Tech Community College.
- We look forward to expanding Dual Credit in future years!
To qualify for these, the school will assess your PSAT scores, ACT/SAT scores, and your GPA going into junior or senior year.
Seniors – college transcripts will be ready at the beginning of June. DMCHS is unable to send that along for you. If you are needing the class codes and grades unofficially beforehand, please request that information from Mrs. Rodriquez.
You must request your official transcript through the link below, “Order your Ivy Tech Transcript”. If you do not, your credits will not transfer or be evaluated for transfer to the college of your choice.
