The February RAMPAGE is hitting the halls during 4th period and will be delivered to teachers for their 5th period classes today. Papers are delivered to the room in which the teacher is during 5th, so look for them on the desk if you move rooms.

Please pass the papers directly to students and suggest that they take a copy home to their family!​ If you don't have a class, you can get a copy of the RAMPAGE in the main office, print center or library.

A new group of journalism students are writing for the RAMPAGE this semester, and they are doing excellent work. Please continue to recognize all students for their contributions and/or being featured in the RAMPAGE. DSHS has an AMAZING staff and student body, and the RAMPAGE and ECHO are perfect examples of the terrific academics and activities at our wonderful school. It is always good to celebrate our successes, so be my guest and shout out to anyone you recognize!

Special thanks to the RAM Booster Club for helping fund this project, along with the RAMPAGE advertisers and Union Hoermann Press who prints the paper at a very reasonable price.

Additional wellness early bird make up sessions will take place next Monday, February 23rd and Wednesday, February 25th. The following week the early bird session will resume on Thursday, March 5th. If you have any specific questions, please speak directly to your wellness instructor.

If your season is over, you NEED to clean out your sports locker by the end of the day TODAY! These lockers need to be assigned to spring sports.
