On Wednesday, May 4, the outgoing DCHS seniors were treated to a day of outdoor festivities after attending an assembly where this school year’s yearbook cover was revealed. 

Yearbook adviser Pam Amendola and members of the yearbook class — a yearlong journalism class that counts as an English credit —put together an assembly that included a slideshow with a wide variety of memories for the seniors to look back on.

“After a difficult 2020-21 school year, the [yearbook] team was ready to move away from the historical moments that defined the content of our previous book ‘Along for the Ride’ with a refreshed outlook,” Amendola said. “As a group, they wanted to make sure all students would enjoy seeing themselves in the yearbook.”

While many of the photos were from this school year, some slides had photos from elementary and middle school, adding an extra bit of nostalgia to the event.

The slideshow revealed the long-lasting friendships many of the students had built over the years as well as the fun they had at high school events, such as Friday night football games.

Introducing the event was yearbook co-editor Ethan Duncan, who helped set the stage by describing the meaning behind this year’s yearbook theme.

The theme was titled  ‘WE are…’, with the capitalized first word representing all students and the ellipses reflecting future students, according to Amendola. The logo of that theme included silhouettes based on the faces of actual DCHS students.

After the assembly, students made their way to the Ford Phillips Center to pick up their yearbooks, peruse through them and share memories with friends.

Following that, the seniors went down to the football field where they could enjoy inflatable games, ice cream and a teacher dunk tank as part of a Spring Celebration.

While the seniors were the first to go down and enjoy the festivities, all students were eventually welcome to join in on the fun.

Some students went all out on the events, while others relaxed and took in the sunny day to read through the yearbook. 

The DCHS graduation date is Friday, May 20.
