This Friday marks the end of the 3rd quarter and the start of Spring Break! Teachers will be working to finalize grades. Following Spring Break will be report cards and elementary conferences. Elementary teachers will be sending out sign-ups for conferences this week. Parents, please sign up for a conference time slot before the end of the week.
DCS had its first showing last Friday for the track and field season at the Putnam Ice Breaker. Competing amongst 5A and 6A schools, our DCS Eagles came out strong and performed well. This season is off to a great start!
Here is the Eagle Eye for a look at the week and upcoming events.
Senior Spotlight – Noelle Prodan
Noelle came to DCS as a transfer student last year, her junior year. She was looking for a school that offered biblically based teaching and a strong Christian environment. In reflection, Noelle says this of her time here at DCS. “The best part of DCS is the people, the community. My first day here I got invited to a soccer game and I knew I found my people. I’ve grown so much in my walk with God by being here at DCS. If I had stayed in public school, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.” When asked what she is going to miss the most about DCS, Noelle said, “Everyone and everything, from choir to helping as a TA in 1st grade to everything in between!” After graduation, Noelle will be attending local community college for her pre-req’s, then transferring to Corban University to complete an early elementary teaching degree. Her ultimate goal is to become a 1st grade teacher…”1st Grade Rules!”
Lost and Found will be out on display in the courtyard one or two more days this week. After school on Friday, any unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity. A huge THANK YOU to Nicole Orr and family for volunteering as our lost and found coordinator! She has been a huge blessing to the school office staff.

The Damascus Christian Education Foundation is now accepting application for the Keaton Coffey Memorial Scholarship through April 15, 2023.
The Keaton Coffey Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 to honor the ultimate sacrifice Corporal Keaton Coffey gave in the service of his country while serving in Afghanistan as a military working dog handler. Keaton Coffey was a graduate of DCS who was actively engaged in serving and leading during his 13 years at DCS.
This financial assistance is intended for those students that understand and agree with the concept of sacrifice and service. It is for students in good standing, that are focused on a future career in a service-oriented area like first responders, military or missions-oriented non-profit. Applicants that have a heart for service in either their community, church or school are also considered. If your student fits into any of these categories, please have them complete an application.
To learn more about Keaton Coffey and apply for this service-oriented scholarship, students entering 7-12th grades can fill out the electronic application under the Keaton Coffey heading.
If you have any additional questions about the Keaton Coffey Memorial Scholarship or have problems with the online form, please email Hannah.firstname.lastname@example.org.
