April 10 - 15, 2023 - Eagle Eye News

We pray you had a wonderful Easter Weekend celebrating our risen Lord! Enjoy one more day off from school Monday, 4/10, while our staff prep and plan during in-service. Find all the upcoming details in the Eagle Eye and the following important highlights.


Senior Spotlight – McKenna Phifer

McKenna has been a student at DCS since the 3rd grade. She says it will be weird to move on to new adventures without having the familiarity of her classmates and the DCS community. McKenna will be going to Corban University where she will be majoring in Pre-Med and possibly Communications.  From there she will either go on to medical school or pursue a master's in public health. This year, God has given McKenna a lot of clarity about her next steps, and she has learned to trust in Him and His plan for her life. “Even when things don’t go as expected, He has a plan and it’s way better than mine!”

It is for students entering 7th- 12th grades that are in good standing, and 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 electronic application under the Keaton Coffey heading. https://dcef4you.org/keaton-coffey/ Please email hannah.r.rankin@gmail.com with any questions.
