October 31-November 5, 2022 Eagle Eye News

This week marks the final week of the 1st quarter as well as final culminating events for the fall sports season.  With Saturday's win over Days Creek, our Lady Eagles have advanced to the final 8 and will travel to Redmond on Thursday for the OSAA State Championship Tournament as they continue in their pursuit of becoming the 2022 Volleyball State Champions!  Here’s the weekly Eagle Eye for a quick look at the week and things to come. Remember…No School on Friday!

Tomorrow night is October 31st. Looking for a safe, fun alternative to Halloween Trick-or-Treating? Come to the annual DCC/DCS Harvest Festival in the DCS gym from 5:00-8:00 P.M.  Bring the whole family and enjoy a carnival-style festival with over thirty games and booths, lots of candy, and the love of Christ through volunteers' joy and service.
