BHM CD, Spirit Week and Week 24 Preview

Greetings Designers and Design Families!

We are wrapping up a fantastic and fun week at DVD! We handed out roses to each student on Valentine’s Day, we showed out with our Spirit Week dress up days, and we culminated it all with an amazing community dialogue assembly celebrating Black History Month. CD, hosted by our awesome Black Student Union and their advisors, had the whole school community sharing in the joy as we had games, dancing, awards, and even a Soul Train style fashion show, all backed by a live DJ. See below for photos!
