Good afternoon Discovery family. I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Below are the announcements for this week. The Biology EOC is tomorrow. Students, who are taking this exam, should plan to be at school by 7:40. You will be testing with Mr. Scronce and Ms. Nicholson in their classrooms. The Math 3 EOC is on Tuesday. Students, who are taking this exam, should also plan to be at school on Tuesday by 7:40. You will be testing with Ms. Kellogg in the media center. Graduation is on Thursday at 7:00 pm in PE Monroe Auditorium on the campus of Lenoir Rhyne University. Seniors need to pay close attention to emails and handouts from Ms. Kellogg giving instructions on what to do that day as we will have rehearsal that morning. Juniors, what if you could reduce your stress for the fall of your senior year? Would you be interested in learning how? Well...attending a college application and essay workshop, with three sets of dates to choose from, is the answer to some of your stress reduction. To register for your chosen dates, use the following link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1b4QwDyyxfqsxY2KGV82SlvR_ymURwfcm/view?usp=sharing . I HIGHLY recommend that you take advantage of this great and free opportunity. The following link is for the Character Awards for this week: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1x9hpREQPUm27zN8WFk7DkOZTLN8zQymG/view?usp=sharing. As this will be the last week of the 2023-24 school year, I want to thank everyone for making it an amazing year! Seniors, I look forward to celebrating with you on Thursday at graduation. Like I've said numerous times, once a Gryphon, always a Gryphon. So if there's ever anything you need, please let us know. Take care. #DiscoverU

Good afternoon Discovery Family and Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there. You guys are true superheroes!! Below are our announcements for this week. A huge shout out to Mr. Barham and a group of our students for organizing a fundraiser for the family of Alden Elliott this past week. We were able to raise $700 for the family!! The following link will give you our testing schedule for these last two weeks. Remember that review sessions are mandatory and if you have a class at NCHS, you will need to attend it this week. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1R90ihvb2oINWi9aB8I4C4tL6oBMDKMakrcaIHJc90kQ/edit?usp=sharing Students, once you have finished your last test for the school year, you will need to turn in your chromebook, charger, and case. Please make sure you have all three of those items when you turn them in. You will be charged for anything missing. DHS finished 6th this school year in the Scholastic Cup standings. Congratulations to all of the scholastic teams that helped us achieve this ranking. Juniors: what if you could reduce your stress for the fall of your senior year? Would you be interested in learning how? Well...attending a college application and essay workshop, with three sets of dates to choose from, is the answer to some of your stress reduction. To register for your chosen dates, use the link in the attached flier. I HIGHLY recommend that you take advantage of this great and free opportunity. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1b4QwDyyxfqsxY2KGV82SlvR_ymURwfcm/view?usp=drive_link Seniors, please pay special attention to the email I forwarded to you this past week on how to download your emails. As a reminder, your email account will be deactivated on May 30th. Graduation will be on Thursday May 23rd at 7:00 pm in PE Monroe Auditorium on the campus of Lenoir Rhyne University. I can't wait to celebrate all of our graduates that evening for all of their accomplishments during their high school career. Our excessive absence committee will be meeting this week to determine who needs to make up time. Be sure to watch your emails carefully as we will be emailing students if they owe us time. Remember, that if you owe time and do not make it up, then you will not receive credit for that course(s). It's hard to believe that we only have two weeks remaining. Let's finish strong!! As always, if there is anything you need, please reach out. Take care. #DiscoverU
