Message from the Principal


May 21, 2024

Dear Ron Russell Families,

Memorial Day:  We will not have school this Monday, May 27th in observance of Memorial Day.  Please enjoy the three day weekend.    

End of the School Year Focus:  As we approach the end of the school year, it is important for students to stay focused on their learning. Please remind your child that there is important learning that takes place and it is expected they do their best until the last day of school

Tracker Party: At the end of the school day on Friday, May 31, we will be having our last tracker party of the school year to celebrate our students’ success..  Students must be in good disciplinary standing to attend the tracker party. There will be snacks to purchase with all proceeds going to 8th Grade end of the year activities.  Keep up the good work Timberwolves!

DDHS Athletic Camps: If your child is interested in participating in a sports camp, David Douglas High School has many to choose from.  They all include top tier coaching designed to elevate your skills and ignite your passion for the game.

DDHS Scots Athletic Night:  If your child would like to participate in DDHS athletics next year, it is important for them to attend the David Douglas High School Athletics information night on Tuesday, May 28 at 6pm in the DDHS North Gymnasium.  You will meet the coaches, learn about how to get cleared, and be prepared for summer workouts. 

Go Timberwolves!

Michael Contreras
