Do you have a DAHS Senior Graduation Pennant that you don't know what to do with?  If so, we are collecting unwanted pennants to create a lobby display.  We will take any pennant in any condition.  We currently have pennants from the 1930s and 1940s, but are always looking for more.  Please drop off your donation at the DAHS main office.
Thanks,
Mr. Rickard, Principal
