Assistant Principal/Activity Director's Message

Welcome to the Activities office of Douglas County High School.'DC' is a large school, and with that offers many opportunities for students to get involved.We are proud to offer students multiple clubs and activities.Better grades, new friendships and improved time management skills are only a few of the many benefits gained by participating in extra/co-curricular activities.
Students can make a significant impact in their high school career bridging into adulthood by getting involved.We encourage ALL of our students to participate in an activity.Activities play a critical role in the education process. Research shows athletics, music, drama and clubs support student learning and enrich school experiences.
According to the National Federation of State High Schools Association, students who participate in activities programs have higher grade point averages, better attendance records, lower drop-out rates and fewer disciplinary problems. The association also says participation in activities is a predictor of a student's later success in higher learning, a career and in becoming a contributing member of society as a whole.
Students involved in activities learn powerful lessons about teamwork, camaraderie, responsibility, hard work and self-discipline. I hope every Douglas County student has a rewarding high school experience filled with valuable experiences in clubs and activities. You only get to experience high school life once. Make the most of it in everything you do!! GET INVOLVED!!
