We are back in the swing of a new school year, as DCD began its 112th year on September 3rd.

Excitement was in the air as students arrived at carpool laden with backpacks of books and supplies and carrying summer projects. Returning and new students joined together in starting the year in the traditional way—by singing a rousing rendition of Rattlin’ Bog at the opening assembly in the Lowell Center. The day was full of new adventures—new teachers, new classrooms, new friends, and new playground equipment to try out during recess! Welcome back, everyone!
