1412/5/12 Fall 2012 Volume 1, Issue 1 Winston Dillard Schools Newsletter It is hard to believe the first quarter of school is behind us and the holiday season is upon us. It has been an exciting start to the school year! I hope everyone had a chance to attend the Douglas High School Veteran’s Day Concert “Guardians of the Dream” which was fantastic again this year. A special feature of this year’s concert was the broadcasting of the event to our troops overseas via the armed forces media. It was also broadcast locally over 541radio.com. We thank everyone that was involved in putting on this program including Mr. Carwithen and Mr. Pust who both did a great job directing the band and choir performances.

The Trojan Loft is now open! The loft is located just to the east of our lower hall. It is a place where DHS students can get new and barely used clothing for next to nothing. Many donations from local merchants and other organizations have stocked it with some really nice stuff! Thanks to Kathy and Ron Lawrence and all their volunteers for making this happen. The loft will be open every school day in November and hours to be posted the rest of the school year. Stop by with your student and just have a look!
The annual Veteran’s Day concert was held at UCC’s Jacoby Auditorium on November 11th. The show began at 7:00 PM. Tickets were available at the front office and many other local businesses.
