Building Spotlight

Did you know that The DP Nation has a chess team?

As we continue to promote different activities that your students can get involved in, Chess would be a great way to do just that. This past week our Wildcats took on Indian Hill in a chess match. Although they fell 3-1 the Cats played extremely well and we are very proud of them. Congratulations to Cordell Wooten who won both of his matches against Indian Hill.

There are so many great things to get involved in. Find out what your child is interested in and get them involved. Go Cats!!!
