The Art Department's good news continues after Saturday's State HS Arts Exhibition! Jessica Cron's "Tea Set" achieved the Spotlight on the Arts: Award of Excellence! Out of the nearly 200 or so artworks that rated Best in Site from the various regions, only two to four artists out of each category are able to win this prestigious award. This event was held at the Perpich Center for Arts Education in Golden Valley over the weekend.

This also marks the second year in a row to have a student advance to the state competition! Good luck at State Jessica, and congrats to everyone who showcased their amazing works!

Here is a link to the DCHS Art's website, which has photos of all the submitted artwork.

Drumline State Finals Results


DC Drumline finished a fantastic season in 2nd Place at the Minnesota Percussion Association State Finals Saturday night at St. Cloud State University.  This is by far the best finish ever for DC Drumline - the previous state titles were in a lower class of competition.  DC was moved up a class several years ago by the judges because of the difficult skills they are performing. When you look at scores below, DC is the 2nd highest of some great high school programs ! 

The DC Drumline Staff is so proud of all of the dedication, effort, time, and enthusiasm that DC students bring to floor every time they practice and perform!   

Thank you DC administration, staff, students, and community for all the support!

ACT Prep Site Available

Minnesota Career Information System (MnCIS) and the new ACT Online Prep Course and Practice Tests are available to Dassel-Cokato students preparing to take the ACT.

The Online course allows students to take a pretest and then customizes lessons for them based on their pretest results. In addition to test content they also have some very good test strategies.

The other option students have is to take one of 3 practice tests in English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. They can do this timed or untimed.

If students or parents have questions about this program, they should contact Mr. Tool in the HS guidance office.
