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!

2017-2018 Daily Schedule Change

We have some changes from last year. Advisory, last year’s Flex, will now be between 1st and 2nd period. We feel the change from Flex to Advisory will allow for a for a more effective use of student time. Students will have Advisory all 5 days of the week. The function and purpose of Advisory will continue to be to allow students to monitor their progress and get organized, complete school work, and get help from teachers. We will also have DCTV, class meetings, and time to complete other school business during Advisory to avoid interfering with other instructional time during the day. One day a week of Advisory will be devoted to Career and College Readiness. 

The late start day has also moved from Friday to Monday. This will allow the teachers the opportunity to meet in their Professional Learning Communities at the beginning of each each week. Monday 1st period will start at 8:25. The later start time of class Monday does not change bus times. Students can study in the high school library or visit with friends in the Commons before class begins. Tuesday through Friday the start time will be 8:07. We just wanted you to know in advance so you could plan accordingly.

This year we are taking full-advantage of our Campus student system and added a feature that is able to contact all of our parents and staff in a very short period of time for important announcements from school. For late-starts, early-outs and cancellations Mr. Powers will use this system. Cell phone numbers, home phone numbers and other numbers for parents will be called with the notification . Mr. Powers will also contact radio and TV stations as he has done in the past. If you need to update your contact information, please contact the DCHS Office. (more)

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.
