Hello readers! On November 28 the DHS Junior Varsity basketball team played their second game against the Loyalton Junior Varsity team. We had a great game and got great practice for the season ahead. The boys’ basketball team played in a three-day tournament in Westwood on November 30 through December 2. The first game was against Redding Christian. Our team played very hard. The second game was against Greenville, and again, the team played a great game but did not come up with the win. The last game was against Herlong. Our team won the game thanks to everyone’s great shooting. Arroyo Campbell scored the most, with 12 points and Robert Baker shot 100% of his field goals.
During Holiday on Main on December 2, the elementary classes performed in the Yuba Theatre and the traditional holiday baked goods auction followed. The younger classes sang Christmas songs and the fourth, fifth and sixth graders performed A Christmas Carol. The play was very entertaining! Natalie Rust played a very funny Scrooge and everyone was great! The auction benefited the Artist in Schools Program and raised about $1500! Thank you to everyone who contributed baked goods and/or bid on them.
