Congratulations to the Denfeld Girls Soccer Team on winning the Section 7A Championship!  After playing two overtimes scoreless, the team went into a shootout. Goals were scored by Emily Fleissner, Kaylee Rackliffe and Taylor Olson. Goalie Megan Lazzaro did an excellent job in the nets.


Students and instructors in Denfeld's Deli Management Program made over 900 meals for the October Staff Development Day – many thanks!  Mike Emerson is the Program instructor.


The East Orchestras invite you to our annual Café Concert this Tuesday, October 29th at 7PM in the East High School Atrium. Performing groups include the Greyhound Orchestra, Sterling Strings Chamber Orchestra, Concert Orchestra, and Symphony Orchestra. Each group will perform a wide variety of music, so there is sure to be something for everyone! Cost is $5.00 per adult, $3.00 per student.  This is an amazing deal for a night of music – but there’s more! Orchestra students will provide cookies, bars, punch and coffee throughout the evening’s performance. We hope you can come to relax and enjoy an evening of music!
