There are many options for children and youth involvement in Dawson County. We have very active extra-curricular activities in Dawson County including FFA, 4-H, Career Tech organizations, many service organizations, athletics, band, music, drama and art. I encourage parents to assist their children in exploring their interests. This is a very important part of college and career readiness.
We recently implemented centralized registration at our Technology Training Center. Families moving to Dawson County will now complete all registration paperwork at one location. The goal is to have a streamlined process that ensures a positive experience for new families.
You may have noticed some construction work around the district. This past summer we began major changes to our high school campus. The HVAC system for the entire school was replaced, a third serving line was added to a newly renovated kitchen, functionality of our field house was improved, and the stadium grass was replaced with artificial turf. We also broke ground on the new Performing Arts Center, which is scheduled to open August 2016. It will house a 1,000-seat auditorium, as well as, classrooms for band, chorus, drama and art. It will be a state of the art facility that will provide an opportunity for the Arts programs to flourish in Dawson County. We will also have a new tennis center including 6 lighted tennis courts and a tiered seating area.
Please let us know if we can be of any assistance. I look forward to a great 2015-16 school year!
