Project Graduation Meeting ScheduledProject Graduation will hold a "Let's Get Started" Meeting on Thursday Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Duncanvillle East Seminar room.
Please come ready to support the graduating class of 2014 and those to follow. We are in need of Ideas and Volunteers. You may visit the following link to sign up to volunteer.
Duncanville Project Graduation is an all night celebration for our district's graduating high school seniors. The event is alcohol and drug free. It is sponsored and planned by a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, and community members.
Project Graduation provides a safe alternative for our graduates. It keeps all of the graduates off the road, prevents any of them from becoming an accident statistic, and allows their parents to rest easy knowing their son/daughter is safely celebrating.
Duncanville Project Graduation is music, dancing, games, food, karaoke, caricature drawings, casino games, and lots of prizes. Drawings for prizes are held throughout the night. The biggest prizes are for those who stay all night. Seniors must be present to win. To provide all of these activities, the volunteers need to raise over $25,000.
This event is not a lock-in but a lock-out. This is to say there is an entrance deadline and then the doors are locked. After the deadline, no one else may enter the party, but those that wish may leave.

The Road to Success starts with a Recommended Plan or HigherDuncanville ISD’s commitment to students extends beyond their high school diploma. That is why we consider it extremely important that our students graduate on the Recommended Plan or higher.
The Recommended Plan provides our students with better tools to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Their futures will be impacted by the courses they take in high school. Taking courses required for the Recommended Plan will multiply future opportunities for our students. For example, all four-year public colleges and universities in the State of Texas require students to graduate on the Recommended Plan for admission.
The Recommended Plan requires four credits of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. It also requires two years of the same foreign language. High expectations now will result in students reaching their maximum potential later.
Faculty and Staff honored as part of Veterans Day
By Kennedy Stidham
“Paying homage to those who fought for our country was an honor today,” English II teacher Margaret Thomas, who organized the event, said. “It was a blessing to stand in the same room as those individuals.”
Freshman Connections teacher Kimberly Baker, who served as second Lieutenant in the aviation unit of the Army, said she followed in the footsteps of two uncles and her father who served before her.
“I am extremely patriotic and considered it my patriotic duty to serve the country that has provided me with so many freedoms,” Baker said.
Baker said the Subway lunch was much appreciated.
“Today was a special surprise,” Baker said. “No one served their country for the accolades, but it was nice to be remembered by our staff and the wonderful owner of our Subway.”
Thomas said Chad Fitzgerald from the Cake Guys provided cupcakes and Allen Conley from Subway donated sandwiches for the teachers.
“That is one of the great things about our school and our community,” Thomas said. “They desire to honor any individuals that contribute to the City of Champions. You can’t get any better than that.”
Thomas said she honored the veterans because it was the right thing to do.
“It was essential to acknowledge that they fought for the United States of America and did it proudly,” Thomas said. “The men who work at Duncanville High School are significant in so many ways, but today we are proud to say they served in the Armed Forces and they work at our great school.”
