On November 8th, Saturday, De Anza will be having its first school dance on campus. The dance will be semi-formal and will be fall-themed. Tickets are on sale now for $20. The dance will be in the main gym and the quad area and will have lighting, pumpkin patches, snacks and refreshments. Those students wanting to run for Homecoming Court please sign-up at lunch at the ASB table near the small gym.
Next Friday, October 31st on Halloween, Leadership will sponsor a costume contest at lunch. We will be giving out prizes for scariest costume, funniest costume, and best group costume. Dress up but remember, during class time you may not have masks or wear anything that covers your face. Be safe and Happy Halloween!
As the leaves turn and weather gets colder, be mindful that our safe dress code requires students to not wear headgear or scarves that cover their faces. We have indoor heating in the hallways so headgear is not required and unfortunately your awesome, sharp looking scarves and head gear can be confiscated and no one wants that so let’s keep those faces clear and the smiles bright!
