Daegu MS/HS: DMHS School Activities

All students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular activities whether they be athletic, academic or social in nature. These activities help to shape students and prepare them for the future as part of a well rounded education.

After school clubs and activities (i.e. jump rope, art, music, math, culture, etc.) will normally occur daily except for Tuesday. There is no extracurricular activity bus for students who participate in these activities. Parents whose child frequently rides a bus must make transportation and/or other arrangements for the student to be picked up from school following the activity. Notification of these activities will be published in the parent newsletter along with the day and time of the activity. In addition, due to unforeseen training, meetings, or teacher absences, an activity may be canceled without advanced notice. The sponsoring teacher will endeavor to notify students and parents of the canceled activity if time permits. If the activity is canceled at the last minute, we will notify students via the school intercom system at the end of the instructional day.

Together, they learn about one another while attending classes, lunch, and possibly electives together.  New students and ambassadors are invited to attend outings and trainings at the youth service center as well as here at school. 

Through this process, new students learn about our grade level expectations, locker etiquette, socialization skills with peers, and generally become immersed immediately into our school culture.

Open To: Any middle school student can volunteer to be a mentor by obtaining a packet and returning it to the front office. We welcome all students 6-8 to join us and show off their Warrior Pride.
