John Dewey High Schools First Annual Spirit Day

Our first spirit day was a success! A full day of fun, food, music and a little learning. Our students and staff enjoyed games, bouncy houses, a dunk tank, sip and paint, a life size operation game and so much more. Students and staff were out in full force displaying their academy colors for all to see. You could dunk your teacher or maybe throw a pie in their face. Today was about community and family our John Dewey High School family! Here are some pictures from today’s Spirit Day. 

The J.D.H.S. Theater Department did it again, with their amazing performance of “Legally Blonde”

You would have thought you were on Broadway with our production. The cast had a ball belting out songs from the popular musical.  Sets and costumes transformed our students and school. The audience laughed and sang along and enjoyed every minute of the show. Our students spent afternoons, evenings and even Saturdays, making sure their performance was top notch. Please enjoy the gallery of pictures.
