Water Bottle Drive
DBHS HOSA collected water bottles for the Johnson City Downtown Clinic. The bottles will be given to homeless patients so they will have abiltiy to carry fresh water with them throughout the day. A total of 113 bottles were collected.
In the first annual math night held at Daniel Boone High school, the math department and administrators hosted parents and students to discover more about math. Mrs. Rigsby started off the night by introducing the teachers and then followed by informing the parents and students about state requirements and different diploma options based on what math credits are received. This was all with the focus of the vision of Washington County Schools to gear students in a college or career path. Dr. Christian continued the discussion to tell why the state is moving the direction it is and what the math department is doing for the students. The parents then moved to 5 breakout sessions to discover what the students are doing in class as well as concepts about the book, options in technology, and finally application to real life situations to make the students here at Daniel Boone High School Competitive. Daniel Boone looks forward to the continuation of math night and to further support of what the school district is trying to accomplish!
