DHS is in search of old yearbooks. Did you know that Dieterich High School had a yearbook called "The Goldenrod" in 1919? And from 1921-1929 the yearbooks were called the "Di-Hi-An", we actually had one of those mailed to us. And from 1941-1948 the yearbooks were called "The Black Cat". Most people were not aware that Dieterich had a high school or a yearbook in those years or that we were once called the Black Cats. If you have access to any these yearbooks and wouldn't mind sharing, we'd love to make copies. Please contact the High School office if you have access to any of these books.

Congratulations to Lauren Garbe for being named to the 2017 NTC All Conference Volleyball 2nd Team!
We honor our veterans in Third grade by bringing in memorabilia and pictures of family and friends that have served in the military. It was such a special feeling to hear about our American soldiers. We heard stories about soldiers from wartime and peace time. Today we were even able to touch a piece of history from World War 2. One of our students, Jaden Ordner brought in a Nazi flag captured by his Great Grandfather. To see this up close is rare indeed. Thank you to all those who have served in our Military! #respect

Dieterich CU #30 Library announces a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to its school library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. Driving-Tests.org is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests. This partnership allows the Dieterich CU #30 Library to harness the power of Driving-Tests.org’s specialized practice exams to turn new drivers into safer drivers. The new program will work as an outreach to several valued groups of patrons, including teens, those with disabilities and senior citizens who need to take a renewal exam, as well as patrons at every other stage of life. Driving-Tests.org is a part of Elegant E-Learning, Inc., an eight-year-old company with a proven track record of revolutionizing online resources for learner drivers. Driving-Tests.org is part of a plan to improve global driver safety by providing free practice tests written by experts to anyone who wants to study, along with online copies of official study guides.
