  • Senior Letters

    Attention All Family and Friends of our DHS Class of 2024

    Senior Letters Information

    DEADLINE to submit Senior Letters:

    Friday, Apr 12, 2024

    What is a Senior Letter?

    Senior Letters are positive letters written to your senior candidate for graduation. 

    Letters will be delivered to seniors at Senior Breakfast on Friday, Apr 19, 2024

    What kinds of things can I write about in a senior letter?

    There are many acceptable topics for senior letters. These include:

    • Congratulating the senior on graduating

    • Wishing the senior well in his/her next phase of  life (college, military, career)

    • Reminiscing on fond memories (childhood, school, social gatherings, etc.)

    How do I write a senior letter and get it to a student?

    Senior letters can be written on notebook paper, colored paper, stationary, cards, etc. Please place senior letters in envelopes. In the bottom left hand corner, please write the full name of the student to whom the letter is addressed. It is often easier for a parent to collect the letters and put them in one envelope for the senior. (Please do not use nicknames.)

    How to send a senior letter?

    • Parents and local friends/family may bring their letters to the school and drop them off in the drop box in the front office.  

    • Students and Discovery staff may drop off letters in the Front Office, Mr. Loree’s Office (106), Dr. Black’s Office (Main St), or Mrs. Malcom's room (304). 

    • Staff and friends from our local school cluster may send letters through our interoffice mail carrier.

    • Friends and family who live farther away can mail their letters directly to the school. If you choose to mail your letter, please label the envelope like the example below:

    Who reads the senior letters?

    Senior letters are delivered to students unopened. The only time we open a letter is when the information on the outside does NOT allow us to determine who should receive the letter. In that case we open the letter to try to determine to whom to deliver it.

    Can people send items other than letters?

    NO!! If people want to send money, please have them send it directly to your house. We make EVERY effort to deliver the right letters to the right people, and we are very successful at this, but we wouldn’t want something to accidentally happen to your money. If people want to send you gifts, photo albums, etc., please have them deliver those to your home.

    When can I begin turning in senior letters?

    We are accepting letters NOW,  through Friday, April 12th .  After 4/12/24, we will NOT accept any letters.

    If you have questions, please contact any of the following Senior Sponsors:

    Danielle.Malcom@gcpsk12.org

    --> Immediately go find your row number and seat, Sit down & stay there!
    -->Practice will take 2-3 hours. You cannot leave early or you will not get your tickets to graduation. You will receive your 12 guest tickets, yearbook (if applicable), parking pass, and senior gift at the END of practice.
    -->You MUST pay any overdue fines/dues/fees and turn in your laptop BEFORE you receive these items.
    --> You do NOT need to wear your graduation attire for practice.  But....if you plan to wear high heels, you might want to bring those to practice walking up the stairs and across the stage!

    AFTER practice, 
    1. You will be dismissed by rows, so sit still.

    2. While you wait to be dismissed, use your phone to access the Discovery eClass homepage.

    -->If you have a GREEN CHECK with your name above it, you may go straight to the AUX gym to pick up your tickets, parking pass, senior gift, (and yearbook if you paid dues by 1/31). 

    -->If you DO NOT HAVE A GREEN CHECK, you must report to the media center to turn in overdue items or pay the fines.  Fines can ONLY be paid using your MyPaymentsPlus account.  NO CASH OR CREDIT CARDS. Once you pay via MPP, bring your receipt and green check to the AUX gym to confirm payment and receive your stuff.
