The DAHS cheerleaders have had  a busy and successful start of the year. They attended UCA Cheer Camp at Ashland University and received many awards. The cheerleaders received an excellent rating and three superior ratings. They also achieved a superior trophy. During the week of September 15th-17th the cheerleaders held a mini cheer camp at McKinley to raise money. There were 45 participants in grades K through 5.

Some highlights at the beginning of the season were the Meet the Team evening and some fun pep rallies. The cheerleaders participated in the Johnny Appleseed festival. They also set up for the football homecoming dance and they helped with Spirit Week.
