Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center Information Update Wednesday, May 20, 2020

We are planning to have students come and pick these up on Friday, May 29th.  A schedule of times broken down by alphabet and the procedure to be used will be sent out to the families of seniors separately.  Cap and gown Invoices are being sent to student emails with an explanation of how to pay for them.

The yearbook is finished and is being printed! The COVID-19 pandemic has caused our publisher Josten’s to be behind in printing and shipping and they anticipate a mid-June ship date.  We will send out information on distribution when the ship date is shared with us.

Here is a sneak peak of the yearbook!

2020 Yearbook

Since this year is certainly one that will be remembered, be sure you don't forget about all of the wonderful events and memories of DOVER HIGH SCHOOL’s entire 2019-2020 school year that the yearbook staff has worked so tirelessly to chronicle in this year's yearbook. You can order your yearbook here:  click here to order!

Looking for a way to support our school and give back? Please consider buying a yearbook for a student who cannot afford one. We are looking for sponsors to help cover the cost. If you are interested in helping, click on the link above and during the checkout process enter “Yearbook” as the student’s first name and “Donation” as the student’s last name.

A traditional spring event that cannot be held this year is the Empty Bowls dinner.  Please consider a donation to support those in need in our community.  Click here to help.

Empty Bowls

It is time for Empty Bowls! For almost 20 years, the DHS World Arts Club has held an Empty Bowls dinner in May. Empty Bowls is a national grassroots effort to help fight hunger in our community. The premise is simple: students and staff from the art club, art department and others create handcrafted bowls, in which we would normally serve savory homemade soups and stews. Guests have been invited to a simple meal of soup and bread in an atmosphere of community tables and sharing. In exchange for a $10.00 donation, guests are encouraged to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Last year we raised $1,200.00.  DHS students have raised and donated more than $11,000 to the Dover Friendly Kitchen over the past 18 years.

Sadly, this year your hands will also be empty. Where in the past there was a handmade bowl, there will be the knowledge that you are still helping our community! We can’t serve you a meal this year and can’t send you home with a bowl, but we CAN help fight hunger in our community and we CAN build our community up! This year, the need for feeding the hungry is greater than ever before. How can you help? By giving a donation to the Covid19 DHS Empty Bowls dinner. Please donate before May 20th. No gift is too small. Then become a part of the celebration! Have your simple meal of soup and bread at home on Wednesday, May 20th. Post a photo on Instagram or Facebook. Use the hashtag #covid19dhsemptybowls and tag Dover High School Art. As with so many things this spring, we can’t celebrate in the same space, but we can still celebrate at the same time.

The proceeds this year will be going to the Dover Food Pantry through the Dover Cooperative Ministries.

As always, thank you for your support!
