Women in technical sciences club 

The Women in Technology club is being introduced to DHS this coming school year by co-founders Kate Sherwood, Sophie D’Elena, and Katie Sanders. The club advisor is Dierdra Pierce, the IB Computer Science teacher.

The club is a chapter stemming from the national organization Women in Technology (WIT). By connecting to the national branch, the club receives numerous benefits including training, activities, and scholarship opportunities. According to Pierce, the club’s aim is to provide outreach to young girls interested in STEM and get them involved in activities. The Women in Technology club will make its debut at the club fair on September 5. 

New DHS Pickleball club 

On Tuesday, August 23, the DHS Pickleball club was approved by the school. The Pickleball club was pitched by Kara and Ainsley Diamond, Evie Eingurt, Emmi Fiedler, Gabi Gould, Madeleine Pappas, and Stella Skillman. Diamond states, “Pickleball was always a fun activity for me and my friends and I wanted to create an opportunity for other students to also play.” 

DHS has never had a Pickleball club before so this is a very exciting opportunity for students. According to Pappas, “We are expecting a very large turnout for the Pickleball club due to the high interaction rate we got from our Instagram account, but we won’t know for sure until the interest meeting and club fair.” 

You can follow the Pickleball clubs account on Instagram @dhspickleball and join the Google Classroom using code “eaxqinw”. The interesting meeting will take place in room 3515 after school on Wednesday September 6, 2023. Any of the club leaders can be emailed for question
