Welcome to A. J. Dimond High School! Like so many teachers here, I am a DHS alumnus, 1977. I love history, art, and philosophy, and hope you, too, will enjoy these same subjects. There is one change this year from the last several: I am now rotating the AP classes I teach. This year, I am offering AP European History. Next year, I will offer AP Art History. Students wishing to take AP Art History this year can enroll in an independent study class. This summer was an exciting one. Eighteen of us traveled to Europe, and we visited Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, and Great Britain. The art, history, and new sites we visited all contributed to our having a wonderful time. Another "thank you" goes to those students and adults who made the trip so enjoyable. Are you interested in earning scholarship money? Would you like to try and earn a trip to Washington, D.C. or to Indianapolis? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then consider competing in the American Legion Oratorical Contest and the Peace Essay Contest. See me, and I will explain these opportunities to you. DHS has produced state winners in both, and you could be next! I hope to see you around Dimond. Mr. Brown
