Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Team
Each year, high school students across Georgia participate in the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl by reading the 20 Georgia Peach Teen Book Award-nominated books & competing in a quiz bowl-style event. There is a county competition, a regional (metro Atlanta) competition, and a statewide competition.
The team needs to have at least 5 members & no more than 10. Each person needs to commit to reading 5 of the 20 books, and each book needs to be read by at least 2 people.
To join, text @readbowl to 81010 or stop by the Library Learning Commons to see Ms. Hawk. All books are available in the Library Learning Commons & in Sora as eBooks.
The Peach State Tour is coming to a screen near you! The University of Georgia is excited to join our admissions colleagues from Augusta University, Georgia State University and Georgia Tech for the 2023 Peach State Tour Virtual Sessions.

Fall 2023 Schedule Information from Mr. Jameson
Students are able to see their Fall 2023 schedules online in parent/student portal (Infinite Campus) this weekend. Students will also get a hard copy of their schedule at Open House (previously called Registration Day) on Thursday, August 3. Please note that there will still be a lot of adjustments made to balance sections, so schedules will potentially change all the way up to the first day of school.
Schedule Change Requests
Schedule change requests will not be processed by phone call, voicemail, nor by email to Mr. Jameson or a counselor. All schedule change requests must be submitted electronically, using the link to the DHS Counseling Office website below. Information submitted electronically on the schedule change request form will be routed to the student’s counselor for processing. The deadline for submitting schedule changes is 4 p.m. on Monday, August 14.
Schedule Change Request Form
Students must follow the schedule in Infinite Campus. Schedule changes will be processed as quickly as possible. Please note that your instructor and/or class period may change as classes are rebalanced.
Schedule Change Requests will be accepted for the following approved reasons:
1. To make adjustments for failing grades
2. To correct clerical errors
3. To correct incomplete schedules
4. To balance an unbalanced schedule
The following schedule change requests will not be accepted:
1. Student requests a specific period and or semester for a class.
2. Student requests a schedule change to be with friends in a class.
No teacher requests will be accepted unless:
1. The student failed the same course with the same teacher, and
2. Retaking the course with a different teacher is possible.
All schedule change requests are subject to approval based on the availability of seats. The following courses are full and closed at this time:
AP Human Geography
Teacher Name on Schedules
We have some new faces on our faculty at Dunwoody High School this year. When new teachers are hired, it takes a while for their names to show up in Infinite Campus so that I can attach their name to a class. Most of their names should appear in Infinite campus so I can do so by the middle of the week. In the interim, you may see the name of a college or university listed as the teacher. I assure you that it is not a dual enrollment course or a vacancy, it is just a holding name, and once I can access the teachers name in the system, the correct name will appear on schedules.
