Spring Break Trip 2023 Student Trip to Italy
Students from Dunwoody High School are being offered the opportunity to participate in an international educational trip to explore Italy during Spring Break 2023. Students must take at least 1 Social Studies AP course to be eligible to sign up (including next year's courses). Get all the details at the upcoming virtual information session.
You must register here https://bit.ly/2XxpOLr before September 22nd to receive the Zoom link and qualify for $200 off the price of the tour. Can’t make it but want the details? Click the registration link above and select “No but send info.”
If you have any questions about the opportunity, please reach out to Mr. Berry at Michael_Berry@dekalbschoolsga.
Consider the deeper meaning of "Beautiful Italy" as you experience its art, history and culture. In Venice, cars and roads give way to gondolas and canals, redefining what a city can be. The world's best collection of Renaissance art awaits in Florence. And in Rome, behold Michelangelo's take on creation at the Sistine Chapel and retrace the footsteps of ancient Romans at the Colosseum.
PTSO Membership Drive - Stay in the Know!
We are encouraging every family to join the DHS PTSO. If you are part of the PTSO, it is easy to “Stay in the Know”. We have amazing website and newsletter volunteers that keep us well-informed. All of the parent volunteers who sit on the executive board of the DHS PTSO want to support the best learning and teaching environment. We are also committed to being good stewards of the money entrusted to the PTSO.
Welcome Back, Wildcat Nation!
It is an honor to serve as your principal at Dunwoody High School.
We live in a special area which houses a school overflowing with students and staff who push for excellence academically, athletically, and socially. We are all part of the Dunwoody Experience. This new opportunity to begin another school year will be one which will embrace the power of Wildcat Pride!
Click here for additional information on Registration, held on July 29.
As the school year kicks off on Monday, August 2, we excitedly prepare to have our amazing Wildcats welcomed with open arms. It is a privilege to have the chance to create a safe learning environment for your student, combined with a climate and culture of inclusion, to move a unified Wildcat staff and student body to further greatness. We all own a piece of the amazing puzzle that, when properly placed, will continue to create and embrace the Dunwoody Experience.
Please stop by to say hello and know that, as your servant leader, I pledge to direct the charge for a memorable 2021-2022 DHS school year.
Finally, please remember the District requires CATS BACK, MASKS ON when in the building!
With Wildcat Pride,
Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat
Farewell Message from Principal Cole
It is with mixed emotions that I send this message. I have decided to resign as Principal of Dunwoody HS to move to Tennessee to be closer to my mom and family. I have enjoyed serving and leading this great school! I will take the experiences that I have had here into my new role to continue improving instructional practices to positively impact outcomes for ALL students. I am thankful for the supportive, collaborative relationships that I have made here. I will miss each of you!
Mrs. Pearch, Region I Superintendent will be in touch with Principal Advisory Council (PAC) for the next steps in the principal selection process.
Love you all,
Priscilla Cole, Proud Principal
“Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!”

Free and Reduced Lunch Application
Have you completed your Free or Reduced Lunch application for the 2020-21 school year? Parents must submit a new application every year to receive meal benefits. The Free & Reduced Meal application can be completed online at www.schoolcafe.com. The application process is simple and takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Additionally, paper applications can be obtained at any of the curbside meal production sites and returned to any site. With your help we can ensure that all eligible DCSD students receive Free or Reduced meals.
Students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch are also eligible for reduced fees for Athletics, fee waivers for the ACT or SAT, discounted fees when applying to college, funding for home Internet access, and more. Apply to today to find out if you qualify!
Dunwoody High School prides itself on keeping parents and students informed. School Messenger is the platform used by DCSD and the local school to communicate with parents. Messages are sent via email, text, or phone call (robo-call).
Did you know that if you unsubscribe/block messages sent via Infinite Campus or from DCSD, you are ALSO unsubscribing/blocking messages from the local school and principal via School Messenger? The system does not allow the user to specify which messages you want to avoid. Therefore, if you inadvertently unsubscribed/blocked messages from School Messenger and would like to re-subscribe, please email Ms. King and a helpdesk ticket will be submitted.
Although the PTSO newsletter (DHS News) is a terrific source for information, it does not include all messages from our administrators. Additionally, it is typically published weekly, so the PTSO newsletter does not allow for immediate delivery of a message as does School Messenger (through Infinite Campus).
Thank you for your attention to this matter. We want you to feel informed and stay informed.
