A Night at the Museum

Please join us on May 20 as Desert Junior Senior High School is transformed into a living history museum. Exhibits will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The students will transform the halls of DJHS into static displays, living statues and interactive history exhibits. It should be a wonderful celebration of the students’ hard work this year in their social studies class. Nearly every student at the high school will be involved in this event. We hope to see you there.
