Band is available for Grade 5 students. Band instruction is held at North Tapps Middle School from 7:50 - 8:30 a.m. three mornings a week. Band students may ride the middle school buses to NTMS, and bus transportation is provided back to DHES after band class. For further information, please check with your classroom teacher or our office.
The 4th and 5th grade students have the opportunity to join the Fall or Spring Cougar Chorus (or both). Members practice every Wednesday in the DHES music room with Mrs. Davenport. They prepare and sing for a variety of school and community events. See the Cougar Chorus page for more information.
Anyone interested in using school facilities for non-school related activities must complete and return a facility usage application. Applications can be obtained at any school office or at the district office. Following the return of the application, the director, coach or supervisor must meet with Mr. Anderson or his designee at Dieringer Heights Elementary School to discuss usage rules and confirm requested dates and times of usage. Groups using the facility need to follow specific usage rules and guidelines in order to continue to use the facility.
Facilities are available on a first come, first serve basis. No tournaments or special events are to be conducted on fields or grounds without permission from the school.
Our library is evolving into a multimedia resource center as technology develops. Children are provided the necessary library skills as well as a place to research, link to the curriculum, and check out books for the enjoyment and pleasure of reading. E-books were recently added, so students can check out one e-book from our circulation.
Our district recognizes the importance of the need for the arts and a well rounded education. At Dieringer Heights, we have the good fortune of having outstanding Music and P.E. Specialists for our students. All students will experience Music and P.E. one to two times weekly.
Student government at DHES is known as the Student Council. It is the purpose of this organization to improve our school, plan school projects, and promote school spirit. A representative is elected from each 4th and 5th grade class. Student Council officer elections are held in the fall.
