HERO DAY was created to build a community without violence and alienation that many
young people experience every day and to reach the hearts of the DCHS students.
Many students are facing of all sorts-problems that are real to them and they just need
to know that they aren’t alone and that they can reach out for help. This club wants students to
see that no matter what life throws at them, there is always support and that they can grow
through it and from it.

Thanks to Mrs. Mendoza, Mrs. Scott and to all the Student Service Center this club is
now something many students look forward to joining every year. HERO DAY is a great way for
students to appreciate themselves a little more, by joining HERO DAY you realize that you’re
not alone, there are many people you can talk to and open yourself to. Don’t be afraid to do so!

“It’s kind of a passion of mine to get to be the emcee and do things like that so I can use
my talents to help kids through things they are struggling with,” said Trista Fergerson, video production
teacher.

Many students said HERO DAY is an amazing experience and they recommended it to all of the DCHS
students. Students who attend  leave with a a different mind- set, meet new people and make
new friends.

“It’s a great way to meet new people and get involved a little bit with what’s going
on in school and learn more about yourself and ways to improve yourself,” said Crystal
Rojas, 12.

Many students join just to get out of class for a whole day, but they don’t realize the
importance of it; they don’t realize how much HERO DAY changes you once you leave school.

A HERO stands for:
HELPFUL: We help others, we open our eyes to the word and needs around us.
EMPATHETIC: We open our eyes, we being to see compassion manner as human beings.
RESILIENT: Is hope. It is letting go of the past so we can move forward.
OPEN-MINDED: We are a culturally diverse school and live in a culturally diverse world.

The next HERO DAY will be on: Feb 21, 2018. For more information please visit
Student Services.
Remember, there is more people like you, talk, open yourself up, you won’t regret it!
