Please sigh up for the Orlando trip remind101  

Text to the number 81010   with the message @dhsfin 

This remind101 will only be used to remind everyone that trip payments are coming up/due and on the trip to deliver information about meeting places and busing. 

There will be a brief manditory meeting during open house in the auditorium at 6pm to discuss details and hand out forms. A parent/guardian must be present at the meeting, not just the student. An important letter can be found in the files tab above


Tiffany Riggs- Colorguard Instructor/Choreographer

I was born in Morehead City, NC and grew up right on the water. In 1995, I moved to Swansboro, NC. I marched with the Swansboro Marching Band for 4 years as colorguard and graduated in 2004. In 2005 I met the love of my life, my son, born in Shreveport,LA. I graduated from the Cheveux School of Hair Design in 2008 as a Cosmetologist. In 2010, my little boy was diagnosed with autism and it changed our lives forever. I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I completed in early childhood education in 2013 with a certification in exceptional children and now i work as a preschool teacher specializing in preschool aged children with mental and physical disablilites. I love music and have been playing for the majority of my life. Colorguard is a passion for me. The idea of creating visual effects using weapons, flags, props, and dance is so intriguing. Colorguard challenges your mind and body and creates emotions like nothing else.

Breathe in the music, breathe out the performance

Parent Volunteers/(Bus Chaperones- Must be finger Printed)

I can't chaperone or help in pit... What else can I do??? 

We need your help with several things in the band program. If you are unable to help out by chaperoning or in pit crew, I would like to ask your help on a few items. We need the following items to keep the band running successfully. The cost of field striping paint can add up after a while, especially after a raing day. One case of 6 cans will cost 24.98 at homedepot. Anyone willing to donate a case or even donating one can, will help us out tremendously. 

I encourage everyone to attend our home football games, competitions, and concerts. I cant begin to tell you how important it is to show support for the arts program and the students involved. Nothing is better than having parental support in the stands. As being a high school student (years ago) it was always nice to hear my name being shouted from the stands and occassionally embarrassed. The band and cheerleaders ARE the number one fans in the stands and we need our number one parents supporting them. Please dont hesitate to email me if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to help out in anyway I can.
