Due to the changes in the state's assessment policies Doniphan-Trumbull 7th and 8th grade students will be taking NeSA tests during the month of April.
Science section of testing will be on Wednesday, April 5th and Thursday, April 6th.
Reading section of testing will be on Tuesday, April 11th and Wednesday, April 12th.
Math section of testing will be on Wednesday, April 26th and Thursday, April 27th.
It would really be beneficial prior to tests dates for students to get a good nights sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast.
Also, we would appreciate it if parents/guardians would NOT schedule appointments for these days. Thank you for your cooperation.
On Wednesday, March 22, 2017 the Junior High and High school teams traveled to Gibbon for the LouPlatte Conference Quiz Bowl Meet. Hosted this year by Gibbon, other teams participating came from Centura, Kearney Catholic, Loup City, Ord, Ravenna, St. Paul, and Wood River.
This was a double-elimination competition for the nine teams involved. The D-T junior high team consisted of Ethan Adams, Nick Baker, Blake Harrenstein, Sam Hoppe, Michelle Jungen, Carter Schultz, Brylee Shafer, Andrew Stock, Chris Uhrich, and Kiley Wright. The junior high gave their best effort, but came up a bit short, losing after two matches. Top two teams were Loup City and Ord for the junior high division.
The D-T high school team consisted of Jon Askey, Kate Askey, Zoey Ballard, Arianna Bonesteel, Ella Kissinger, Tom Pfeiffer, Carsyn Poppe, Trey Sterner, Ethan Wagner, and Carson Wiltfong. The first match went off without a hitch, defeating St. Paul. In the second match for the Cards, KCHS sent the team to the losers bracket to face Gibbon. After defeating Gibbon, D-T faced KCHS again and won sending them to the championship round. To become the champions, the Cardinals had to defeat an undefeated Ravenna twice and did so handily. The team was then crowned as the 2017 LouPlatte Conference champions.
This high school team has two championship crowns, ESU9 and LPC. Their final competition will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at the Nebraska Prairie Museum near Holdrege, NE starting at 1:00 p.m. Good luck Team!!!
