Employee Appreciation Event 2021

Keep an eye out for more information about the upcoming Employee Appreciation Event in May 2023

DEF celebrated all 9-R staff during an Employee Appreciation Barbecue on October 14, 2021 at the DHS Front Lawn. The Rotary Club of Durango partnered with DEF as volunteers to barbecue hamburgers and hotdogs; and the DHS Prostart Culinary Class with their teacher, Joe Burns, showcased their skills by providing all the sides and desserts for the event. This event is to recognize our staff who work hard day in and day out to ensure our students receive the best service. We want to thank our staff, and this is one way we show our appreciation.
