For the first time in several years, the presence of a Student Council Association, led by President Isabel Oliva and Vice President Brock Stephenson, has returned to the DCS campus. Its mission is to build leaders within our school community and ultimately, instill a sense of pride and responsibility in our identity as Crusaders. In the few months since its commencement, Student Council has organized the Homecoming Week festivities, hosted various fundraisers, and introduced 7 new clubs during Wednesday's mini fair, including: 

  • Cooking Club
  • Engineering & Robotics Club
  • Key Club
  • Oceanography Club
  • Travel Club
  • Mentor Club, and 
  • The Cru Pep Club

From an athletic and fine arts standpoint, there has never been a shortage of co-curricular and extracurricular activities at DCS; however, the student body's overwhelming response toward these new clubs was exciting to behold.

 "Our goal, beginning in January, is to add activities that will encourage student involvement, promote unity, and facilitate community outreach opportunities," said Isabel. One of the ways in which Student Council plans to achieve those goals is through the organization of a Spiritual Emphasis week.

We look forward to seeing how these clubs progress, and how the Student Council members will continue to pave the way for future leaders. 


Student Council is comprised of elected members from each high school grade level (President & Vice President):
12th grade: Jesse Cabauy & Andy Marquez
11th grade: Missy Cruz-Bustamante
10th grade: Juliet Hassan & Amanda Acevedo
9th grade: Sarah Hassan & Samantha Gonzalez

Elections for the 2016-2017 school year will be held in the Spring. To learn how you can get involved, please contact the Student Council Head Sponsor, Rhonda McNeal, at 305-827-8700 or
