Monday, April 28, will be the final Zaxby's Night of the year for the Daniel Foundation. Come out to the Zaxby's in Clemson from 5:00 until 8:00 PM and enjoy some great chicken while helping out a worthy cause.
The Foundation will receive a portion of the proceeds throughout the evening. Dine-in, carry-out, and drive-through all count, so feel free to take home a great meal. The Daniel Foundation works to support the academic programs at our school.
The D.W.D. Environmental Club has been working on several projects this year that are designed to promote a healthy and safe environment. The club, sponsored by Daniel teacher Chuck Conrad, has received two monetary grants to fund their activities this year.
The club is currently nearing completion of a Carolina Fence Garden in the median adjacent to the school's car rider loop. The garden uses split-rail cedar fencing and native South Carolina plants to add beauty to the new campus. Funds for the project were provided by a grant from the Pickens County Extension Service and Palmetto Pride.
Another project for the club this year has been an effort to improve local air quality by limiting the idling of cars while they wait in the pick-up lane. Signs have been posted in traffice lanes and brochures have been distributed to make parents aware of this situation. In addition, the club is participating in a DHEC study collecting data on air pollution.
Finally, the club has taken on the leadership of the school's recycling program. Over 12,000 pounds of material have already been recycled at the new school. All of us would like to thank the Environmental Club for all of the hard work that they have done on behalf of our area.

A group of students from Daniel recently competed in the annual Biology Merit Exam at Clemson Univeristy and came away with almost all of the top awards. In Division III, for those students in a second-year biology class, Paul Greenstein, Devin Lehmacher, and Aditya Aswami swept the first three spots. In Division II, for those students in Biology I, Spencer Temples and Kevis Tsao took the top two awards.
In addition, a handful of Daniel students received Honorable Mention awards. These were Logan McCallum, Julia Beck, Andrew Nielsen, Rachel Peters, Bailey Meehan, Omri Bein, and Charlie Dove.
Congratulations to all these students and a big thanks to teacher Ginger Allen who sponsored the group and accompanied them to the competition. Great job guys!
Daniel High School will be holding its Fourth Annual “Daniel Arts May Show”, a fundraiser for the Fine Arts Department, on Thursday, May 1st from 6:30 – 8:30 PM at Daniel High. The event will showcase the amazing artistic and musical talents of our students and will be an enjoyable evening for everyone.
In addition to an impressive visual art exhibition with awards, the show will feature live performances by the Daniel Jazz and Concert Band, the Daniel Choir and Strings Ensembles and a special Daniel Glee Club Performance. Make plans now to come out and support the arts programs here at Daniel High.
A spaghetti dinner that includes garlic bread, salad, drink, and dessert is included in the ticket price. Tickets are on sale now. Please see any fine arts teacher for further details.
Plans are now being made for a student-faculty basketball game to take place in the afternoon of Award's Day. This will be May 16 this year. The game will be played during 4th period. It will be a fund-raising event in which students can purchase tickets to get out of 4th period to watch the game.
Any students interested in playing must see Mr. Salina to sign up as soon as possible. The game will be co-ed, so both male and female students may participate. April 25th is a firm deadline, but the team may fill up fast.
Sorry, but members of the varsity and junior varsity basketball teams are not eligible. You're too good to play the faculty! Sign up today.
