HELP DCES set a STACK UP world record!

For the last 5 years DCES participate in the World STACK UP competition.  Along with the cup stacking we will participate in a food drive for Hunger2Hope, which helps feed local familes whose kids attend DeSoto County Schools.

Starting Nov.14-Nov.17

Students will receive 1 entry ticket for each food item brought in and 2 tickets for items 6 and above.  These tickets will put you in a drawing for 3 great prizes.
