Upcoming PTA Meeting

Dance Chaperones and Refreshments NEEDED!

DHS Dance Friday February 23 

Click here to sign up:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b44a4a92ba13-dhs22318/145692

The Student Government of DHS has asked the PTA to assist in providing refreshments for the "Luau-Out" Dance, which will be on Friday, February 23rd 8-11pm.  Please sign-up for requested items.  They have asked that all donations be delivered to the new gym (north gym) after school 3:30-5:00pm, as they will be decorating for the dance then.  

 

They are also still looking for chaperones for the dance.  Administration has created a new policy, and there must be 20 chaperones in order for the dance to occur.  I've made 1.5 hour shifts, so am hoping this smaller time commitment will help in getting these volunteer slots filled!  Make it a date night, and come hang out with other DHS parents. ;)
