Welcome 2019 – 2020

Posted Posted in Announcements

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the PTSA Board, it is with great excitement and privilege that I welcome you to a new year at DASH. The PTSA’s mission is to have a positive impact on students’ educational and cultural experiences at DASH, and as you will find in the attached, we do this in a variety of ways – most importantly – with your collective support. High on our priority of deliverables is the sharing of key information with parents to help them and their children navigate the ‘twists and turns’ of high school – particularly a high-performance magnet high school with a national reputation for excellence. Outside of the unmatched quality of our teachers and administrators (recently earning the distinction of “Principal of the Year”), this is what separates DASH from the rest: This type of success truly “takes a village” and like any accomplished organization, the PTSA is only as strong as its membership – please consider joining us today. We are taking a very innovative and passionate approach to funding and programing this year and I challenge each of you to think about how you can contribute to your school, as you review the attached materials.

Once again, welcome and please do not hesitate to contact our board members or myself for any reason.

Sunil Ishairzay, President, DASH PTSA


Coffee With a Cop 2018

Your PTSA members not only meet to discuss how to enhance your student’s experience at the school, but we also meet with various members of the community to discuss matters very important to our children as members of the community at large.

October 3rd was “Coffee with a Cop” day. Various members of the community came together to discuss matters which they wanted to discuss with the police present. Our parent member discussed security with the officers and discussed how best to prevent crime and stay safe both in and out of school.

DASH PTSA members visit Miami Dade College MAGIC center

Posted Posted in Announcements

DASH PTSA members Sunil and Sema were warmly received at a recent visit to Miami-Dade College. Our Board has been noticing that some of our equipment for our students is outdated and we were lucky enough to be able to see what the college is using and get some great ideas to bring back to school.

PTSA members were able to tour the MAGIC division, which is MDC’s animation design and game development area. In addition, the tour included the Fashion division, an EnTec – CIS Technology & Programming presentation and a tour of the Architecture and Interior Design division. We are so excited to be able to be exploring opportunities that our own local MDC has to offer to DASH students.
