Dear Incoming & Current Members:
Welcome to the 2020-21 academic year – a school season which promises to be unlike any other. The Parent Teacher Student Association is a powerful ally in your student’s educational experience. This year we’re fortunate that your participation may be more convenient than ever — in light of new technologies like Zoom. We rely on your support in the form of memberships for our programs.
We acknowledge the unique struggles of this year for many families and we count on the connections between our members and educators to support us in the challenging year ahead.
If you have not joined PTSA or paid your membership dues, please do so as soon as possible, so we can get you into our new Memberhub communication system for vital school communication. Membership dues can be paid by sending a check of $10 per adult or student plus donations. There are two easy ways to join or renew.
- Join with this printable form (http://bit.ly/dptsa-2021). Mail or drop off at the school, with a check made out to “DASH PTSA.”
- Join now via the Memberhub Store – the easy online way to support PTSA.
WHAT’S AHEAD: We’re working to set a date for a PTSA general meeting (via zoom; watch this space). Let us know if you’d like to volunteer for the board! We always benefit from fresh new ideas!
P.S. To opt-in for email updates you can visit https://dash.memberhub.com/join/93amdz
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
YOUR PTSA IS HARD AT WORK ON AND OFF CAMPUS
FOR OUR STUDENTS
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.
