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.
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 Our Board has been noticing that some of our equipment for our students is outdated and we were lucky enough to be able to see what the college is using and get some great ideas to bring back to school.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.
THE DASH OPEN HOUSE WAS A GREAT SUCCESS FOR ALL!
Your PTSA is happy to report that 90 percent of families were able to attend the Open House held for parents at school last week. We all know how hard it is to come from all different parts of the county and beyond, but, then again, we know we have a smart group of parents who know how important it is to be involved in our children’s school. Why else would you have picked the greatest school for your child?
What a great segue to include a “gentle” reminder to join the PTSA and help us to offer your children the best education and high school experience possible! We are here to offer our collective talents and brainstorming, but without your participation both financially and physically we won’t be the best we can be. If you haven’t yet joined, here is the link.
Our teachers were awesome in their speed-dating style of trying to impart as much information about their class to the parents as possible in their allotted time. We know it wasn’t easy to do and appreciate the concise way they were able to impart so much in so little time!
It was fun to be able to put a face to the names which have already become familiar to us as parents!
Our school store did a great job of getting the sought-after DASH merchandise to our eager customer base. Please watch for new and exciting items to be available as the school year progresses.
We hope many of you were able to enjoy the beautiful pasta dinner put together for you by our hard-working hospitality arm of the PTSA. We know many folks come from work and we wanted to make sure you had a place to get something to eat.
