The Dolphin Pledge Drive Has Begun!

Please help us meet our goal of $20,000 so we can continue to implement the programs and supply the extra materials that enrich our students’ education and enhance our school environment. Find out more about the Dolphin Pledge Drive here.

Wow! Back to School Night was a huge Dolphin Pledge Drive success! We’ve gone from $850 raised to $5,500 raised! That’s an increase of 650%–which leaves us with only $14,500 to go to meet our goal of $20,000.

Here’s some more math: For every $25 you donate, you pay for one class with our PE teacher. For every $50 you donate, you pay for a teacher’s grant to spend on one student (and a raffle ticket for the Disney passes!). For every $100, you pay for art supplies for an entire class for an entire year. Everything you donate goes right back to our teachers and students. Your donations make our programs possible. Thank you so much.

Have Your Say!

The DSF is excited to launch Coffee Talk (with Linda Richman with the DSF) for the 2014-2015 school year! It’s an open meeting with no set agenda, in which the Dailard community can hang out casually, discuss what they’d like to see from the DSF and share their ideas for new programs, and hopefully make friends with each other, too! The inaugural meeting is Wednesday, September 17 at 7:50 AM in the Teachers’ Lounge; subsequent meetings (monthly) will meet on other days of the week at other times of day.

Cups will be provided, but bringing your own mug will be more fun. And we’ll talk! No big whoop.

All of our parent groups, in fact, invite you to attend their meetings, too. Find out what they are planning, how you can help, offer your input, and help support our school. Everyone is encouraged to attend. Upcoming meetings below:

Wednesday, October 1, 7:50 AM: Activities & Events Committee
First Wednesday of the month in the Teachers’ Lounge.

Tuesday, October 14, 5:30 PM: Dailard School Foundation Board Meeting
Second Tuesday of the month in the Teachers’ Lounge.

Wednesday, October 15, 7:00 PM: Dailard DADS (Dads Assisting Dailard Students)
Second Wednesday of the month, Emiliano’s Restaurant.

And 2014-2015 Begins!

The Dailard School Foundation–the DSF (formerly known as the PTF)–is excited to see you on campus for another great school year and has lots of fun planned for everyone. We’re happy to be back in session.

You can help out Dailard teachers right away by donating their requested items to your students’ classrooms. Find out what is needed for each grade here and when they are needed. Thank you so much for your generosity.
