The school perpetually runs low on copy paper, and given that a case can run around $40, those costs can quickly add up. In at least the past three years, Staples has run a Black Friday sale on copy paper where you pay the full price up front, then submit the rebate (super easy to do online). The net cost of the paper is $10/case, and you get your rebate in the form of a Visa card.
We won’t know until the wee hours of Black Friday whether they’re still running the sale (or whether you can order online and have the paper shipped to the school), but we’ll send out a push notification via the app as soon as we can to let you know whether the sale is on and whether an online option is available.
If 50 people each donated a case of paper, that would go a long way toward greatly helping the school. Stay tuned via the app for details!

The DCIS CSC is looking for two parents to serve on the committee for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years. The CSC is composed of parent, staff and student representatives who work on the school improvement plan, evaluate school data, provide strategic direction for DCIS, and provide guidance on and evaluation of the school budget. Meetings take place monthly, and representatives serve two-year terms. Parents of students at all grade levels are welcome!
Please send an email by Thursday, Sept. 13, to parent member Jennifer Gentry with your name, email and a description of your interest in being part of the CSC.
