February 19th: Spring Conferences

Conferences will be hosted on February 19th from 4-7 pm. The format this year is designed to provide two options for families to talk to teachers and review student progress:

(1) 4-5 pm = Walk-ins – Families are invited to stop by teachers’ classrooms for informal conversations and general questions. If a teacher is engaged in a conversation, please feel free to take a seat in the hall for the next available walk-in. No prior scheduling is required.

(2) 5-7 pm = Scheduled appointments – Families requiring a more lengthy conversation are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a designated time slot. Times slots are estimated to be 20-minutes each. Please contact the advisement teacher to schedule an appointment.

February 13th: Chaperones, Donations Needed for High School Valentine’s Day Dance

Student Council is requesting volunteer chaperones for the Valentine’s Day Dance on Friday February 13, 2015. The dance will be held from 7pm-10pm. They need at least 3 chaperones each hour– so roughly 9 parent volunteers with the supervision of Theresa Mccorquodale, Michelle Wright, and Kimberly Rodriquez.

Student Council is also asking for donations of refreshments such as water, snacks, pizza, etc. If you can donate either your time or snacks, please contact Kimberly Rodriquez (kimberly_rodriquez@dpsk12.org). It would be a big help in the process of this fundraiser for prom!
