PTSA Family Connect Contest


 The PTSA is all about engagement this year. We have lots of ideas for how we can support the DCIS community, but we’re more interested in connecting with parents, students and staff to hear your ideas and provide opportunities for involvement for those who are interested. So …

We’re launching a two-week contest to see which advisement class can bring in the highest percentage of parent/guardian involvement forms. The prizes? A gourmet breakfast buffet for the winning middle school and high school classes and a $50 gift card for their advisement teachers. We are also encouraging students and staff to join in and let the PTSA know how they would like to be involved.

Paper forms went home with students on Monday, Nov. 9. But if you’d rather complete your involvement form online, please click on the applicable link below to go directly to that form. PTSA membership is absolutely not required, but if you’d like to join, a membership payment link will appear after you submit your form (or you can access the link directly below). The deadline for this contest is Friday, November 20, at 3 p.m. Please contact Terri Porter at with any questions.
