Through the generous sponsorship of TrueVoice Studios, the DCIS PTSA is excited to offer this FREE screening of the film, SCREENAGERS on Friday, February 23rd at 6:3o pm. The movie SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance. We encourage parents to bring their kids and use this opportunity to launch conversations related to the digital device usage of everyone in your family. Spanish subtitles will be provided.

School of Choice is Now Open!
Families, this year the School of Choice application will only be online. What you will need to do is:
- Create an account on the School of Choice system or use your existing parent portal log-in (Google Chrome or Firefox browsers are recommended)
- Verify all the information entered is correct
- If your parent portal login is used, it should auto populate most of the information and link your students currently in a DPS school
- You will be able to submit more than one application with a single log-in
- You can rank up to five schools on your application
- The applications can be submitted any time between February 1 and February 28 at 4pm
- Please remember that the system will close exactly at 4 pm on February 28 and that no applications will be accepted after that.
We are excited to be using the new system and we are here to support you as much as possible. The applications are mobile friendly, so you can submit your application from the convenience of your phone. Also, the DCIS main office will have Chrome books available to use if any questions arise.
Now follow this link and start your School of Choice process https://dps.schoolmint.net/signin.
PLEASE NOTE: If your student already attends DCIS in the 8th Grade and would like to return for high school, you still need to submit a choice form listing DCIS as your top choice.

DCIS staff and students…representing the school so well at the Regional School Expos this week!
Every student who wants to apply for a DCIS Foundation scholarship for travel through this fall MUST attend one of the application preparation orientation meetings THIS WEEK and participate in interviews, which will take place in early February. For the first time, one of the meetings is being held in the evening to make it easier for parents to attend as well (parent attendance isn’t required but is welcome). There will be another orientation meeting in the fall for students traveling later this year who wish to apply for a scholarship then.
The remaining application preparation orientation dates this week for DCIS students are:
- Thursday, Jan. 18, 12:30-1:30 pm, DCIS Community Room (103)
- Thursday, Jan. 18, 5:30-6:30 pm, MUN Room*
