The DCIS Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is an organization of volunteers who are dedicated to supporting our school, students, staff and the DCIS community through cultural enrichment, family engagement, school beautification, staff appreciation and more.

Listed below are just some of the many ways in which the PTSA has provided support:

  • Produce the weekly DCIS Connect newsletter that goes to all families and staff and contains the most up-to-date information about goings-on at the school.
  • Raise money through various avenues to support cultural enrichment at the school via mini grants to staff and students for things such as speakers/presentations, field trips, and fairs/festivals.
  • Host the annual Taco Night the first Friday after school starts, which is a wonderful opportunity for staff, students and families to meet and mingle. Plus … FREE tacos!
  • Host staff appreciation meals near the end of each semester, with parents providing a variety of food and drinks and helping with setup and cleanup.
  • Created cultural corridors at DCIS by deeming each hallway a geographic region and decorating them with related photos, posters, flags and other artwork.
  • Created the About DCIS display and photo collages at the east entrance.
  • Organized field trips and transportation for families to attend the Dia de los Muertos celebration at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
  • And much more! 

Being involved with the PTSA not only supports our students and school, but it can also help you as a parent or guardian feel more connected to our school family. We’d love to include you on our ever-growing list of volunteers. Please let us know how you’d like to be involved by completing the Parent/Guardian Involvement form here.  Or, you can print a hard copy of the form here and turn in the completed form to any staff member in the school’s main office.

And be sure to check out the many volunteer opportunities on our Raise Your Hand page or sign up for opportunities here.

We love volunteers but understand that not everyone has the time to lend a hand … and that some of you would prefer to donate financially either instead of or in addition to volunteering. We welcome all donations, whether one-time, monthly or other. Click or tap the Fundraising/Donations link in the blue box to learn about the various ways to contribute financially.

Also, you don’t have to be a member of the PTSA to be involved, but we hope you’ll decide to join. The membership fee is nominal (just 3 cents per day), and the benefits are many. Click or tap the link in the blue box to learn more.

We look forward to connecting with you!
