Welcome to the 2016/17 School Year!

The school year is off to a busy start. The school construction seems to be winding down and the activities winding up!

We have our first home football game against Tatnall this
Friday, Sept 9th. Come out and cheer on our Rams! We could also use some volunteers to help man the food concession booth. Please stop by and give an hour or so.

There are also many volunteering opportunities listed on our SignUp Genius. Take a look and see how you can join in on the fun and earn money!

DSA Meetings — This year we have had to move our monthly meetings to the THIRD of the month due to conflicts. Our first DSA meeting will be on Tuesday, September 20th at 7pm in the Library. If you won a raffle prize at the New Student Picnic, please stop by and pick it up. If you can’t make the meeting, please let me know and we can arrange for another time to get your prize to you.

Below is a list of upcoming DSA meetings:

Lots of volunteers needed for our fall events!

A big thank you to Ms. Short, Ms. Turner, and the Dickinson cheerleaders for volunteering for UD football concessions tonight! We need LOTS more volunteers this fall — at UD and JDHS — sign your group up and start earning!

The DSA’s major fundraiser is concession sales. We rely on parent and student volunteers to staff the concessions stands at all events held on the school campus. There are also opportunities to volunteer in concessions at  University of Delaware home games.

Volunteer hours are credited to the sports team or club of your choice.

Visit SignUp Genius for 24/7 access to upcoming volunteer opportunities.
