When Life Hands You Lemons . . .
To no one's surprise, there will not be a DHHS Auction this year.
However, the DHHS PTO is dedicated to making lemonade out of the lemons we've all been handed. The GREAT news is that anyone can donate DIRECTLY to our school's Enrichment Fund and 100% of the money donated will go to fulfill teacher requests for classroom needs and projects.
This past semester alone, the PTO has distributed over $6,000 to DHHS teachers for such classroom needs as:
Electronic equipment for remote instruction (webcams, microphones, ring lights, media carts, etc.)
School-wide digital tools for design and organization of class content
Lab kits for science classes
Subscriptions to online learning platforms and enrichment games for the Math, Science, World Languages, Social Studies, and Food Sciences Departments
Support for the Board Game Club's purchase of games
Support for the School Nurse to send immunization reminder postcards to students
Support in securing PPE and hand sanitizer for the entire school
Your generous donations will allow the PTO to continue meeting our amazing teachers' needs and creative ideas to keep online instruction fresh and engaging for our students.
We are also planning to continue supporting our school administration's preparations for a return to a safe face-to-face instructional environment, whenever that happens.
This school year, more than ever, THANK YOU for your support of our faculty and staff!
Please consider making a donation of any size. Your generosity makes a huge impact in our school's ability to remain excellent!
