Enrichment Fund

 

The DHHS Enrichment Fund – along with your PTO membership dues, Auction proceeds, and other fundraising efforts -- helps support activities and items which benefit students, teachers, and the school at large. For instance:

  • Enabling the Counseling Office to provide school supplies to students in need

  • Funding teacher treats and celebrations to show our educators we LOVE them, not only during our traditional Teacher Appreciation Week, but throughout the year

 

  • Endowing a modest Principal’s Fund that enables Mr. Joyner to meet special needs as they arise without having to ask the County for help

 

  • Recognizing and rewarding the Teacher of the Year

 

  • Supplementing parent donations of food and supplies for hospitality needs at the school’s many events and gatherings

 

  • Funding teacher grant requests for supplies, software, equipment, books, subscriptions, field trip travel, etc. Teacher grants are, in fact, the largest budget item by far. The PTO’s goal with these grants is to support teachers’ ability to function, to teach, to engage, and to help their students achieve.

  • Supplementing personal protective equipment (PPE) for faculty and staff and the schoolhouse in general during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the 2020-2021 schoolyear alone, the PTO distributed over $10,000 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

The PTO has established three levels of sponsorship for the Fund: 

BRONZE $75
