Support DSHA

Volunteer

VOLUNTEERS ARE SO VERY IMPORTANT, BUT 2020-21 IS LOOKING VERY DIFFERENT FOR ALL OF US!

Under normal conditions volunteers are an essential part of many activities at DSHA. From stuffing envelopes to chaperoning dances, helping with the Auction or Parent Association - we could not do what we do without you! But the restrictions placed on us due to Covid-19 have limited our ability to have many people in our building. In order to keep our community healthy and lower risks we are reducing the number of volunteers and adjusting our traditional activities to meet city and state guidelines. Below is a list of opportunities we need help with currently AND a longer list of volunteer opportunities usually available to parents. Click on any that might be interesting to you to learn more and check back often for any changes.

CURRENT EVENT OPPORTUNITIES:

List of 21 items.

  • Annual Fund Phone-a-Thon Caller | November 2020

    Every fall, a group of DSHA parent volunteers call other parents to 1) see how their daughter is doing and 2) invite them to participate in the annual fund. As we support our daughters, each other, and our school through this tough time, these volunteers are more important than ever, and we need your help!
     
    All volunteer callers will receive training, scripts, and technology to make their calls from home on their own schedule. Calls begin the first week of November and wrap up before Thanksgiving.
