Recruiting Students for 2017-18
This month we are launching several initiatives for recruiting students for next year.  Our student organization has been working on a presentation that will be given in some local 8th grade classrooms. We are holding an Open House on November 10 and two Portfolio Workshops on December 7 & 14. The most important thing that everyone can do is to share about the Stagecraft & Design Department with neighbors, friends and colleagues. Encourage any students that are interested in Technical Theatre to apply! Here are some other ways that parents can help us in these efforts:

  1. Attend the Open House on November 10, from 3:30-5:30pm, and talk with prospective students/parents that attend.
  2. Help with transportation of students to and from our presentations in 8th grade classrooms (dates and times TBA).
  3. Volunteer to call families of prospective applicants to share about your experiences with the department and answer questions that parents have about DSA.

If you are able to help with any of the items above, please send an email to Jonathan Howard (  Thank you!

Parent Volunteers for DSA Preview Days

DSA is hosting five Preview Days for prospective students and their families.  One parent volunteer is needed for Stagecraft and Design from 7:20-9:30am each day to welcome families, give them small tours of the building, and share experiences of DSA. We found out this week the dates have changed, so the new dates below differ from previous messages:

The dates this year are:
#1-Thursday, November 3
#2-Monday, November 7
#3-Friday, November 11
#4-Monday, November 14 (we have a volunteer who is covering this date)
#5-Thursday, November 17

If you are interested in helping with one of these Preview days, please send an email to Jonathan Howard ( indicating what day(s) you are available of the four options where we need parent volunteers.  Thanks!

King Soopers Gift Cards
We really need your help!  A primary way to fundraise for Stagecraft & Design is by using a King Soopers gift card. You don’t need to make any additional donations or sell cookie dough or candy–just reload your card every time you shop at King Soopers. Five percent of your purchase is donated to our major. Help us meet our goal to get a donation of $250 from King Soopers every single month. It’s really easy–just get into the habit of loading your card. You can even reload them at the self-checkout lanes and use them to pay for gas, beer, or liquor at the stores that sell those items. Get cards for your kids, spouses, and even out-of-town relatives who shop at Kroger stores. If you need a new gift card or have any questions, please contact Dianna at: or 720-244-4467 (cell).
