Stagecraft & Design Updates
Thank you for help with the Chicago Concessions
Thank you so much to all of our wonderful parents who donated concessions and especially to those who worked the concession stand during ‘Chicago’! This is by far our biggest fundraiser of the year and with fewer shows this year we were a little worried we might not make as much as past years but it was quite the opposite. Thanks to these awesome volunteers we were able to raise over $2,400.00! This money goes towards classroom activities and field trips and we are so grateful for our generous parents donations and time!

DSA Fill the Gap Fundraising Efforts
DSA is a unique school with unique needs! The actual cost of educating a DSA student with an extraordinary arts and academic education is beyond the funding that is provided by the district. In order to fully fund DSA’s nationally competitive arts and academics, we are faced with a gap. This year the gap is $1,500 per student.
With all DSA parents coming together to Fill the Gap with a monthly, unrestricted contribution, we will be able to provide quality educational programs in the arts and academics, capital improvements for DSA’s unique needs, increased security for DSA’s extended hours, and more. A school-wide culture of philanthropy is essential to the success of our students and fulfilling our mission…and together we will be stronger! Currently the Stagecraft & Design department only has a 39% participation rate in this important school-wide fundraising effort. Please take a few minutes to make a donation at whatever financial level fits your family budget.
Your monthly support of the Fill the Gap Campaign at a level that fits your budget will help us reach our goal of 100% participation and is 100% tax deductible.
