Parent Council Meeting – Feb 5

Parent Council Meeting on Tuesday, February 5th, 2019 from 5:30-7pm in the HS English Room

Parent Council is Desert Marigold’s parent-teacher organization and meets monthly to support our students’ educational experience, our teachers and the school as a whole. The vitality of Parent Council depends on you, together we can do so much! Our success depends on a sufficient number of parents who are willing and able to contribute their energy and leadership to do this important work. Please join us!

Senior Project Presentations – Feb 6 & 7

Dear DMS Community,
Every year, based on their interests, each senior undertakes an independent research project that culminates in a presentation. Seniors strengthen skills that last a lifetime—including the ability to think for themselves and work on their own.
Please mark your calendars for next week on February 6th and 7th to come watch this year’s Senior Projects. They are being held at 6:30 pm, in Parzival Hall (the Eurythmy Room.)
The seniors have been working diligently to prepare for this event, and welcome your support.
Hope to see you there!

PC Call for Support

Hello beloved DMS community,

The S’mores and Bonfire Winter Community Social will not be taking place this Friday, 1/25 as originally scheduled. We would like to reschedule for a Friday night in February, but need the community’s help. The Parent Council leadership team is down to 4 members and no one to organize the remaining planned social events.

The DMS Parent Council exists to develop strong social bonds by supporting parent education, school activities, active volunteerism, celebrations and special events: thereby building a vibrant community.

Without immediate support, there will be no further Parent Council sponsored events. This includes the S’mores Bonfire, Spring Picnic and Online Auction & Raffle.

Without parents, there is no Parent Council.

If you are able to help on any level for the remaining school year or next, please reach out to me directly or via email at parent-council@desertmarigold.org.

On a positive note, we came together as a community under the direction of Parent Council Winter Faire Coordinator, Pam Zimmerman-Hopkins to raise a net profit of $7,443!!! We will be voting on how to allocate these and all the funds raised this year at the May PC meeting.

Thank you to everyone for making Winter Faire 2018 so magical!!

With great gratitude,

Laura Slayton-Garcia
DMS Parent Council Chair
