Back To School Checklist
Hard to believe we are already talking about Back To School! To make the transition and keep us all organized we created a Back To School Checklist including items like creating or updating your MySchoolAnywhere account, signing up to receive the Dolphin Digest, and completing a volunteer form if you plan to visit in school at all this year.
PTA Membership and Family Membership is going on now
The DFS PTA sponsors many programs to enrich your child’s curriculum throughout the year. We are able to do so only with your support and we encourage all of our parents and teachers to join the DFS PTA! Click here for more information and how to join.
While your there, please consider the DFS Family Fundraiser. This is an annual appeal that is our PTA’s primary fundraiser for Daniels Farm School. Parents do not have to worry about trying to sell gift wrap, chocolates or other items throughout the year and 100% of the profit goes directly to DFS!
