Notes from the Fox Den

The Crew is You
Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year!
DAC is excited about this year's journey. You've probably heard about the major building improvements that are in development. Throughout the school year, you'll hear about the building footprint and design and related changes that are in store for our indoor and outdoor space. One of those improvements—a new outdoor play area to go along with our new academic space—is a primary focus of fundraising efforts this year.
Fundraising is a tiny fraction of the work we need to do as a community. Each and every day, we need to work hard to elevate student learning. How do we do that? We get involved.
During registration, each family committed to performing at least 24 hours of service to the school. Throughout the school year, you'll receive communication—from crew parents, crew leaders, DAC, and administration—about how you can help. These efforts, both large and small, make a difference in the lives of our staff and students.
So lend a hand! Reach out to your crew parent to find out how you can help in the classroom. Make copies and stuff homework folders. Work with small groups in classrooms. Read to our emerging readers. Help out in a specials class. Drive a bus. Volunteer to chaperone fieldwork and crew trips. Help DAC plan and run an event. The possibilities are endless.

Get involved. Be crew.
