When your family joins the DCD community, as a parent, you automatically become part of our Parent Association.
From lectures and book groups, to social gatherings, to learning opportunities, to affinity spaces and DEI groups, and school-wide events, we have many opportunities for you to get involved with the DCD community and meet fellow DCD parents.
The PA’s charter is to build community among parents, coordinate and encourage parent involvement at DCD, and enhance communication between parents and school. One of the hallmarks of our school is the eagerness of our committed parents to get involved!
When parents volunteer at our events, it not only helps the school but also greatly enriches the children’s experience. They love sharing their school community with their families. And along the way, it gives our parents an opportunity to connect and get to know each other in their child’s grade as well as throughout our community.
We understand that life is busy and that the amount of time that parents are able to commit to volunteer activities varies from family to family. Whether you are available for one event or on an ongoing basis, we welcome and appreciate the time parents are able to give.
