Help Needed at PFSO Fireworks Booth!
Come out and help us fund the 2020 - 2021 school year activities! Sign up here.
Yes, it’s time for one of our largest fundraisers of the year! Volunteers are needed to staff our booth at Lowe's. Each class has its own day, but if you want to mix it up, we'll take when you have available. The City of Dublin approved a safety plan that requires all volunteers to wear masks, frequent sanitation of commonly used surfaces, and encourages pre-orders. One board member will be present every shift to be the Safety Officer/ Day Manager.
"Hey Everyone!!! The class of 2022 is doing some amazing fundraisers this summer. This is one. Our goal is to reach at least $2022 for the class. This is to pay for the next 2 years of activities for them. If we can't raise enough money, then the cost of all these activities won't be affordable for everyone. Please consider buying something to help support. It could be for your recent HS graduate and something for their dorm room, Father's Day, Christmas, Birthday gifts, you name it! Scentsy has laundry items, things for pets, and so much more. Every purchase small or big is appreciated. Thanks so much in advance. This fundraiser will go on for about 6 weeks so start shopping now and get it delivered to your doorstep.https://bringhome.scentsy.us/party/12378712/dublin-high-class-of-2022

Close Up Inauguration 2021 Trip
Dublin High School will be participating in the Close Up Washington DC Presidential Inauguration program during January 2021. Close Up is a nonpartisan and dynamic organization that runs a hands-on civic education program for students nationwide, supported in-part by Congress. The program consists of travel, learning, and fun, all packed into one amazing experience! For an entire week, students will explore monuments and memorials, discuss current issues, engage in debates, meet with members of Congress and make friends with students from across the country! Furthermore, students will witness one of the most exciting DC events, a presidential inauguration, which only takes place every 4 years in Washington. Participating students this year will miss four days of school while on program. Students will receive one half unit of Social Studies credit for participating in Close Up since it is a valuable educational experience.
If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer McCort firstname.lastname@example.org
