Dear Gael Community,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! The Dublin High Parent Faculty Student Organization (PFSO) would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new and returning families.
It was so nice to meet some of you at the Gael Check-in and thank you everyone for supporting this event. The check-in process went smoothly thanks to the tremendous efforts of the School Administration, Staff, Students, PFSO and our AMAZING volunteers.
We are happy to share that PFSO’s registration donation goal for PFSO General Funds for this school year was $10,000 and we were able to collect over $13,000 (will have an extra amount for you soon). Parents thanks again, for your generous donations towards the PFSO and your Class.
PFSO is a nonprofit corporation recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS tax code, for your records, please note that the PFSO’s tax ID number is 94-3174460. Please do check with your company if they participate in a Corporate Matching Donation program.
Have a wonderful school year and we look forward to seeing you at school events and our PFSO monthly meetings. Our first meeting will be held on Monday, August 26, 2019.
On behalf of the students, parents, and faculty of Dublin High School, thank you for your continuous support! Go Gaels!!

Parking & Traffic
As you no doubt have experienced, we have some challenges in terms of both parking and traffic. Due to increased staff and construction, we have fewer student spots available. We apologize to those who were unable to get a parking pass this year. Please be reminded (and remind your student) to be cautious while driving. Carpooling, taking the bus, and arranging spots off campus help. As an FYI: traffic before 7:30 and after 4 is a lot more relaxed than times closer to the start or end of the day. We want to make sure that everyone is safe and thank you for helping.

Class of 2021
Please donate to the Class of 2021!
It takes a tremendous amount of money to support the next 2 years of class events. We thought it would be a good idea to recap where the money is goes….
Junior Prom. $51,000
Senior Ball. $65,000
Senior Banquet. $40,000
Grad Night. $90,000-$150,000 depending on attendance.
These are all approximations of course…but accurate based on what we know today.
As parent reps we fundraise, but we are not meeting our goals and need your help! Your contributions are a significant part of our fundraising budget each year and we rely on these contributions to make event tickets affordable to all. Last year at registration, our class received $500 in donations. We have 806 students in our class. LET THAT SINK.
To those who have made donations and support the class of 2021 THANK YOU!

Suggested Donation $125.00

DAILY BULLETIN: The Daily Bulletin link has been added to the Dublin High School website (www.dublin.k12.ca.us/dhs). This is a great tool to use when your student has missed school and needs to know what is happening on campus OR for you parents who want to stay in "the know." The Daily Bulletin is the morning announcement which reminds students of important deadlines, club meetings, and events that are coming up. You can find the link on the front page, right side of the Dublin High School website (see picture)..
Thank you to all the parents, faculty, students and staff who worked so hard to ensure Homecoming 2018 was a HUGE success. It was a great week to be a Gael. Please enjoy this slideshow of images from the various events. Thank you to Heather Whiting for capturing these amazing pictures.
