Due to overwhelming requests from parents and students who did not purchase a 2021-2022 yearbook, I reached out to the publisher to inquire about an additional express print run for our school. In order for the publisher to print our book, we need a minimum order of 75 copies. Due to the lower number of copies and production costs of printing the yearbook, there is an increased price per copy for this express run compared to the book sold during the school year. We cannot tell the publisher to start this extra run of our yearbook until we have 75 paid copies*.
Late yearbooks may be purchased for $130 through the webstore only https://dublingaelswebstore.myschoolcentral.com/asbworks/apps/webstore/pages/Product.aspx?org=14971&pid=20632. The webstore will be accepting sales until Friday 6/17. Books will arrive 4-6 weeks after we place our order and will be available for pick up at DHS the first week of August. More info will be shared as we get closer to that date.
*If we do not reach the minimum number of copies, we will refund all those who paid for a late copy when the Student Activities office reopens in August for the 2022-2023 school years.

PFSO President's End-of-Year Letter
Dear DHS Community,
As the School year comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of people who have made this year such a huge success.
Thank you to the PFSO Executive Board, Class Parent Representatives, Chairpersons, Club Advisors, Administration, Faculty, Staff, Custodial Team, Parents, and most of all to our amazing students.
A special shout out to our fabulous Class of 2022 Parent Representatives: Rosemary Gray, Ruth Cunniffe, Juanita Sheppard, Melissa Weakland, Wendy DeMello and Kimberly Mehr for all their dedication to helping out whenever and wherever they were needed. Please accept my sincere thanks for all you have done over the years!.
It was so nice to see everyone in person this school year, and together we accomplished so much. We successfully held our three main PFSO fundraisers: Fireworks, Registration, and Raise Your Class Gaela. Our Class Parents ran many smaller fundraisers to raise money for their senior year activities, and our two clubs (Chess & Robotics) participated at numerous competitions and won many awards. We were able to update our Bylaws, switch to QuickBooks and our Audit Committee is diligently working with our Treasurers to complete our very first in house audit. The PFSO sponsored FMP lunch, Prep2Pass, Welcome Back Grab-N-Go Snack Bar, and Staff Appreciation Luncheon. We donated to Valley High School, Dubversity, Pink Shirt - Breast Cancer Awareness, and funded a senior-level Biomedical Academy class - “Biomedical Innovations”. We paid for Academic Block D Awards and Honor Pins, Library books, and Senior Awards Night decorations. Together with the school, we also funded the live streaming of the graduation ceremony, and we gave out eleven Senior Scholarships. With the District’s help we were able to purchase a spacious steel container for PFSO storage.
To the families who are moving on to new locations, new districts and to our amazing graduating Class of 2022, we wish you happy and healthy new beginnings. You will be missed! It was such an honor for me to be your PFSO President this school year. Thank you, Gaels, for all your support! I would like to wish you all a happy, healthy, and safe summer. See you next year!

Thank You Class of 2022 Parent Representatives
We would like to take this opportunity to appreciate all our amazing Senior Class Parent Representatives for doing an outstanding job over the past 4 years. Thank you Rosemary Gray, Ruth Cunniffe, Melissa Weakland and Juanita Sheppard (not pictured here) for all your hard work, time and energy. In addition, we would like to acknowledge Wendy DeMello and Kimberly Mehr for also having served as Class Parents. We would also like to thank the many parent volunteers from the Class of 2022, who helped with various senior events and activities. We wish the Class of 2022 all the best in their next steps in life!
Thank You Outgoing PFSO Board Members and Chairs
A huge thank you to Ellen Ladoucer for being an amazing volunteer. Ellen served on the PFSO board as a Co-Treasurer for two years and Co-Secretary for one year. Ellen has also been successfully chairing our Fireworks booth fundraiser for the last three years, and volunteered for numerous PFSO events. We wish Ellen and her 2022 Graduate the very best.
A special shout out to Shalini Suravarjjala, PFSO Gael Force Robotics Club Parent Advisor. Gael Force Robotics was the first club to join the PFSO family. Shalini has been working hard for our students for the last 2 years. Shalini with the help of other volunteers was able to take our robotics club to the World Championships in Dallas last month. Best wishes for her and her 2022 Graduate.
PFSO would also like to thank the following PFSO board members/chairs for the hard work and continuous support throughout the years. Happy to say most of these amazing volunteers will still be part of our PFSO Community.

$24 on the 24th for '24!
We are the Class of 2024 and wanted to ask for $24 each month on the 24th! Of course you can always donate more:) We want to make fundraising easy and give our students hope for the future! This will be an ongoing fundraiser to help build our funds to cover the cost of Junior and Senior Year activities such as Proms, Grad Night, and other fun events not paid for by the school. Senior Ball, Senior Awards Banquet, baccalaureate just to name a few, are paid for through fundraising efforts and ticket sales to each event. The school does not pay for any of these events. We are choosing creative ways and outside the box thinking to bring you fundraising opportunities! The more we fundraise, the less we have to charge for tickets to the above mentioned events. We thank you in advance for your time and generosity! Donate here. See flyer here .
