Saturday's ELEVATE-DAS & Parent University Event

by Jessica Lykon -

Dear DAS Families,

We will be hosting a zoom webinar this Saturday, September 9th, to go over our ELEVATE-DAS program and hold a Parent University Event. Please see the details below.

ELEVATE-DAS Program – All Grades K - 8

During this webinar, we will discuss the variety of extracurricular activities available this school year. We will go over Athletics, Academic Competitions, and other clubs. This is a great chance to explore activities that may interest your child and complement their growth. We will also touch on how to get involved as a parent volunteer.

Parent University Event – Grades 5 - 8

Following the ELEVATE-DAS presentation, we invite families with children in 5th to 8th grades to join us for our Parent University Event at 11:00 am. This segment will provide valuable insights into middle school course tracks, effective strategies to support your child during these crucial years, and a detailed walkthrough of our online platforms.

We understand that weekends can be busy, and you may not be able to attend the webinars in real-time. Both sessions will be recorded and shared with you for later viewing.

We hope to see you at either of the events to maximize the benefits of what our school has to offer. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
