This year we are celebrating our 25th anniversary!  Our yearly Dollar a Day campaign is in full swing and we need your help.

 

Did you know that if each student/family at DVMS contributed at least $25 in honor of the 25 year anniversary, we would have over $15,000 in additional funding for technology, special programs and/or projects like improving the campus grounds?  Right now, 35% of families have donated to our Dollar a Day and Academic Boosters funds.  Unfortunately, without a higher level of participation we will need to cut programs that we have traditionally funded for DVMS such as two math classes that have afforded us the opportunity to reduce class size for 7th and 8th grade.

 

We are making our final push for fundraising through October 6th in order to finalize the 2017-2018 programs that the PFC will be able to support.  We suggest $180 for Dollar a Day and $75 for Academic Boosters but ANY amount is very much appreciated.

 

We want to thank all of those families who have already donated towards our campaign and ask those who have not had a chance to donate to consider doing so.  Donate today and help celebrate 25 years of DVMS!

Academic Boosters PayPal link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=8Z7EQ89YAT894

We are making our final push for fundraising through September 30th in order to finalize the 2017-2018 programs that the PFC will be able to support. Right now, 38% of families have donated to our Dollar a Day and Academic Boosters funds. Unfortunately, without a higher level of participation we will need to cut programs that we have traditionally funded for DVMS. Our goal is to get 100% participation from DVMS families for whatever amount they are able to contribute. We suggest $180 for Dollar a Day and $75 for Academic Boosters but ANY amount is very much appreciated. Each dollar given will go toward meeting our goal of increased percentage of family participation.

The DVMS PFC is a 501(c)3 non-profit education organization (federal tax ID #68-0304947). Many employers offer an employee donation-matching program, which could double your contribution to the Dollar A Day fund. Please contact your human resources department to determine if your employer participates and obtain any necessary forms required to request the gift.
Donations can be made at https://dvms-mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com/ or turned into the office with checks payable to DVMS PFC.

The DVMS PFC is hosting a special presentation with guest speaker Richie Contartesi on Wednesday October 11 at 7 p.m. at DVMS. Motivational speaker and former professional football player, Richie Contartesi, will be give a special nighttime presentation to parents and students to tell his story of how he fell into a depression and almost took his own life.  As suicide and depression are on the rise among teens today, learning more about what might lead a teen to suicide, and how to help others, may help prevent further tragedies.  

Instead of pounding his audiences with facts and bullet points, Richie shares his personal story of how he was diagnosed with ADHD, dyslexia, his parents divorced, he failed the 5th grade, and was no longer allowed to do the only thing he loved to do, play football.  So what is the solution?  Richie knows the biggest impact is always made after an audience is fully engaged with emotion, so Richie shares the adversity and struggles that he faced when the odds were stacked against him to help teens overcome their own challenges in life whether they are depression/suicide, bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, or other issues. 

By the end of the night, parents and students will learn...

  • How to recognize the signs of suicide in yourself and your peers
  • What to do when you are having the thoughts and depression
  • What to do when someone else is having the thoughts
  • Signs that someone else is feeling suicidal and what to do about 
For more information please see his webiste:  http://richiecontartesi.com/ or
