Other Annual Fundraisers


DLS is teaming up with EduKits for the 2011-2012 school year. EduKits offers the ease of one stop shopping for all of your School Supply needs. Place your order between April 15th and July 20th, and your child's order will be received in a nice bundle to your child's teacher before the first day of school. No need to run from store to store, stand in line or to load your child down with more items then he/she can carry. Plus, a portion of all sales will be returned to DLS and what better way to support your school then through purchasing your child's supplies from EduKits. All EduKit orders will be placed online through EduKits website and delivered to directly to your child's teacher.

Original Works

DLS students created amazing self portraits under the guidance of our talented art teacher Ms. B. Turn these portraits into mugs, t-shirts, keychains, and notecards and raise much needed funds for the school. Enjoy it at home and work, or give it as a gift!  It's a great way to recognize your child's creativity and support the PTO at the same time.
