Your Loose Change Makes A Difference
Our Middle School Student Council is holding a coin drive to help raise money and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our drive runs from Tuesday, January 22 to Friday, January 25. If we raise at least $1,500 the class that collects the most money will get a pizza party thrown by Student Council. You can also click here to donate. This short video will help your student understand the importance of this effort.

Introducing My School Bucks
We have transitioned to a new payment processing system for things such as school fees, field trips, after-school activities, athletics, lunch beverage cards, and more. My School Bucks is the system DCSD uses, so if you have a child in a neighborhood school you may already have an account, but you will need to add your PCK student. If you do not have an account, you will need to set one up. Click here for instructions on how to set up your My School Bucks account.
