Welcome from DVHS Education Fund

Dear Wildcat Families,

 

Welcome to a new school year and to our unique community of collaboration between parents, administrators, teachers and students.  Our high school is not only one of the top high schools in California but also ranked in the top 50 high schools in the United States!!

 

These accolades don’t just happen by themselves.  Not only is this tremendous success due to the extraordinary work by the administration, teachers, staff and students, but also the continued support of you, the DVHS community.  We have a long tradition within the Dougherty Valley of supporting our schools by donating to our school education funds.  This continued support at DVHS is one of the reasons that our school is continually recognized as one of the best.

 

The DVHS Education Fund has three main purposes:

•    Reduce Class Sizes:  First, we reduce core academic class sizes (english, math, science) for all grades by paying for additional class sections — more classes = less students in a classroom.

•    Classroom Supplies:  Second, we will, once again, cover the cost of all donated classroom supplies for every student.  To put it simply, you will not be asked at registration or receive a letter from your student’s teachers asking for a check to cover the cost of needed classroom supplies.

•    Large Capital Purchases:  Third, this is our 10th year anniversary of Dougherty Valley High School, we want to support the school and students even more.  Goals include:

•    Increasing donations to make large capital expenditures to replace aging equipment,

•    Bolstering the engineering and science departments by providing new equipment and technology,

•    Growing the fine arts department by providing additional equipment and supplies.

 

To succeed, we are asking every family to contribute $425 per student or $600 per family.  If you’re able to give more, additional contributions are always welcome, but contributions of ANY amount are gratefully received.  As the DVHS Education Fund benefits every student, we urge every family to give something - even if you presently are not able to give the full amount. 

 

SPECIAL RAFFLE!!!!

For those parents who donate the full amount they will automatically get enrolled in a special raffle with awesome prizes!!

1)   APPLE WATCH Series 2  - 1 winner

2)   4 Reserved Front row seats for senior graduation day– 2 winners.

 

You can make your annual donation several ways:

1.      Go to DVHigh.net and in the “quick links” section in the upper left hand corner, click on “webstore” and then select “wildcat days registration”.  Choose one of the Education Fund options depending on the amount of your donation.

2.     Pay your donation via credit card at the DVHS Ed Fund table during Wildcat Days Registration (we gladly accept Visa, MasterCard, AmEx and Discover cards)

3.     Pay via check (made payable to DVHS Education Fund) at the DVHS Ed Fund table during Wildcat Days Registration

 

Mindful of the demands on your time and your wallet, the annual donation drive during the Wildcat Days registration is the ONLY fundraiser we hold. We do not hold an auction, car wash, cookie dough sale or any other fundraisers during the year.  So your support at registration is critical to fulfilling our goals.

 

Thank you so much for your continued support.  I am looking forward to another amazing school year.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dharmesh Mistry

President, DVHS Education Fund
