Sister School Program

sister school backpack drive - till october 1


Who Doesn’t Want to “Cut” to the Front of the Line? 

Homecoming is just around the corner! Donate a NEW backpack for our sister school’s Backpack Drive so that you can get a fast pass and avoid the long line. Act fast! Only the first 100 people to donate can get a fast pass! 

What’s a Fast Pass?

You get front-of-the-line privileges at the long, long Homecoming entrance line!

Who Can Get the Fast Pass?

For the first 100 backpacks, there is one student pass for each new backpack donated. Students can upload a picture of their receipt as proof of purchase for Amazon orders.

How Does One Get the Fast Pass?

Scan the QR Code, and complete the form with an uploaded picture of the new backpack donation. Full instructions are in the form. 

Bring the new backpack to the bins in front of the DVHS Office OR purchase a backpack through our Sister School’s Amazon Wish List!

Note: Homecoming ticket is not included; you must purchase a separate Homecoming Ticket from the Webstore. The Homecoming Dance will be held on Saturday, September 25, from 7-10pm in the main gym and outdoors on campus. All attending MUST wear masks at all times. Tickets are available through the DVHS Webstore under Homecoming Dance

Hope to see you all at HoCo 2021!

The toy drive was a huge success!!


sister school Toy Drive

Make a difference! We Need Your Help! DVHS PTSA and the DVHS Community Outreach Leadership Committee are pleased to host another Annual Sister School Holiday Toy Drive. Join us and support our Sister School, Futures, and Community United Elementary Schools in Oakland. The students at our sister school are elementary kids. There are 617 boys and girls, so please plan on the toys being age-appropriate and focus on NEW "toys". The request was to NOT include books (they are not toys), or toy weapons (not appropriate) and puzzles are not ideal either (especially if they are difficult given the ages of the kids). You can donate toys starting November 1st at DVHS (drop off bins outside of the office). Our drive will continue until December 10.

You can shop anywhere or use the Amazon Wishlist to shop. Thank you for your support and generosity! For questions, contact the DVHS Leadership Community Outreach committee, or the DVHS PTSA. Please make sure that the toy is unwrapped.

For questions, contact the DVHS Leadership Community Outreach committee to DVHS PTSA.
