The PTSA Needs Your Support!

Prior PTSA meeting minutes and treasurer reports can be found at the official WEBSITE.  The PTSA supports the school and last year the PTSA did the following: 1) gave out over $5000 in grants to teachers to pay for art supplies, SmartMusic subscriptions for the entire music department, Horton dance instruction, Reading Bowl books, transportation for Drama Ensemble 2) paid for the Parchment subscription so our students can get their official transcripts, 3) paid for TimeCenter to schedule counselor appointments, 4) paid for program printing for Premiere Weekend, 5) supported farewell gifts for our seniors, 6) purchased pizza for SPA Dance and student auditions, 7) provided meals during Teacher/Staff Appreciation week and tokens of appreciation for faculty/staff, 8) supported a back to school picnic, plus many other things.

The main source of funding is through parent/family donations to the Enrichment Fund and the Teacher Appreciation Fund. These donations are about 85% of the revenue. Other funds come from concessions at shows, fundraising through BoxTops/Publix Partners/Amazon Smile, and PTSA memberships. Without everyone's generosity, everything listed above would not be possible. DSA PTSA is a 501(c)3 organization, and any donations are tax deductible. You can donate to the Enrichment Fund and/or Teacher Appreciation Fund (regardless of PTSA membership) at the DSA PTSA online STORE .

PTSA also helps distribute a weekly newsletter during the school year through MemberHub, a service paid for through the Georgia PTA.  You can sign up for MemberHub by purchasing a PTSA membership from the online DSA PTSA online STORE.

You can also sign up directly for the MemberHub site if you don't want to purchase a PTSA MEMBERSHIP. PTSA Memberships need to be renewed annually to stay active. If you had a Memberhub account before, you are still in the system unless your email was entered incorrectly last year.
