School Supplies: If you are in need of school supplies, please stop by the front desk and we’d be happy to assist you!
Wednesday Snacks for DVC Staff: We have regular staff collaboration time on Wednesdays from 2:30 – 4:00pm. We are hoping to have 2 families supply snacks/treats for us each Wednesday. We need snacks for about 40 staff members in total, so each family would contribute snacks for about 20 individuals. If you are willing and able to help, please sign up here: Wednesday Snack Sign Up . If you’d like to supply snacks for 40, please sign up for both slots. Thank you!
