DVHS PTSA

Welcome Back to 2018-19 School Year!

Did you buy school supplies you don't need? Or perhaps you got a really good deal on supplies? Trying to organize and declutter? Or feel like shopping and giving to those in need? Here's a great opportunity to make a real difference -- there are students that don't have the supplies they need for school. Consider donating school supplies to our Sister School!

 

Back to School Drive: 8/20-8/31

It's that time of the year again! DVHS PTSA and Leadership Students are hosting a Back to School Drive for our sister school, CUES (Community United Elementary School in Oakland), and we need your help! This drive will run from August 20th to the 31st. Feel free to drop off donations in the front office or have students take them to the bins on campus, where they will be located in each building. All school supplies are welcome and greatly appreciated. Help our sister school start off the year right!

 

Congratulations PTSA Members and Supports! You make the difference!

Legislative Advocacy Update

High School Voter Registration

California State celebrated High School Voter Education during the last two weeks of April. To encourage and support local students and schools, Contra Costa County has created a free, mobile texting tool just for high school students. Using this program, Contra Costa County students 16 and up can preregister and those 18 and older can register to vote.

DIRECTIONS:
1-Text your school name to: 2Vote (28683)
2- Receive a reply text with a link to quick, easy voter registration tools.

Additional election-related resources specifically for younger voters (mock elections on youth-oriented topics, poll worker opportunities, HS voter registration drive ideas) can be found on the California Secretary of State website.
