Welcome! The mission of the PTA is to improve the education provided to DLS students by supporting the school and its activities. The PTA helps to fund a wish list of items from the school as well as many additional activities that make our school such a wonderful place. The success of the PTA is directly linked to the participation of parents, so we strongly encourage everyone to be involved this year.
- Volunteer for the PTA Executive Board for 2016-2017 - The PTA is still seeking members of the DLS community that are interested in serving on the PTA Executive Board. If you would like to represent the Green Team (composting, recycling, and gardening at DLS), Fundraising (planning fun events for the school), or serve as President-Elect (becoming President the following year), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration – we look forward to working with you! For more information on the current board positions, visit http://www.dlspta.org/committees.
Not ready to commit to a full-year position? No problem! Your time is extremely important in helping to make our events successful.If you have a couple of hours to support or help plan these FUNdraisers (like Bingo Night or Direct Giving Parties), please let us know. Email email@example.com.
- Field Day at DLS EAST on May 26 needs volunteers! - Thursday, May 26, is Field Day at East Campus. Robin Riley (the PE teacher at DLS East) needs parent volunteers for the event. The gym teachers are also looking for a scoreboard or timer to borrow. Please email Robin directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. (The West Campus Field Day is Wednesday, May 25, and the 7th graders will be helping with that event.)
- DLS Green Team In Need of Lunchroom Help - We are so excited to have our compost and recycling programs back at DLS, but for the programs to succeed, we really need some parent help! It is only a 2-hour shift from 11:05-12:55 and you get to see your kid(s). If just 10 people sign up, we will have enough help to get us through the beginning of March! Please check out the sign up here to help out! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0e4fa5a82ba02-lunchtime
- We need volunteers for general help at both campuses. Stay tuned for sign-up opportunities, or please email email@example.com.

Become part of the Denver Language School Celebration Community Garden for 2016!
We are now accepting applications to have a garden plot for the 2016 season! The DLS Celebration Community Garden applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the plots are full, you will be placed on a waiting list. Denver Urban Gardens asks each gardener to pay a $35/year fee, which helps subsidize water, compost and other garden materials. This fee can be waived based on financial need, so please ask for information because the garden is open to all!
Contact Garden Leader Julie Feeny at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
The DLS Celebration Community Garden is a school-supported community garden opened in 2014 in partnership with Denver Urban Gardens. In addition to providing a space for school families and neighbors to connect while growing delicious food, the garden provides a hands-on learning opportunity for students and their teachers to explore life sciences, healthy living and taking care of the environment.
