Support DSE’S Art Show and Fundraiser

Your student artists have been working hard all year to create amazing masterpieces, and the April 9th art show is a fun event to showcase their work.  The art will be displayed throughout the school hallways, and will stay hanging for several weeks afterward to give everyone a chance to admire the artwork.Another exciting part of the art show is an artwork raffle fundraiser.  Each class will collaborate to create a unique canvas that will be raffled off to raise funds for art supplies.  The tickets will be sold for $1 each during the evening art show and during student lunches April 9-17.  One person will win each canvas!

This fundraiser is a great way to support the DSE Art Program, and add some beauty to your home or office!  The artwork will be able to be previewed in the front of the school during the week of the art show.

If you are able to volunteer, please complete this form.

Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

Everyone Can Win
I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for Third Alternatives.
