Big House

The Big House Committee is the DGS version of what other schools might call a Community School Collaborative. It consists of parents, students, teachers, Lead Partners, a community member and classified (non-teaching) staff. The purpose and scope of the Big House  is to enhance student achievement and school climate by engaging the school community in collaborative efforts supporting the school's mission, vision and goals. The Big House Committee also helps us review, support and achieve our Uniified Improvement Plan with the district.

The DGS Big House Committee holds monthly meetings which are open to the public. Meeting dates, agendas, and minutes will be posted via the links below. As valued members of the DGS community, the representatives of the Big House welcome your questions and input. Any questions and input should be related to the purpose and scope of the BHC as outlined above and can be directed to the Lead Partners or please feel free to email the elected officials below. 

The meetings will be the First Tuesday of every month, from 5:00-6:30pm in the Middle School Cottage.

DGS Parent Forum and SPF Presentation

Please join us on Thursday October 9 in the DGS Middle School Cottage from 6pm to 7:30pm for our first DGS Parent Forum of the year, hosted by your DGS Big House parent representatives Andreia Ziuliani, Colin Bane and Erin Lovins. 

We'll be discussing progress made on the list of priorities generated at our Spring 2014 Parent Forum and adding new parent priorities to the list. The DGS Partners will also be presenting data from our School Performance Framework (SPF). This is our report card from the state that tells us how we are doing as a school. We would value this opportunity to share with this data and highlight some of our successes as well as talk about some of our challenges as we revisit our school's Unified Improvement Plan (UIP). 

We invite you to be be part of this interactive discussion and bring your ideas and questions to the table. We will be providing pizza and childcare.
