The Spring Brunch is the biggest Parent Council fund raiser of the 2012-2013 school year. All profits go directly to Parent Council. Parent Council uses the funds to support the school through teacher training, improvements to playground equipment, etc.

The Brunch Team will orchestrate an all-you-can-eat brunch, raffle, and silent auction to be held on Sunday, March 24th. The brunch is prepared by volunteers and raffle/auction items are solicited and/or donated by team and community members.

This is a wonderful event for the whole family as well as a great opportunity to show off DMS to friends and family. The time, enthusiasm, and hard work of many helpful parents are critical to the success of this event!
