5th Grade Students Enter Your 23-24 Elective Requests Before Feb. 17th

5th Grade Parents, The Dana Middle Counseling Department has created an informational letter providing you with directions for how to identify your child’s elective options for the 2023-24 school year. Please complete this task by Friday, February 17th, 2023. Students who do not submit elective choices may be randomly assigned an elective for next year. Families not attending Dana next year should use this form to communicate this information to us. Click this link for more information.

Join the Tennis Program @ Dana

After-school Tennis is continuing this Winter at Dana Middle School. We put the "fun" back into fundamentals. Each week builds on the skills learned previously. This will be our 5th year offering After-School Tennis at Dana. If unavailable on Fridays, private lessons are also

available. Contact the coach, Richard Huynh, at (858) 231-1331 to inquire about private rates and availability. YCT was created by ex-college tennis player and credentialed teacher Kevin Surrey. Click this link to view the informational flier.

Donate to the FoDaC Annual Giving Fund

We are only at 20% of our fundraising goal of $30,000, and we need your support! Funds raised will assist teachers and staff members, supply supplemental educational materials and student experiences, and support school and family social interactions. Without the generosity of your tax-deductible donations, these enrichment programs and special events are not possible. We know with everyone’s support we will have a successful campaign with spectacular outcomes that enrich our children and community!
