Towel Drive for Animals at the SPCA

This is the last week that Sage is collecting towels for the SPCA.  Any towel sizes are accepted and can be old or new.  They can even have small holes, but not big holes.  There is a box in the lobby.  Please contribute if you can by June 6th.


End of the year celebration potluck

Our end of the year potluck will take place Friday, June 7th from 11:30 -1:00. Please bring a dish to share to the event.  We will start with a short recognition ceremony at the north wing outdoor area before we eat our lunch together in room 1. We could use help with set up and/or cleanup so please let your DSIS teacher know if you can volunteer.


School Garden Summer Care  

We have a few more weeks in August that we could use a volunteer.  Thank you for signing up for a week this summer to help tend our garden. We are taking turns watering, harvesting and caring for it, one week at a time, over the summer.  A sign-up is posted on the bulletin board by the DSIS mailboxes for families and teachers to volunteer for garden care. Thank you all for your help!


Library Book Return

Diane, our librarian, would like to have books turned in by the 10th of June.  We recognize that school is not over until the 13th.  If you absolutely need to have a book out past the 10th, please let Amy or Cathy know.  To aid Diane in the challenging job she has of checking in all of the books at the end of the year, we ask that if you have any books that are not currently in use, to please turn them in as soon as possible.


Workshop Schedule for Next Year

For planning purposes we would like to inform you, that at this point, the workshop schedule looks as though it will be the same next year as it is this year.  This goes for the Robotics workshop also.


Do you know of homeschool families that might like to attend DSIS next school year?

We are in the process for planning for next year and would love to welcome new families who would like to join DSIS for the 2019-20 school year.  If a family is interested in enrolling at DSIS we would like them to call our office at (530)757-5333 to make an appointment with Marvie Paulson, our counselor.  We welcome all prospective students to come see if we are the right program for them.


Thank you

It is a joy to get to be a part of our DSIS homeschooling community!  We appreciate all of the work, growth and sharing each family and person contributes.  We are so lucky to have all of you.  It is fun to start looking forward to next school year!  Have a nice summer!
