 IMPORTANT DATES            
  •  General meeting - all welcome on Friday, May 6th at 8am, DHS 

 
TITANS FOR TURF!       
Last fall, our Board of Supervisors passed a motion for Potomac Falls High School to have their turf field installed this year.  While we are very grateful that the board also included Dominion and the remaining three schools for turf field construction, we are not scheduled to get our fields until 2023-2024.  We are encouraging our Board of Supervisors to construct the fields for the remaining four schools, including Dominion, together the following year.  There are many compelling reasons why the conversions should take place much sooner than the currently proposed budget date.  We need to address with our Board of Supervisors, the growing inequities for the minority of schools who continue each year without turf.
 
We are asking all of our Domioion High School cluster families to attend the Board of Supervisors meetings, write to each member of the Board of Supervisors, and members of the School Board, and sign our petition.  Please contact Janean Buchner at janean.buchner@sothebyrealty.com for more detailed information on our core talking points.

TECHNOLOGY NEEDS AT DHS         
Our school is implementing a Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) initiative.  BYOT supports 'One to the World' aims to make students competitive on global level. This approach incorporates students and schools to use personal technology to learn new ways to collaborate and interact with their teachers and each other to research information, solve complex problems, create original products, and publish their work. Dominion High School serves a student body where many students are empowered to bring personal devices to school to enhance their educational experience. However, 25 percent of our students live in poverty and lack access to the instructional technology tools that will allow them to achieve at the same high levels as their peers.  

We need to support our teachers and students, especially those who are most vulnerable, and provide them tools for the rigors of the 21st century. Falling behind in our improvements to technology is simply not something we can afford. We need your help to raise funds for our school for technology needs.
