DCS Open House

Open House is a great way for prospective families and students to get an inside look at Dominion's academic offerings and extra-curricular opportunities in a uniquely Christian environment.

Volunteers & Donations needed

Dominion's Holiday House is right around the corner! Each year the Fine Arts Department kicks off the season with this annual event. It is a great time for our families and the community to come together for fun activities, fellowship, great food, entertainment, and a silent auction (a great start for Holiday shopping).
 
Holiday House is on Thursday,
November 19, 6:00 - 8:30 PM.
 

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with breakdown and clean up after the event. We also need help gathering donation items for the silent auction to benefit DARTS, Dominion Fine Arts. (a few examples - event tickets, gift cards, one or two-night vacations, home décor, services, trips, gift baskets).

 

These donations from our Dominion family are very much appreciated - they are essential in making this event a huge success!

 

Donations will be accepted through the Front Office. When dropping off, please fill out a form so that your tax-deductible donation letter can be issued at a later date. (Please do not drop donations off at cabin).

 

For more information, donations or volunteers, please contact Suzanne Huff

Support the DCS Rewards Programs
Parents, we have added another simple way for Dominion to earn money through a new rewards program. The Amazon Smile program will donate 0.5% on eligible purchases to Dominion Christian Schools for those who participate in the program.

To get started, you must shop through their Amazon Smiles site: http://smile.amazon.com instead of the traditional Amazon site. Once on this site, search for "Dominion Christian Schools, Inc" Marietta, GA and choose our school as the beneficiary. You will then shop as usual (all products/prices are the same as the regular amazon site). If everyone participates, the 0.5% will add up to a respectable donation for Dominion.

Last year you all helped our school raised approximately $1000 from box tops, coke rewards, and labels for education. Thank you so much for your continued participation in all of these programs!
