Help make the 3rd Annual Silent Auction a success!!

February 28, 2014 at 1:05 pm


The PTSA is hosting our 3rd Annual Silent Auction on Thursday, March 20th during the Annual Open House event at DPMHS.

The Silent Auction is our main fundraiser each year and there are several ways our DPMHS families can help:

1)       Donate to your students’ classroom theme basket
Many of the 2nd period classrooms are preparing theme baskets to be sold in the Silent Auction.  Ask your student what theme their 2nd period has chosen for their basket and then please consider donating an item to go in the basket.  Participation is optional, but we have had some great baskets put together for the past two years and hope to continue the tradition this year.  Donations should be sent in to school by Monday, March 10th.

2)       Donate an item or service to be in the Silent Auction
Do you own a business or have a friend or business connection that would be able to donate an item or service?  The DPMHS PTSA is a 501(c)(3) organization so all donations are tax deductible.  Attached to this email is a solicitation letter and a donation form that you may use.  Donations should be sent in to school by Monday, March 10th.

3)       Volunteer to help with the event
We need people to help wrap baskets prior to the event and also volunteers the day of the event to set up, man tables, take payment, and clean up.

To sign up to help, please contact Marilyn Adler at 818-321-8030 or

4)       Come to the Open House/Silent Auction
If nothing else, please plan on coming to the event on March 20th. Bring your family and friends.  This will be the night to show off our school.  In addition to the Silent Auction and the classrooms being open, there will be food trucks in the parking lot and a book fair in the library!



In preparation for the Open House/Silent Auction, the PTSA is also hosting a clean-up day (aka Sparkle Saturday) at school on Saturday, March 8 from 8:30am – 12:30pm. Please bring your own gloves, rakes, brooms, etc. to help out.  We plan to tidy up the school grounds including the parking lot, front lawn, and small interior courtyards.  If you have any questions, please email
