Fall Fair – Saturday, November 17, 2018

The annual Fall Fair is our major fundraising initiative that allows Dorval Home & School to accumulate funds for several activities spanning all grade levels; like subsidized field trips and the Year End Carnival.  This is a fun event for all ages and a great way to spend a few hours on Saturday.  Come spend some time browsing for goods made my local artisans, purchase baked goods provided by the DES parent community, try your luck at our fun cake walks, raffle, and auction or find a good read in our book nook.  Kids can have a great time in our “Kids Zone”, either shopping or getting their faces painted!  Come join in the fun, and if possible, give us an hour of your time to volunteer at this great event which truly gives back to our children throughout the year.

If you are interested in signing up for an hour to help on the day, please e-mail dorvalhomeandschool@gmail.com or sign up directly with our Volunteer signup sheet.

Staff Appreciation – February 2019

The dedicated staff at DES work very hard every day; and we all want to show much we appreciate them!  During staff appreciation week in February, we try to do just that by providing staff with a potluck lunch supplied by the parent community, little fun treats every day which can range from school supplies to flowers to sweets, a coffee cart, and much more.  We really are lucky to have such great staff at DES and this week gives us the chance to give back a little.


Year-End Carnival – June 2019

The Year-End Carnival is a highly anticipated H&S sponsored event that allows DES families and staff to come together in celebration of another successful school year.  The Carnival has everything for good fun with family, friends, & staff – be sure to come and enjoy something to eat, carnival games, music, and great company!


The events listed above are the major events sponsored and organized by the DES Home & School, but there are many other initiatives that the H&S are responsible for.  For a complete listing of school year activities, please click here for the 2018-19 H&S Activities document. 


All of these events would not, could not, be possible without the help of its volunteers.  The volunteers for each of these events are comprised of parents of the DES students.  Even one hour of time at any, or all, of these events goes a long way to ensuring the continued success and continuation of these events.  If you would be interested in volunteering, please e-mail us at: DorvalHomeandSchool@gmail.com
