DPS administrators, staff recognize parents, volunteers
Dayton Public Schools will honor nearly 1,000 parents and community members on April 28 during The Parent and Community Volunteer Reception. The dessert reception will begin at 7 p.m. in Building 12 on the Sinclair Community College campus.
The program will feature the Hickorydale String Orchestra; the Belmont Honor Guard, which will present the flags; and Terrence Grimes, Hickorydale music teacher, who will sing the National Anthem.
Superintendent Percy Mack, Ph.D., and Dayton Board of Education President Gail Littlejohn will speak about the value of volunteers and the positive impact they have on public education.
"It is important to show appreciation for our parents and community volunteers," stated Mack. "Our school volunteers give selflessly of their time to support the success of students in Dayton Public Schools, and we are grateful for their commitment."
Last year, 2,888 individuals volunteered their time to DPS elementary students as mentors and tutors, among other things.
