Welcome to the DHSPA Website !

On behalf of the Darien High School Parents Association (DHSPA), welcome to the 2015/2016 school year at Darien High School. Each year, we work to provide our parents with informative programs and support our students and faculty with the events, programs and enrichment opportunities that make DHS a rewarding and supportive learning community.

There are many resources available on our website that will assist you, as parents, in navigating the high school experience. We encourage you to read the Parents Survival Guide. It answers many of the frequently asked questions and directs to you the appropriate person to contact should you not find an answer in the Guide.

Our DHSPA meetings are another opportunity for you to learn about what's happening in the school and ask questions. Our new Superintendent, Dr. Dan Brenner, will join us for our first meeting on September 15th. Principal Ellen Dunn and Director of Guidance Paul Ribeiro will also be on-hand to share information on "What's New at DHS" for this school year. Come for coffee at 8:45 am, and our meeting will begin at 9:00.

Our success as a PTO hinges on the participation, support and involvement of our parents. Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to volunteer your time, talents and energy, and we hope you will get involved.

Here's to a great school year!
