Whether you are a parent, grandparent, alumni, or friend, our students are looking for your support for the DWS 2021 Read-a-Thon. Our school has worked hard this year to surpass an incredible budget shortfall of nearly $530,000 due to unexpected costs of holding school remotely and in-person this year. Your sponsorship will help us come back stronger than ever, ready for Summer Camp, Fall 2021 classes, and even more in future years – Join us as we make reading a ritual at DWS!
