Goodbye to Cyber Stacey!

From Chris Bennett, PFSO President:

Please take a moment to join me in thanking an incredible person and volunteer at Dublin High, Stacey Maloney. Stacey, whose youngest is graduating from DHS this year, has consistently contributed to Dublin schools for many years. Stacey is always willing to go above and beyond, not only stepping into leadership roles but recreating and expanding those roles. Some highlights of her accomplishments include:

  • With Yvonne Nickles, creating and implementing the “Raise Your Class Gaela” to bring in more funding for Dublin High
  • Single-handedly inventing the “Cyber Stacey” parent communication role and process at DHS
  • Incredible loyalty to her son’s class working as a Parent Rep for four years
  • Serving as a leadership member of the Athletic Boosters team for seven years

Stacey is a strong advocate for things she believes will make Dublin schools better. She clearly and persuasively makes her point, isn’t afraid to debate when necessary, and inspires others through her hard work and tireless commitment. Most importantly, while some others talk a good game, we all know Stacey will “get ‘er done.”

If I asked any DHS parent who they get most of their information from, they’d answer without hesitation: “Cyber Stacey.” And just as a side note, it’s going to take 3-4 new volunteers to begin to fill her shoes next year!!

We so appreciate her hard work and we wish her all the best. DHS will miss her very much!

Special Thanks to our Parent Reps!

The PFSO would like to take the opportunity to thank our Parent Representatives:

  • Senior Reps- Stacey Maloney and Yvonne Nickles
  • Junior Reps- Tamara Elias and Patricia Wilcox
  • Sophomore Rep- Stephanie Stanley, Kelly Timm and Kristen Finn
  • Freshman Reps- Terri Dyer, Shari Jackman and Rosemary Brassea

The majority of the parent community probably isn’t aware of the depth of volunteerism and commitment required to be a parent rep. These ladies work tirelessly throughout the year, EVERY YEAR, for FOUR YEARS!!

Without their kindness and dedication to our students, there would be no Grad Night, no Senior Picnic, Senior Breakfast, Homecoming and the list goes on and on. If you happen to see these ladies, please make sure to take the opportunity to thank them for the great job they are doing!!

Dublin High School Schedule Change Town Hall Meetings!

The District will be holding two Town Hall meetings – one on Thursday, June 5 at Fallon Middle School and the second on Monday, June 9 at Dublin High School. Both meetings will begin at 6:30pm.

In an effort to boldly enhance educational opportunities for our students at Dublin High School, the district is in the process of developing a plan that will significantly improve the learning environment.

If approved by the Board of Trustees, the plan that is in development will alter the structure of the school day at DHS and is likely to lengthen the time students are on campus.

Please plan to attend one of the scheduled Town Hall meetings to learn more about the exciting plans.

Goodbye to Terri Oravetz

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Mrs. Oravetz in Student Activities at the end of this school year.

Terri has been a huge help to the PFSO throughout the years. From collecting money for our various fundraisers and events to answering questions and taking care of small details as we need them, without Terri we could not be the successful organization that we are.

We wish her much happiness in her retirement and thank her for her many years of service.

Thank You

I wanted to give a big thank you to Chris Bennett, our PFSO President who was also the editor and fact checker for my newsletters this year. I truly appreciate her help.

Sincerely, Stacey Maloney
