Dublin High School Raise Your Glass Gala

This is the last week of sales for the Raise Your Class Gala  tickets.  Please remember that this  the biggest fundraiser for the PFSO!  The profits from the event are split evenly between the PFSO and each class at DHS.  Not only will the money go along way to help the PFSO purchase supplies and support  programs but it will also help each class to have a Safe and Sober grad night.

The “Raise Your Class” Gala will be held on Saturday, Nov. 6th at the San Ramon Golf Club at 6:00 p.m.  Come join us for an adult evening that will include appetizers, full buffet dinner, no-host bar, as well as dancing.  There will also be silent, live, and dessert auctions.  As a bonus you will automatically be entered to win some great raffle prizes with the purchase of your ticket!  Event flyer available here.

Tickets are on sale now for $55 per person. They will be available until October 22th. To purchase tickets you can come by the school on Friday and visit the table across from Student Activities (next to the food cart) or you can  make your check payable to Dublin High PFSO and mail to Dublin High RYC PO Box 2559 Dublin, CA 94568. If you are super busy and having trouble with these instructions, just email or give a call and we will make special arrangements to meet you.

Freshman / Sophomore Parent Night

Freshman and Sophomore Parents- Don’t miss Freshmen/Sophomore Parent Night this Wednesday at 6:30 pm in the Little Theater.

Senior Parents – College Application Reminders 

Remind seniors that once they apply to schools that they need to make sure to create a student account as directed in any e-mail they receive from each campus they are applying to.  Often, students do not read letters carefully and neglect to set up an account on each school server. 

Schools will use the e-mail accounts for each campus to let students know what they need to complete their applications.  Students should NOT send transcripts to public institutions unless specifically requested.  Some campuses are using this as a way to “weed out” applicants.  For instance, a student may arrange in October to have a transcript sent to each school that they are applying to.  If a campus has not requested this document, they will put it in the trash.  Then, later on they will request a transcript.  The student will think they are “safe”, because they sent the transcript early on.  They will not realize no transcript has been “received”, since it was discarded because it was not requested. 

Some schools will then reject applicants because they did not “receive the proper requested documentation”.  Seniors must check their e-mail accounts from campuses often and send requested materials when requested.  Failure to meet deadlines or honor requests from schools will immediately remove students from the applicant pool for schools.

These same e-mail accounts will remind students about deadlines for submitting housing forms, deposits and are the primary way most schools will use to communicate with their students. 

Private schools would like a copy of the transcript and standardized testing to be sent when the student applies to the college or university.  Most will then want a Mid-Year Report to be sent after the first semester grades are available, and Dublin High School sends a final transcript for no charge to the school stipulated by each senior.  If students have applied using the Common Application, the Mid-Year Report and Final Report are printed off the Common Application website and students should turn those into their counselor close to the end of the first semester.  Again, students should carefully follow what each individual school wants, as not all schools work the same way.  If in doubt, students should call Admissions with questions.
