This is our most critical fundraising position and requires a volunteer that can market an Annual Giving Campaign throughout the year, track fundraising goals and create incentives for donations from parents, families and our community to fund resources, events and supplies for the Dana and Correia students
Our volunteer coordinators will work to manage parent volunteers for events or for staff needs on campus... they are also our Dana and Correia Vice Presidents! Each campus will have it's own needs at any given time so please be sure to coordinate with one of these wonderful ladies if you sign up as a volunteer at school or at an event!
The biggest and most fun event for the students every year! While the event is held at Dana, all donations raised are shared in a general fund that will benefit your child while they are at Dana and beyond, when the head on to Correia! This is the best example of how FoDaC works to create a more inclusive "4-year" experience for our students and to promote a better sense of community among the students, parents and staff at both schools. This event takes a VILLAGE to pull off annually
The Logo Wear team is responsible for creating designs, purchasing, selling and tracking online inventory for all logo wear and designs for both Dana and Correia. This is a great place for someone with graphic design experience and time to collaborate behind the scenes, with occasional sales on school campus and at school events
This position involves community engagement to schedule monthly "Family Dinner Nights" out in our Point Loma community. Many local businesses and restaurants will donate a portion of their sales back to our organization! You will schedule these fun events and create flyers for their promotion through our school eblasts, newsletter and this website
Outdoor movies under the stars... who doesn't love that? This position involves coordinating two outdoor movie events on the Dana campus that are open to all Dana and Correia students & families. Typically there is one movie night in the fall and another in the spring. Setting up vendor sales, snacks, drinks, band performances, movie selection, logo wear sales and whatever else suits your fancy! This will require a committee of several volunteers and a lead chairperson or two to pull off
This position involves coordinating a fall and spring Book Fair, generally partnered with Scholastic Book Fairs and held in the Dana library. Volunteers will help coordinate the Book Fair with Scholastic and with the Dana librarian, chaperone and assist students and parents visiting the library in shifts and work the cash registers. This is a fun way to be involved and on campus during the day while your student is at school.
This is a great position for someone that likes to plan a party! You will coordinate with Dana Administration & Counselors for the date and time to hold an informal Welcome Breakfast for new parents and families of 4th grade students that are planning to attend Dana in the fall. Typically, we provide a budget for "continental-style" breakfast items, drinks, pastries and all necessary serving items. Chairperson and volunteers will purchase items within the budget, set up & break down the event.
Show your love for our Dana & Correia teachers, staff and administration! This position requires a bit of planning and is a LOT of fun! Being budget minded, you will put together a week's worth of appreciation, something special for every day of the week! Sweet treats, breakfast bars, candy carts, boxed lunches and taco carts are just a few examples... be as creative as you like! Great to join forces as a group so, recruit some friends to help!
