DREAM has many events throughout each school year and we cannot do it without your help. Please consider volunteering for our 2020-21 events once we are back in school. We are looking for people to be on committees for our fundraisers and family events next year. Please consider offering your time and expertise to make our goal of supporting the wonderful programs at Deterding successful.
