The mission of Dalton High School’s PTO is to bring parents and teachers together to provide support and programs that benefit the students at DHS. One of the main ways we will do this is through the Teacher Grant process which helps fund innovative programs making learning more meaningful for our students.
PTO Awards Teacher Grants
Through membership dues, t-shirt sales, collection jars and spirit nights, the PTO has raised over $2,000 so far this school year. That money is now going directly back to support learning in the classroom at DHS. Teachers were invited to submit applications for grants and winners were chosen by a group of administrators and PTO members. Congratulations to the following grant winners:
C.J Little - Agriculture Dept. Use: To help fund the cost of a field trip to Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, GA to visit the spring Daffodil Festival in March 2017.
