Current Events and Donations/Volunteer Opportunities
- Staff Breakfast is back! Donations & Volunteers NEEDED
We need your help with STAFF BREAKFAST next Tuesday, Oct 26th! This is a wonderful way for us to show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate all that they do, especially during this challenging school year. We are asking ALL families for food and drink donations (and CAN be homemade!) to be brought to the school either the day before (Monday, Oct 25th) during school hours or by 7:30 am on the day of the breakfast Tuesday, Oct 26th (hot breakfast items especially welcome). Staff breakfasts are a favorite amongst the teachers and staff at Byers so your help will be highly appreciated! Please, CLICK HERE to sign up.
THANK YOU for your much needed help to make this event a success!

- Growing Together @Byers (GT@B) Annual Fund
If you haven’t had a chance to donate to DSST: Byers this year, please do so! If you already have given, thank you! As our most accessible and broadly impactful ‘plus one’ opportunity (which encourages every family to volunteer and/or contribute at least one thing to Byers), we are hoping that every member of our community will give what they can – be it $1 or $1,000 (or more) to our Growing Together @ Byers Annual Fund.
Please check if your company/employer has a matching gift program. Also, consider asking grandparents, aunts, uncles and other family members to contribute! Lastly, we do accept pledges now for donations at a later date. We are so deeply thankful for your continued support of DSST: Byers so that together we can continue to be a part of a top performing school in Denver and Colorado! To set up a one-time or recurring donation, please CLICK HERE.
