Can you already believe it’s time for our school Spring concerts? That winter felt like it would never end!
We’ve posted a link to the Dartmouth Schools Music Calendar from our website here. The new school website maintains a calendar of all upcoming concerts, along with their time and location. Please visit it to see the times and places for your student’s concerts. We have also updated the front page of our website to show upcoming concerts as well.
The fire lane at Dartmouth High School must be kept clear of ALL TRAFFIC. Please see the below information on where groups should enter and park.
-DSMA Volunteers: Please park in the DYSA lot (use the first entrance at the high school when coming up Russells Mills Road).
-Busses: Busses may use the student drop-off lane at arrival, then may park in the far lot next to the tennis courts and baseball field (behind the track).
-Box Trucks: All box trucks may use the first entrance to the high school (DYSA field entrance) and unload at the school’s loading dock. Trucks should then proceed to the far lot to park (same lot as busses).
-Semi Trucks: Semi trucks may use the student drop-off lane to unload. Please full as far forward in the lane as possible, and park against the curb on the right (within the dotted lines).

That’s right, the DSMA Yard Sale to help raise funds for the Dartmouth School Music Association is back!
The yard sale will be held on Saturday August 19 from 8AM – 2PM at the Dartmouth Middle School parking lot.
You can come to browse all the great items available, you can reserve a parking space (or two) to sell your own items, or if you like you can even donate items directly to the DSMA to sell and help raise money.
For more information, please see our Fundraising page.
Membership is now open for anyone who wishes to become a DSMA member to help support the Dartmouth Schools Music Association.
A family membership costs just $15, and helps to support all of the activities the music students are involved with. Your membership also helps to fund scholarships that we award every year to members of our senior class.
Anyone who wishes to become a DSMA member for the 2017-2018 school year can simply download this DSMA application and send it in along with payment. For more information, please visit our Membership page.
Thank you for helping to support the DSMA!
The volunteer schedule for the Gillette 2017-2018 season has been published!
To volunteer for a shift and help earn money towards your child’s assessment, please click this link, and you’ll be taken to the online form where you can sign up. Please fill out the form in full, so we have all of your contact information, along with the student who you are volunteering for so we can make sure their assessment is credited for your hard work..
Remember – families are requested to work two shifts per child. Our stand at Gillette provides almost $40,000 each year to the DSMA, if we do not fully staff our shifts we will lose that money we all generate for our kids.
Volunteer shifts are fun and the time passes quickly! Events the DSMA is assigned include Patriots games (both regular season and preseason), Revolution games, UMASS football, concerts, and more!
And don’t forget, just about anyone can volunteer to help staff the booth, and earn money towards your student’s assessment. Parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, family friends… they’re all welcome to help staff the shift and keep our nationally recognized program running.
If you have any questions about the schedule or volunteering for an event, please email Chris Vieira at firstname.lastname@example.org
