Gillette 2024/2025 fundraising events open!

We have officially kicked off our 2024/2025 Gillette fundraising season!

The DSMA raises over $50,000 annually at Gillette Stadium, which helps cover nearly half of the total amount we need to raise every year to support our programs. Every student benefits from Gillette shifts – if your student is in any of the performing groups, especially those at DHS, then you should be volunteering for at least one shift per season to help raise funds.

Volunteers also earn $50 per shift towards student assessment accounts. So you get money attributed to your student, while helping to reduce overall costs for all of our music groups that need to travel, compete, etc.


2024/2025 GILLETTE EVENTS (AS OF MAY 2024):

Saturday April 27: NE REVS vs Inter Miami
Saturday May 18: NE REVS vs Philly Union
Wednesday June 12: TOM BRADY Patriots Hall of Fame Ceremony
Wednesday July 17: ZACK BRYAN concert
Friday August 2: METALLICA concert
Friday August 23: KENNY CHESNEY DAY 1 concert

Thank you for a successful 2024 Scholarship golf fundraiser!

We were back on the green yesterday to raise money for our seniors! And what a great day it was! ⛳ Many thanks to our 13 teams (only some of which are pictured here). Because of you, our seniors have access to greater opportunities! 💚

To our hole sponsors:

And, to our Corporate Sponsor:

We can’t thank you enough for your contribution to our seniors’ future.💚 We would also like to thank Saraiva Enterprises for their gracious donation of prizes for our top 3 teams, and Allendale Country Club for their continued hospitality in helping us hold this event every year.

To all mentioned above, our seniors thank you!

And to our volunteers:

Events like this can’t happen without your time and efforts. We thank you for your continued support. 💚

Annual Pops Concert – 2024 Honoree Yvette Nunes

A heartfelt thank you to Mr. Madrigale and Mr. Kingsland for joining us at tonight’s Pops Concert. Together, with Mr. Flint, they represent over 50 years of music directorship at Dartmouth Public Schools.

In what is truly a testament to our honoree’s devotion to the DPS music program, all three have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Mrs. Yvette Nunes as a volunteer, DPS staff member and overall supporter of music education.

After all, “It’s for the kids!”


Due to heavier rain than was predicted today, Allendale CC has moved our scholarship fundraiser to Sunday, May 21. Golf will still be at 1pm with dinner at 6pm.

Teams who may have conflicts should email Russ Benoit or Sue Benoit directly to make arrangements.

Also, teams who may have not been able to sign up now have until May 11 to get their team and payment in. Click here for a signup form!
