• D3 Day of Good Deeds

    DESANA DAY OF GOOD DEEDS (D3 DAY, for short!)

    Our DeSana Day of Good Deeds (or D3 Day, for short!) is back in full force this spring!! D3 Day is a wonderful day for all of our DeSana students and staff to come together . . . engage in community service projects . . . work side-by-side for a common and greater good . . . and make a marked difference in our fabulous community and in the lives of many individuals.

     Throughout the morning of Friday May 21st, students and staff will work with different community non-profit and charitable organizations at DeSana, participating in such projects as making blankets for children to snuggle with, as they arrive at a hospital emergency room . . . to brightening the day of some of our senior citizens in the community by creating messages of hope and positivity to share with them . . . to writing notes of appreciation to send to our US troops overseas . . . to collecting and sorting food for local food pantries. All these acts of service, and many more, will be the top priority for our young Dragons as they give of their time, their talents, and their hearts throughout the morning to impact the lives of others in a positive way! This year's D3 Day is for both our students at DeSana for face-to-face learning and for our students who are learning virtually. More information will be forthcoming on how all of our students can be involved in this special day of community service.

    See below for more information about exciting activities and projects that relate to our wonderful DeSana Day of Good Deeds, as we introduce and reintroduce our young Dragons to this awesome DeSana tradition! And stay tuned for more D3 Day news to come in the weeks ahead! 


    The D3 Day 2021 Food Drive has begun! For the months of March, April and May we will collect a different food item that will be donated to The Place of Forsyth and Georgia Mountain Food Bank. We are collecting DRY CEREAL for March. Please have your child bring boxes of dry breakfast cereal to their Dragon Time teacher. The competition this year is between Dragon Time classes in each grade level. The Dragon Time in each grade with the most food collected (percentage based) will get a special surprise in homeroom. Please remember to support our food drive which helps stock the pantries of The Place of Forsyth and Georgia Mountain Food Bank. We can only make D3 Day a success with all of your help!
