Our school has an exciting story to share with the families of prospective and incoming students and no one can tell this story better than our current parents. Ambassador Program volunteers represent our school to prospective, incoming, and current parents, their families, and our community at large. Parent Ambassadors welcome and support new families at large school events; connect with new families during the school year; provide guidance to parents seeking information, and support the school’s efforts to expand parent and community involvement at DIS. Ongoing support is needed throughout the year. If you would like to attend and help host welcome events including the Back to School Pool Parties, Orientations, Admissions Events, Welcome Cocktail Party, and General Membership meetings; please volunteer for our Ambassador Program. We'd love for you to help us welcome new families to DIS!
