Scholastic Book Fair at Dingeman

Dec 10-14th

Our Annual Scholastic Book fair starts  Monday, December 10th. We have decided to try something new this year and hold a Holiday Book Fair instead of our Annual Spring Book Fair. We thought with the holidays approaching, we would offer parents/guardians a chance to do some early shopping. Our Book Fair will have a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. On Thursday, December 13th, we will have Book Fair Family Night featuring Honor Choir, Classroom performances, Food Trucks, Raffle drawing, and much more. 
Parents can also shop online and be a part of our Book Fair by using the following link:

Night at the Wax Museum Musical

Wednesday, Dec 19th at 7pm

Fourth and Fifth Graders from Mr. Saguil’s and Ms. Morioka’s seminar classes at Dingeman Elementary School will present to the community a performance of  Night at the Wax Museum Musical on Dec 19th at 7pm at the MPR.  The musical is filled with catchy songs, crazy antics, and historical figures that magically come alive and interact with the unfortunate students who are volunteering at Cultully Museum. King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Blackbeard, Cleopatra, Pancho Villa, and Calamity Jane are just a few of the famous people who come alive to dance and sing. "This year, it’s a mix of history and fun," said fifth grader Sargini Sudarsan, who plays Ivy Sweet in the play. "You learn about history in an indirect way."

Volunteer Opportunities


School Improvements - Message From our President

Are you interested in seeing a better, more beautified, updated Dingeman? If the answer is, yes, then we need your expertise! Looking for volunteers who have experience in construction, architecture, design, or engineering. However, not limited to just those areas as everyone’s input is welcome. Just like our homes, our schools need regular attention and upkeep. Think about the hundreds of students, staff, and visitors that have gone thru Dingeman which can cause a lot of wear and tear. This is exactly why we need this sub-committee and volunteers to help potentially make Dingeman even a better place. Dingeman parents have a lot of talent, so let’s utilize each one of our individual talents and come together to create even a better environment for our children. This committee will not involve a great deal of time but looking for some motivated individuals who have an interest in making some change around the school. We need your advice, ideas and experiences. If interested please contact me at President@dingeman.net or 619-368-3061.

Thank You!

Nilesh Patel, FFC President



Art Corp Volunteers Needed

Get involved in your child’s class by volunteering for Art Corps!
Many classes are still in need of Art Corps Volunteers to help teach and assist with art lessons in the classroom. Even if you don't want to teach a lesson, helpers are very important as well! The parent workshops are a lot of fun, and your children will love having you be a part of their art projects! Please talk to your class’s Art Corps liaison or your child’s teacher if you would like to
volunteer for Art Corps. We are looking forward to a wonderful year of Enrichment for our kids.


Questions? Please email Art Corps Program Coordinator Lisa Shadburn at Dr.Lisa_Shadburn@yahoo.com


You Make A Difference at Dingeman!

Be a volunteer!! Without the help of FFC volunteers like you, we would not be able to provide such a rich, exciting, and meaningful school experience for our children. Click here to see all possible ways you can help us.
