All parents are automatically members of PADS, the only donation is your time! We ask that each family commit to a minimum of one committee. Remember, "many hands make light work!" Theresa & Suzanne both feel very strongly that the dancers, and the school as a whole, benefit greatly when parents are involved. PADS operates best when each of you is willing to chip in. For fall 2013, we will have Class Representatives for each class, who will share PADS committee and meeting info to their respective classes in a convenient way. Please contact Maureen O'Hanley, PADS President, if you are interested in being a Class Rep. The PADS Mission, taken from PADS Bylaws: To fundraise for the Dunleavy Shaffer dancers to help defray travel costs to competitions & events. To organize parent volunteers in support of Dunleavy Shaffer School activities. To serve as a forum for communication between teachers of Dunleavy Shaffer and parents. To promote Irish dance.
