We are only 2 weeks away from the All Fore One Golf and Tennis Tournaments presented by Village Orthodontics!  Sign up today for this fun event that will take place on Monday, October 1, at Dunwoody Country Club. Golf registration begins at 8:30 am and tennis at 11:00am.  Tennis will be concluded by 2pm for those of you who have elementary school pick-ups!


As you may know, the money we raised last year was donated to DHS and helped with their sports grounds. The impact the money made was immediate and is being enjoyed by the DHS community. Please consider participating in this worthwhile even! Our good public schools continue to anchor Dunwoody, making it a great place to live!


Please go to for more information! We hope to see many of you on October 1!











Picture Day will be Tuesday, October 2. Order forms went out in last 

Thursday's Tip folder.  


To order pictures: 

Students should bring their completed form (with payment enclosed) on photo day.  


Parents may also pre-pay online by using the link and passcode below. If they choose to pre-pay, the student must bring their printed receipt on photo day as proof of payment and order confirmation. The pre-pay option will end the evening of October 1, so online ordering will not be an option on the morning of picture day.

Passcode:  6018F19C


Parents who don't wish to pre-pay will receive a card with the instructions to view the images online, and a unique passcode for their student to view and order images approximately 2 weeks after picture day. There will be a $5 shipping charge on orders shipped home instead of the school.

Parents who pre-pay and are not satisfied with their order may return the picture package on make-up day (October 23rd) and have their pictures retaken at no charge. 


Please do not put order forms in the PTO mailbox. Students should have their forms with them the day of pictures.
