    Document projectors used with the Smart boards let students read along with the teacher.

APEX Night Silent Auction

APEX Night is a huge event. Dennison families dine on a catered meal and donated deserts from our many baker volunteers. After dinner, kids play in the swimming pool, climb on the rock wall, skate on an indoor skating rink, or adventure in the kid's treehouse for our younger folk. Parents can participate in a silent auction and socialize with friends. APEX Night is DCSF's premiere event.

However, there is much work in preparation for the silent auction, setting up the dinner, and presenting all the donated items. We need parents to help gather items for the baskets and art projects. These items bring in top dollar amounts. The success of this event is largely due to the generosity of our community members and parent volunteers working together for one fun night. Please consider donating your time, especially if you cannot give financially.
What is Apex Night?
Apex Night and Silent Auction
Apex Night is a family outing to the Apex Center in Arvada where kids and parents can engage in a variety of sporting events and fun. Traditionally, there has been a catered dinner and of course, the Silent Action.

For the Silent Auction to be successful, DSCF is asking businesses and individuals who can donate a good or service to contact an auction coordinator by
