About Us

Welcome friends, parents, families, students, staff and community to the Friends of Dana & Correia Middle Schools parent association! During the 2020-21 school year, things were so uncertain due to the COVID pandemic, but we had a very dedicated group of parents, community members and staff from both Dana and Correia that had a mission to complete the vision of the original founders of both the Dana Association and the Correia Association.


The idea had always been to, one day, combine the efforts of both organizations into one collaborative group that could serve both schools, create a more collective 4-year experience for students and families, and increase the parent volunteer participation and fundraising opportunities at both middle schools in our cluster.  I am so happy and proud to announce that we have finally made that vision a reality!


This year, and going forward, we will be working together with both Dana and Correia to support all students, teachers and staff just as we have done separately in the past.  We are all so very excited to get this new parent group off the ground and we cannot wait to do the good work that we are all so passionate about; enriching the student experience and providing support to teachers and staff when needed.


We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible! Please remember our organization when you are looking to make that extra charitable donation for an easy tax write off. Our Tax ID number is 33-0781746


We will hold monthly meetings, as we did in the past, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and will alternate between Dana and Correia. In addition, we will have a Zoom link for anyone that cannot attend in person, but would like to know more about our group and how to get involved.  All are welcome to attend!  Please click the "Meetings" link to the left of this page for more details


 Finally, on behalf of the entire FODaC parent association, I would like to thank you for your generous donations, your time and energy and your dedication to helping to make the middle school experience for our students exciting, enriching and fulfilling. We cannot succeed without you.
