Yearbooks For Sale Online!

Dana Middle has implemented a new online program for purchasing school-related items such as yearbooks and lost textbooks. The system is called School Cash Online and is approved by the SDUSD Finances Department. Parents must register for a School Cash Online account. The account will follow the student as they matriculate to Correia and Point Loma High School.

Dana families can reserve their copy of our 2021-22 yearbook using this system. Yearbooks are on sale for $32.00. Click this link for more information!

Parents wishing to use a traditional method for ordering yearbooks can contact Finance Secretary Theresa Jordan at tjordan@sandi.net for information on paying with cash or a check. Checks should be made payable to Dana Middle School ASB.

Students can also use this system to pay for lost textbooks. Please contact Theresa Jordan (tjordan@sandi.net) or Marta Thiele (mthiele@sandi.net) with questions.
