Honoring the Past and Present
While Building for the Future
The Dallastown Area Educational Foundation offers several ways to pay tributes to loved ones which also benefit our students: (1) Commemorative Bricks and (2) Courtyard of Honor Plaques.
Commemorative bricks, available for purchase at $50 each,
are placed near the main entrance of the high school.
Proceeds fund scholarships awarded through the Dallastown Foundation Scholarship Committee.
Together, we're Leaving a Legacy for Learning!
Engraved plaques, available for $150 each, are placed in the middle school's
Courtyard of Honor to recognize veterans from each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. Veterans Day is Monday, November 11th.
These tributes are permanent and will not be removed.
*Cumulative brick orders are processed after reaching a minimum of ten bricks
